In the Brigham Young University Football Vault: The History of the Cougars, author Duff Tittle recounts the story of BYU football from the hardscrabble days of the early 1890s when the sport was banned, through the rebirth of football on campus, to the lean decades from 1922 to 1971, to the glory days of "Air Edwards", to the new era of success under Bronco Mendenhall. This detailed "scrapbook" contains never-before-published photographs, artwork, and memorabilia drawn from BYU's athletic department and school archives. Tucked into dozens of pockets, fans will find reproductions of old game programs, historic tickets, postcards and photos. These fascinating replicas include an 1897 players list, a 1926 team photo, a 1967 Phil Odle card, a 1974 Knothole card, a 1984 LaVell Edwards coach of the year photo, a 1990 Ty Detmer Heisman Trophy promotional "Ty" and a 2004 Notre Dame game ticket. No Cougar fan should be without this "home archive" of BYU's illustrious football history.
