LaVell Edwards Stadium Cougar
The bronze cougar was placed just outside the southwest gates of Cougar Stadium in 1974, just in time to witness BYU take on Utah State University. It was cast in Italy and sponsored by the classes of 1965 and 1969. Avard Fairbanks, who sculpted a handful of different pieces on campus, and his son, Justin, were the artists for the cougar. Cougar Stadium was renamed as LaVell Edwards Stadium in 2000.
