PROVO, Utah, Sept. 22, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — Brigham Young University football will play its next two games without fans, it was announced Tuesday.
“In accordance with the state of Utah’s announcement today moving Provo from low (yellow) to a moderate (orange) risk COVID-19 designation, the BYU-Troy football game on Saturday, Sept. 26, will be played without fans at LaVell Edwards Stadium,” said a news release from the Provo university.
The game will be televised nationally on ESPN at 8:15 p.m., the news release said.
The state’s announced designation for Provo covers a 14-day period, which means the BYU versus Louisiana Tech game on Friday, Oct. 2, will also be played without fans. The university will continue to provide additional information as it becomes available, the news release said.
Tickets purchased for the Troy game will be honored for the first home game once the state designation changes to allow BYU to host fans in the stadium, officials said. Ticket holders who are interested in receiving a refund for the Troy tickets can email the BYU ticket office at BYUtickets@byu.edu.
