The University of Tennessee and Brigham Young University have agreed to a home and home series in 2019 and 2023. BYU will travel to Knoxville in 2019 and Tennessee will return in 2023.
Brett McMurphy with ESPN was the first to report and BYU has since confirmed.

This is a massive get for BYU as Tennessee is historically regarded as a top 10 program. Tennessee has won 13 SEC Championships and six national titles.

A trip to Tennessee adds to an already loaded 2019 season. BYU will face Utah, Tennessee, USC, and Washington in its first four games that season. Additionally, BYU will play Washington State and Boise State.
Well done Tom Holmoe, the Smokey Mountains makes for a great roadtrip for players and fans!
