BYU receiver Puka Nacua is interviewed during football media day in Provo on Wednesday, June 22, 2022. Nacua is still salty about the way the Cougars’ season ended — a bowl loss against UAB. “We didn’t show up and play our best football, and that still bugs us,” Nacua said.

Another BYU football media day came and went Wednesday, the last for the Cougars leading up to their final year of independence.
There was no major announcement, no brash predictions of how their final season before entering the Big 12 will go. Nothing of the sort. As media days go, it was rather bland and vanilla.
But one theme did emerge when the morning television show on the state of the program concluded and the coaches and players began talking individually to media members. In short, the Cougars said they can’t afford to rest on their laurels, after back-to-back 10-win seasons and a two-year record of 21-4.
“One of the biggest things is bouncing back after last year’s bowl game. We kinda fell asleep a little bit. It wasn’t a great way to end the season. We are carrying that forward as motivation.” — BYU receiver Gunner Romney
