Patrick Mahomes completes BYU fan’s Jayhawks/Chiefs Road Trip
The Chiefs hosted the Bears on GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri on Sunday, September 24.
A day before the Chiefs played the Bears, the nearby Kansas Jayhawks hosted the BYU Cougars for their first Big 12 Conference game as a member of the power league.
Like many BYU road games, the stands at Kansas’ David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium were filled with lots of Cougar blue despite, including that of @jasonpbyu on X, formerly known as Twitter, and his family.
On September 24, @jasonpbyu shared photos of himself and his sons outside of Arrowhead Stadium with a pair of signs. One sign paid homage to former BYU player and current Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, who currently stars in a State Farm commercial alongside Mahomes.
The other sign detailed a checklist of the family’s football-filled weekend with the following items:
- Flight from Lubbock (Texas) to Kansas City
- Watch BYU vs. Kansas
- Come to Chiefs Game
- Meet Patrick Mahomes
Before kickoff, the first three items had checkmarks next to them as completed.

Patrick Mahomes autographs BYU fan’s signs
Following the Chiefs’ 41-10 dismantling of the Bears, Mahomes went to the sidelines and up to the base of the remaining crowd.
The superstar quarterback began signing autographs for fans, including @jasonpbyu’s sons.
Mahomes was shown on FOX’s television broadcast as he signed the family’s poster featuring a BYU logo.
@jasonpbyu stated that Reid also acknowledged the family’s poster.
“That’s me and my sons. Mahomes only signed 2 autographs… my son mini helmet and the poster. Reid laughed at our other sign but didn’t stop,” @jasonpbyu posted on social media.
