The 41-20 defeat was probably not what the near 10,000 Cougar fans that made the trip to Eugene expected to see. But, despite the blowout loss, BYU fans still showed their loyalty after the final horn went off.

As BYU football players and coaches were walking off the field, Cougar fans were cheering them on. BYU fans were gathered near BYU’s locker room to keep the team’s spirits high despite the defeat.

#BYU fans are indeed loyal! Win or lose they are there for the team and excited to see them, even we’ll after the game has ended.#BYUFootball l @kslsports pic.twitter.com/GWSXmR6kGs

One of the few benefits of BYU’s Independent era has been the Cougars’ ability to showcase the team in parts of the country that haven’t seen BYU in years. The last time BYU played in Eugene was in 1990. Fans in the Pacific Northwest showed out; even though they didn’t have much to cheer about, they still appeared grateful to see their favorite team.

BYU’s next road game will be against Notre Dame in Las Vegas on October 8, while the next game on the schedule is a home tilt against Wyoming on September 24.
