BYU Doesn’t Play On Sunday, What If LSU vs BYU Game Goes Past Midnight?
LSU kicks off the football season against BYU in Houston on September 2nd, at 8:30 central time. What if the game continues past midnight?
BYU doesn't play sports on Sundays due to their affiliation with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
At SEC media day yesterday, Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron was asked what would happen if the game lasted into Sunday. After all, college football games on national TV often last over three and a half hours.
"I think that that will be held up to the referees. I will let them make that decision," Orgeron answered.
Yahoo Sports e-mailed BYU for a statement. School spokesman Brett Pyne answered with the following:
“Yes, the game would be finished if it pushed late. A game involving BYU that starts on Saturday will be played to its completion if it happens to extend past midnight.”
There you have it. For BYU, it can't start on Sunday, but it can end on Sunday.
