In 1896, Brigham was still an academy

Brigham Young State University in Provo Jalen Saunders Jersey , Utah is represented by the Cougars in the NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision. Teams included in this Division play in the Mountain West Conference. The Cougars have bagged 23 of these conferences. In addition the team has played in 28 various bowl events. The national championship in football was conceded to the team in 1984

In 1896, Brigham was still an academy. Football was introduced and played for a time but it was soon neglected. It was forgotten until 1922 when the school made its first fumbling attempts at playing it. G. Ott Romney was hired to coach the team by the school in 1928. Under their coach, the team tasted their first minor successes.

Briefly, in the period preceding World War II Dexter McDougle Shirt , the first significant achievements of the team were made. In that period, they attained to some prominence in the sporting world. In 1932, the Cougars scored a total of 188-50. Ten years after, they managed to defeat the University of Utah after a long succession of losses.. The match was a close one at 12-7.

In 1957 and 1958 Pink Dexter McDougle Jersey , the Cougars won back-to-back victories. Those victories encouraged the community to support the team and in no time, the Cougar's home stadium was completed (1964). It had a seating capacity of 30,000. Previous to the completion of the stadium, the team received its first All-American player award. This was in 1961 and the distinction was given to running back Dexter McDougle Jets Jersey , Eldon "The Phantom" Fortie.

1965 was a major turning point in the career of the team. That was the year that team garnered its first conference championship under the coaching skills of Tommy Hudspeth. Three more winning seasons were in store for the team before Hudspeth retired.
