PROVO, Utah – The individuals representing BYU football at Big 12 Media Days has been revealed.

Big 12 Football Media Days take place on July 12 and 13 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. BYU coach Kalani Sitake and five Cougar football players will go through interviews on July 12.

The five players that will join Sitake in Arlington include quarterback Kedon Slovis, wide receiver Kody Epps, linebacker Ben Bywater, defensive end Tyler Batty, and punter Ryan Rehkow.

BYU is the only program among the 14 Big 12 programs that are bringing a specialist to Media Days. Rehkow has had 39 punts in his career that have gone longer than 50 yards.

Kedon Slovis is no stranger to Media Day events. He took part in Pac-12 Media Day when he was a quarterback at USC in 2021. Slovis is one of nine signal-callers in the conference that will descend on Arlington over the two-day event.

Slovis is in his first year at BYU after transferring from Pittsburgh. The graduate transfer was named the starting quarterback after spring ball by offensive coordinator Aaron Roderick.
