TULSA, Okla. (AP) _ Today's Tulsa BYU game will be like a homecoming for TU coach Steve Kragthorpe.

Kragthorpe spent much of his childhood in Provo, Utah, as his father spent ten years on LaVell Edwards' staff at BYU.

His 93-year-old grandmother lives 45 minutes away in Salt Lake City and plans to attend the game and BYU coach Bronco Mendenhall played for Kragthorpe's father and was an assistant with Kragthorpe at Northern Arizona.

But Kragthorpe plays down any nostalgia and says this is a business trip for him and he's focussed on winning the football game.

Kickoff is set for 3pm.
