One of the greatest walk-on college football players was Arkansas offensive lineman Brandon Burlsworth. He eventually earned a scholarship and was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts. Burlsworth died in a car crash before he played a down in the NFL. Brandon's brother, Marty, explains how they still honor Brandon today through the Burlsworth Foundation and Burlsworth Trophy. Lauren and Cleon mention some of their favorite BYU football walk-ons. And with Arkansas playing BYU for the first time, the duo also chat about which SEC teams they'd like the Cougars to face in the future, along with other schools they want BYU to play for the first time.
