This morning defensive backs Brandon Bradley and Brandon Howard took a trip around campus, quizzing BYU students and fans on their knowledge of BYU football. The interviews are for the pair's self-titled segment, "Wall to Wall With B-Squared" which will be posted here at byucougars.com periodically through the upcoming weeks.

Questions included:

- Which team will BYU face in its 2009 season opener?

- Name the BYU receiver who led the country in receiving yards this season and has declared himself eligible for the NFL Draft.

- What do you think the team's 2009 motto should be?

Bradley and Howard also carried with them several photos of current and past BYU players, asking people to identify them.

Check back and make sure you watch these interviews. You'll definitely be surprised at some of the responses the players received (or didn't receive). Very entertaining!
