FORT WORTH, Texas – Missionaries from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints made up a nice portion of the 44,599 fans that attended BYU/TCU on Saturday.
Nearly all of Section 416 on the west side of Amon G. Carter Stadium had missionaries serving in the Dallas-Fort Worth mission.

They were cheering on the BYU Cougars in the game. BYU is owned and operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Unfortunately for the elders and sisters, BYU didn’t give them a game that had them cheering for much. TCU won in a blowout, 44-11.
But regardless of the final score, the missionaries stayed for the entire game.

After the game, despite the outcome, players and coaches from the BYU football team did their customary singing of Rise & Shout, facing many of the BYU fans. When the song concluded, BYU head coach Kalani Sitake pointed and waved to that section of Latter-day Saints missionaries.
