American Football

Fall weather, spirited cheerleaders, an entertaining marching band, dedicated fans, and a flying football: College football is what thousands of Americans look forward to each fall. American football allows men and women, young and old, to cheer on their favorite teams. For fans in Provo, Utah, the college football team of choice is the Brigham Young University Cougars.

Nomen Global students experienced this unique aspect of American culture last Saturday night. We met at LaVell Edwards Stadium, the university's outdoor stadium that seats over 63,000 fans. After the Cougar Marching Band introduced the national anthem (The Star-Spangled Banner), we welcomed the BYU Cougars to the field! The players quickly took control of the game, and BYU won with 26 points; San Jose State, 16.

For many of our students, this football game was a night of firsts! Take a look at a few of the pictures we took.

A few of our ambitious students studied the rules before the game to ensure a great evening! Do you know all the rules to American football? Read about them here! For a slideshow of official pictures from the game, click here.
