PROVO, Utah – The BYU football season is upon us as the first game week of the season has arrived. When a new season arrives, it means it’s time for a weekly depth chart.

BYU released its week one depth chart against Arizona on Monday.

BYU Football Depth Chart – Arizona Week

“Everybody on our depth chart is cleared and ready to play,” BYU head coach Kalani Sitake in his weekly press conference. “Whether you’re dealing with academics or injury, that’s part of college football. That’s part of getting a depth chart ready, getting a program ready. We’ve been pretty fortunate with only one setback as far as a season-ending injury in this fall camp. We’ve got guys get banged up because we run a physical program with a lot of 11-on-11 football, so we’re gonna have some guys that are banged up. But everybody on the depth chart is expected to participate and contribute to the game.”
