The replacement for BYU’s hillside stadium, the 33,000-seat Cougar Stadium opened in time for the 1964 football season. Remodels over 55 years have added north and south end zones and another 30,000 seats to what would be renamed LaVell Edwards Stadium; a 2019 update will connect the stadium corners.
