In Game

BYU fans are very loud and give the Cougars lots of support. The fans here show off their school pride by singing the fight song “Rise & Shout, the Cougars are Out.” Here at BYU people also aren’t afraid to show appreciation for the small things as the fans will get up and cheer for every first down and third down stop.

After years of having a fractured student section located throughout the stadium, BYU has finally assembled all the students in one place. The section is known as the ABYSS, the Almighty Brigham Young Student Section is the most vocal section at BYU games as they cheer on the Cougars to victory. If you want to sit with the most vocal fans at a BYU game look to get tickets in the student section.

Things to check out

The View

LaVell Edwards Stadium provides an incredible view of the Wasatch Mountains. When BYU fans look to the east not only can they see BYU spelled out by the seats, but they can also see these beautiful mountains. If attending a game at BYU try to get seats facing the Wasatch Mountains so that you can view one of the most breathtaking sights in all of college football during the game.

Lighting of the Y

Students partake in this almost 100-year-old homecoming tradition by climbing Y Mountain and screwing in 150 light bulbs into a 380-foot tall letter Y. Originally students lit the Y by burning mattress stuffing soaked in flammable liquids. However, today’s light bulbs are much safer. If you want to take part in this tradition, show up for the homecoming game.

Fight Songs

  1. Rise & Shout, the Cougars are Out

    Rise all loyal cougars and hurl your challenge to the foe.
    You will fight, day or night, rain or snow.
    Loyal, strong, and true
    Wear the white and blue.
    While we sing, get set to spring.
    Come on Cougars it’s up to you. Oh!  

    CHORUS:
    Rise and shout, the Cougars are out
    along the trail to fame and glory. Rise and shout, our cheers will ring out
    As you unfold your vict’ry story.
    On you go to vanquish the foe for Alma Mater’s sons and daughters.
    As we join in song, in praise of you, our faith is strong. We’ll raise our colors high in the blue
    And cheer our Cougars of BYU.  

    (CHANT)
