BYU moves spring-ending 'open practice' indoors due to forecasted weather

PROVO — BYU was set to wrap up spring football camp with a fan-friendly open practice Friday at LaVell Edwards Stadium.

But that 15th practice of the spring will no longer be open — or outdoors.

Due to inclement weather, the Cougars have moved Friday's practice from the outdoor stadium that bears the name of the late great college football Hall of Famer to the Indoor Practice Facility on campus. As a result, the team will not be able to accommodate fans at the new venue.

BYU originally planned to host up to 7,500 fans in a socially-distanced, mask-mandated capacity. For obvious reasons — namely, the reduced size of the practice facility to the 63,000-seat stadium — that will no longer be possible. Media also will not be allowed to attend.

Any fans who purchased tickets for the practice will receive a full refund, the school said. The refund will be processed automatically, and no action is required.

Fans who do not receive the refund within several days can contact the BYU ticket office at 801-422-2981 or email them at
