The Cougars hosted the Sooners at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo, Utah on Saturday, November 18.

Before kickoff, Gunther shared a special moment as he ran onto the field with his son.

Gunther is a junior for the Cougars but was listed as one of the non-seniors to be honored during BYU’s final home game of the 2023 season.

This season, Gunther has recorded one reception for three yards. The wideout’s catch came during BYU’s loss at Kansas on September 23.

During his BYU career, the Cedar Hills, Utah native has recorded one catch for three yards and two carries for eight yards. He’s also returned eight punts for 29 yards and four kickoffs for 44 yards. Gunther has also tallied six total tackles, four solo tackles, and one forced fumble.

BYU’s game against Oklahoma is broadcast on ESPNKSL NewsRadio, and KSLSports.com.

Oklahoma vs. BYU

BYU entered the matchup on a three-game losing streak after getting blown out by No. 7 Texas, West Virginia, and Iowa State. The Cougars currently own a 5-5 record, including 2-5 in Big 12 Conference games.

Oklahoma arrived in Provo with an 8-2 record. The Sooners are coming off a blowout win over West Virginia. Oklahoma beat West Virginia to end a two-game skid. Prior to losses against Kansas and No. 22 Oklahoma State, Oklahoma had opened the season with a 7-0 start.
