Big 12 football schedule: These fans are planning a trip to BYU

The Big 12 released their 2023 football schedule on Tuesday, letting fans know when their favorite teams will be away – and where they’ll be going.

While the Deseret News wrote about the best road trips for BYU fans this fall, others following the release of the Big 12 football schedule took to Twitter to share their excitement about visiting Provo.

โ€œIf you are considering a road game, by all accounts Provo is THE best experience for touring fans. I’ve never heard an unkind word about the stadium, the BYU fans, or the view,” he tweeted Viva the matadorsa fan account for Texas Tech University.

Devin Newsomthe host of the University of Oklahoma women’s gymnastics team, tweeted that this fall’s schedule gives him a chance to cross LaVell Edwards Stadium off his college football bucket list.

โ€œI am really looking forward to a trip to Provo. … BYU was ALWAYS on my list,” he said.

Tuesday wasn’t the first time BYU was hailed as a great place to visit.

BYU quarterback recruit Kedon Slovis recently said that his parents’ experience at Provo at the September 2019 BYU-USC game helps explain his interest in moving to the school.

“My dad talked about how ‘this is the cleanest stadium I’ve ever been to and they bring ice cream to opposing fans,'” Slovis said. “He fell in love with the place. What I took away from the game against BYU was how nice the fans were and what a great environment it is to play in Provo.”

Last fall, several Baylor fans who attended their team’s Sept. 10 game in Provo tweeted about how wonderful it was to interact with Cougars fans, Deseret News reported at the time.

โ€œI have watched college football games at dozens of stadiums across the United States and I can say without hesitation that BYU’s fans and game presentation are the best I have ever experienced. Massive home advantage. Hats off, cougars. You’re great,” said one Twitter user after the game.

A Baylor student who came to Provo to cover the game said LaVell Edwards Stadium had “the best view in college football.”

Baylor and BYU are no longer playing in 2023, but fans from other Big 12 schools seem to have taken Baylor fans’ criticisms of Provo to heart.

Here’s what people said Tuesday about BYU’s visit following the release of the Big 12 football schedule:
