Save the date! On Friday, March 31, Cougar fans will have the opportunity to get an early glimpse at the 2023 BYU football team and see how well some of their favorite former players still stack up against each other in LaVell Edwards Stadium.

In conjunction with the football program's annual Alumni Day for former players and their families, BYU football will conduct a public Spring Scrimmage at 3 p.m. MT followed by the return of the Alumni Game at 5 p.m. MT on Friday, March 31. Gates at LaVell Edwards Stadium will open at 2 p.m. Both events are free to the public and will be broadcast live on BYUtv. 

Spring Scrimmage & Alumni Game (LaVell Edwards Stadium)

  •   2:00 p.m. MT - LaVell Edwards Stadium gates open
  •   3:00 p.m. MT - BYU Spring Scrimmage 
  •   5:00 p.m. MT - BYU Alumni Game

Last year's Alumni Game ended in dramatic fashion as fans witnessed Cougar greats of the past back in LaVell Edwards Stadium for a highly competitive game that finished with a Max Hall Hail Mary touchdown pass to Bryan Kehl as time expired to give Team Navy a 31-27 victory over Team Royal.  

This year head coach Kalani Sitake's 2023 team will scrimmage for fans prior to the Alumni Game as part of the squad's 15 spring practices taking place in preparation for the program's first season this fall in the Big 12 Conference. BYU's inaugural Big 12 schedule was announced on Tuesday.  

BYUtv will provide fans a day full of BYU football programming on Alumni Day. In addition to live coverage of the Spring Scrimmage and Alumni Game, BYUtv will lead off its football programming at 10 a.m. with a live two-hour BYU Sports Nation Alumni Day Special, followed by the rebroadcast of last season's BYU vs. Baylor game in LaVell Edwards Stadium.
