Linebacker Garrett England runs the ball while tight end Matt Bushman tries to pull him down at the BYU Cougars' first practice of the season in Provo on Thursday, July 27, 2017.

In Episode 290 of the Deseret News Rise & Shout Podcast, Matt and I preview the defense and special teams. Could this group of LBs be the best in school history? And are the CBs just as good and deep a group? We also talk about Taysom’s Lambeau Leap and emerging pass-catching targets for Tanner Mangum.
