PROVO — The BYU’s home opener is finally here.
The Cougars will host Utah State at South Field on Saturday at 1 p.m. — and it can be seen live at deseretnews.com.
The 5-1 Cougars couldn’t be more excited.
“We love playing on South Field,” said BYU captain Ryan Roundy, “And our fans are always the best. We’re excited to have them there and hopefully put on a good show.”
The Aggies come to Provo for the first time since 2009 when BYU’s first National Championship team led by All-American and former USA 7′s Eagle Steve St. Pierre beat USU by the score of 111-3 on a live nationally telecast match on BYUtv.
Last week’s match against top men’s club, the Denver Barbarians, was scratched last weekend due to travel concerns for both teams in inclement weather.
BYU hosts five out of the next six matches in Provo highlighted with appearances by New York Athletic Club (2012 Men’s Division Champions) in the Champions Challenge and the University of Utah in the Wasatch Cup.
“We’re at the half way point of this season,” said BYU head coach David Smyth, “And we’ve seen some good things, but we’re far from a completed product. We’re looking forward to being back out on South Field and playing some good, entertaining rugby and getting ourselves ready for the post-season.”
Gates open at noon. Tickets can be bought at the gate for $8 for adults and $5 for students.
