PROVO -- It's something you may see only once in a lifetime: a motorized couch.

Two BYU students say their new invention is years too late. They made plans years ago to drive their couch to their high school football games.

After testing it and driving around on BYU's campus, they say the university banned their creative invention.

"I'm excited for when my kids come to BYU. I'll show them on the wall of rules, like no motorized couches, and I'll be like, ‘That was me!'" says Nicholas Homer, BYU student from Riverton.

They got the motor from an old wheelchair, though it's not really meant to hold so much weight.

The students say their favorite thing to do on their motorized couch is go to the Wendy's drive-thru.
