BYU and Utah State announced today that the contract for the current football series has been extended by two years. The extended contract will now consist of five games over the next five years. The Cougars will host games in 2014, 2016, and 2018 while the Aggies will host in 2015 and 2017. The games played in 2017 and 2018 will be played on Friday nights in late September and early October.
The Cougars and Aggies have met 83 times and with the BYU win earlier this year, the Cougars hold a 46-34-3 advantage. The only team that has played more games against BYU is the University of Utah. The Utah State football team is in its first year as a member of the Mountain West Conference. The Aggies have already made noise in the conference as they can secure first place in the Mountain Division and a trip in the first ever Mountain West Conference title game with a win over Wyoming this weekend.
The next scheduled game between the two schools is scheduled for October 3rd, 2014 at Lavell Edwards Stadium.
