In the 3rd straight home game for the Badgers and in the home portion of this “home and away” showdown the Badgers host the BYU Cougars from Provo, Utah.  Game time at the Camp is 2:30 pm.  Last year Bucky spanked the Cougars 40-6 at LaVell Edwards Stadium.  Obviously the Cougars will be looking for revenge for that smack down.   The BYU head coach is Kalani Sitake and he is the first Tongan to be a collegiate football head coach.   During his playing career he was a 3 year starter at fullback with the Cougars.  His two year head coaching record with the Cougars is 13-13.  Last year they finished a disappointing 4-9 and in 2016 the Cougars were 8-4 including a win at Michigan State and a bowl game win.  BYU’s mascot is of course a cougar named Cosmo.  For those of you into fight songs here is a link to BYU’s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7f3AwUN1XE4.   My personal choice is “On Wisconsin”.  BYU is an independent and the BYU Cougar football program has a proud championship heritage that includes a national championship (1984), Heisman Trophy winner (Ty Detmer) and Super Bowl champions (Jim McMahon and Steve Young were Super Bowl winning QBs)
