Throughout the years, BYU has set its fair share of world records. Not all of them still stand, but here's three of our favorites:
  1. Longest banana split.
    B1354022 424d 4b8e b3e2 fef8e236ac0e
    Built in 1972, it took 280 gallons of ice cream and 2,400 bananas to make the 1,573 foot creation. Have no fear: the students are it in 15 minutes.
  2. Biggest water balloon fight.
    86a2643e 79c0 4012 b1cb 295486f625d3
    3,927 students. 120,021 weather balloons. Six minutes of water filled mayhem. 2010 was a good year to be a Cougar.
  3. Largest cake in the world.
    6f352d13 8d10 49bf 9f8f 147f715cd3c1
    In 1968, homecoming inspired students to create a six ton cake, setting a world record. Five feet high, six feet wide, and forty feet long, all distributed to fans at the BYU Football game.
