SALT LAKE CITY – A couple of former BYU football standouts swapped jerseys on the field following a game during the NFL’s Week 11 slate.

Former Cougar wide receiver Dax Milne and the Washington Football Team faced off against ex-BYU offensive lineman Brady Christensen and the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, November 21.

Milne’s team beat Christensen’s squad, 27-21.

After the game, the rookies exchanged jerseys and paused for a photo before parting ways.

A day later, Milne tweeted a photo of the jersey swap.

“Great day! Big WFT win and seeing my Cougar brother @Brady_BYU Go Cougs!” the WFT receiver posted.

Milne finished the game with one catch for five yards.

This season, the former BYU wideout has seven receptions for 71 yards.

Christensen had an excellent outing in which he allowed zero quarterback pressure and no sacks, according to PFF.

With the result, Milne’s team improve to a 4-6 record this season and Christensen’s fell to 5-6.

Washington’s next game is against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday, November 29 at 6:15 p.m. (MDT) on ESPN.

Carolina’s next game is against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, November 28 at 11 a.m. (MDT) on FOX.
