With exclusive content and unprecedented all-access broadcasting, BYUtv is the #1 destination for every BYU football fan. This year, the stakes are higher and Cougar fans are more excited than ever. Sideline reporter Lauren Francom said, “This season carries so much intrigue with the new coaching staff, the return of Taysom Hill, and arguably the most difficult schedule in BYU history.”

Here’s how to get the most out of your 2016-17 football experience with BYUtv Sports on BYUtv:


Countdown to Kickoff

One hour before the game, rise and shout with Countdown to Kickoff to get up-to-date with everything you need to know before the faceoff. Join the players and coaches on the field for an in-depth preview of the game. Francom, a regular host on Countdown to Kickoff, said, “I’m looking forward to bringing fans to the field with me to feel the excitement and anticipation that is palpable in LaVell Edwards Stadium.”

You might be surprised by how much work and preparation goes into just one successful broadcast of Countdown to Kickoff. Francom explains, “I’m at practice several times a week talking to players and coaches. I’m constantly researching storylines, and I’m studying game notes and stats in order to provide the best quality information possible.”


Post-Game Show

Immediately following the game, tune in to the Post-Game Show. Still hyped about an epic touchdown? Wondering what is going through Coach Sitake’s head when the clock runs out? Want to know more about why a certain play did or didn’t work? The Post-Game Show will cover all that and more. David Nixon, former Cougar team captain and NFL linebacker, is one of the expert hosts on the Post-Game Show. This broadcast is unique because, according to Nixon, “we are able to capture a lot of the immediate emotion from the game” through post-game interviews and a fresh review of game states and highlights.

Nixon said, “I always look forward to relaying my personal experiences, and how they relate to what viewers are seeing on the field.” His favorite part of this job? “I get the chance to remain close to the team and, most importantly, to the game of football.” 



After Further Review

After Further Review is your go-to place for discussing and digesting all things BYU football like you’ve never done before. Tune in on Tuesday nights for brand-new episodes with host Dave McCann and his panel of expert analysts. Break down and discover exclusive insight on the most talked-about tactics, plays, touchdowns, and more from the latest games.

McCann describes After Further Review as “tailor made for every BYU football fan. Both the lifelong football fan and the newcomer can find a home here and come to a better understanding of the game.” What he’s most looking forward to this season? “It’s fun to spend an hour talking football with former Cougars Blaine Fowler, David Nixon, and Brian Logan. They know their stuff—and all three think they are funny! We have a great exchange of ideas and one-liners,
all while explaining the highs and lows of football.”
