PROVO — BYU announced Monday plans to replace the video walls and scoreboards in the end zones at LaVell Edwards Stadium.

The new scoreboards, which are the result of a sponsorship by Nu Skin Enterprises and its partnership with IMG College, will include state-of-the-art LED video walls in the north and south end zones as well as LED ribbon boards across the top of both end zones.

"We are very thankful to Nu Skin Enterprises for its commitment to athletics and the BYU community," BYU athletic director Tom Holmoe said in a statement. "Nu Skin has been a vital partner with BYU for two decades. These new LED video walls will be a great addition to the game-day experience for Cougar fans at LaVell Edwards Stadium."

Construction is anticipated to begin this spring, and the project is expected to be completed by the season-opener at Edwards Stadium against Washington State on Sept. 1.

"We are delighted to continue our long-standing sponsorship of BYU athletics," said Truman Hunt, Nu Skin president and chief executive officer. "We are pleased to be in a position to enhance our community and believe these improvements to LaVell Edwards Stadium demonstrate our commitment to the success of Cougar athletics."
