BYU announced Saturday afternoon that they will allow fans at LaVell Edwards Stadium for Saturday’s game versus Texas State — the game “will be played with approximately 6,000 spectators in attendance”, which is roughly 10% of LES capacity.
More from the official announcement:
Individuals who originally purchased tickets for the home season opener versus Troy will have their tickets honored for this Saturday’s game. The BYU Ticket Office will distribute the BYU-Texas State tickets electronically on Thursday, Oct. 22, along with detailed gameday instructions. The game will be broadcast nationally on ESPN at 8:15 p.m. MDT.
BYU will consider increasing attendance at future home games as the season progresses based on the new state COVID-19 Transmission Index Metrix and the guidance of state and county public health officials.
This will be the first game this year that fans are allowed at LES. BYU’s game Friday night at Houston was the first that BYU has played in front of fans this season. Many in attendance noted that BYU had just as many fans — if not more — than Houston.
BYU currently has three more home games after Texas State, which include Western Kentucky, North Alabama, and San Diego State.
