Tom Holmoe announced BYU\'s football schedule.

Monday was a busy day for BYU's athletic department.

Athletic director Tom Holmoe unveiled the 2012 football schedule Monday night, which includes games against Washington State, Utah, Boise State, Georgia Tech and Notre Dame.

The Cougars also announced that LaVell Edwards Stadium will be receiving new scoreboards for next season.

Former BYU basketball player and KSL color analyst Mark Durrant explains why basketball coach Dave Rose has been so successful at BYU.

"Coach Rose puts an exciting, fast-paced, offensive-minded team on the floor," Durrant writes. "BYU is always near the top of the country in points per game. This approach makes the game more entertaining to watch for fans and more fun to play in for players. A fast-paced offensive style requires a relinquishment of a certain amount of control as well as great trust in your players to make correct decisions."

Former BYU women's basketball star Erin Thorn has signed with the Minnesota Lynx of the WNBA.

Current BYU women's star Jennifer Hamson has received a national honor.
