Edwards. Located in Provo, Utah, LaVell Edwards Stadium is the home football stadium of the Brigham Young University Cougars

for many exciting events over the years. You won't want to miss a single moment of the excitement when your Cougars take the

more than 500,000 people. Provo was founded back in 1849 and was incorporated the following year. Named for Etienne Provost,
this city's motto is "Welcome Home." It's clear by the motto the kind of feel that this community has worked to establish
