On Wednesday morning, BYU Athletics Director Tom Holmoe announced that the video boards, LED ribbons, and sound system at Lavell Edwards Stadium will be upgraded for the 2021 BYU Football season. In addition, Holmoe announced that the updates will be funded entirely by NU SKIN. You can listen to Holmoe's full comments here:
According to Provo City, the new scoreboard on the south endzone will be 131'x48'. Below is an excerpt from the official proposal to Provo City:
" The proposal would replace the south end scoreboard with a new 131-foot by 48-foot electronic scoreboard, as well as make upgrades to the north end scoreboard and the ribbon sponsor signs adjacent to both scoreboards."
According to a report by Deseret News in 2012, the previous south endzone scoreboard was 51'x34'.
The new scoreboards will be ready for BYU's first home game in September against Utah. In March, BYU announced their plans to begin ticket sales in May. The Cougars will host three P5 teams and Boise State in 2021:
Utah - Saturday Sep. 11
BYU hosts rival Utah at home. BYU will have another chance to end the streak.
Arizona State - Saturday Sep. 18
BYU will face a third PAC-12 South opponent in as many weeks when they host Arizona State on September 18th.
USF - Saturday Sep. 25
BYU will play their third-straight home game against USF on September 25th.
Boise State - Saturday Oct. 9

Virginia - Saturday Oct. 30

Idaho State - Saturday Nov. 6
