The Sports BLT looking for the best BYU, Cal rugby fans at Varsity Cup on Saturday


SANDY — The Sports BLT will be at Rio Tinto Stadium on Saturday looking for the best BYU and Cal rugby fans just before the Varsity Cup final.

Are you one of them? Do you embarrass your friends and family because of your pure, unadulterated fanaticism?

Then I want to talk to you!

It was my pleasure to talk to BYU and Utah rugby fans at the Wasatch Cup, and those fans did not disappoint. In fact, it was standing room only at BYU’s South Field.

And I expect an electric atmosphere at the Varsity Cup.

I will be wandering the tailgates at the northwest parking lot starting at 11 a.m. MDT sporting my black Deseret News National Edition T-shirt. I will be talking to fans, and the best interviews will be featured right here on the Sports BLT.

See you at Rio Tinto Stadium!
