While Brigham Young Academy played a few games between 1896 and 1900, BYU considers the 1922 season as the official beginning of its football program. On Oct. 7, 1922, Utah State traveled to Provo and BYU played its first game.

The Aggies pounded the fledgling Cougars 42-3.

BYU's second game was against arch-rival Utah, but Utah State can be proud of the fact that it was the first team to defeat the Cougars.

Article quote: "So, why did Edwards pick USU over BYU? Cows. “If I’d gone to the Y., I would have had to live at home, and my job would have been milking the cows," Edwards told BYUCougars.com. "I was sick of milking those two darned cows. I’d have gone to Utah to get away from ‘em. Well maybe not Utah, but I wanted to get away.”"

Now THAT is classic LaVell Edwards! Too funny!
