PROVO, Utah -- We are about 20 minutes from kickoff and the band already has started the pregame show. No big surprises for either team. BYU running back Harvey Unga is warming up, but it doesn’t look like safety Scott Johnson is out there. Offensive lineman Braden Hansen is dressed and was warming up, which is interesting since he was supposed to be out 1-3 weeks with a knee injury.
It’s starting to become a beautiful evening here in Provo. The lights are already on and the sun is starting to sett. The stadium is nestled against the mountains, so it makes for a picturesque view.
There’s a nice little contingent of Florida State fans here. There’s a group on the left side of the stands in the North end zone and then there are other fans in various spots throughout the stadium.
This is BYU’s home opener. The Cougars haven’t lost at LaVell Edwards Stadium since Nov. 19, 2005 against Utah, that’s 18 consecutive games.
