BYU having 'ongoing discussions' with state, county health officials to get some fans at next week's game


From an atmosphere perspective, the matchup with Louisiana Tech of Conference USA was a carbon copy of the Sept. 26 game against Troy.


Expect that to be announced early next week, perhaps as soon as Monday, BYU athletic director Tom Holmoe said Friday morning in a roundtable discussion via Zoom with reporters.


Holmoe said the discussions with state and Utah County health officials “are ongoing” and he was hopeful the number of fans BYU planned to get into the stadium for the first two games — 6,000 — is possible this time.


When the cities of Provo and Orem were moved into moderate risk (orange) status a few weeks ago, officials said that was for a two-week chunk of time.


However, starting center James Empey missed the game and was on the sidelines with a protective boot on his right foot.


Tukuafu was one of the pregame flag bearers, along with walk-on receiver Hobbs Nyberg and special teams aces Ryan Rehkow and Caleb Christensen.
