Kickoff time and TV plans announced for BYU versus Boise State

BYU will be looking to breakthrough on the blue turf

NCAA Football: Boise State at Brigham Young Chris Nicoll-USA TODAY Sports

Another year, another late kickoff with Boise State.

BYU announced that their Saturday, November 3 matchup at Boise State will kickoff at 8:15 MDT on ESPN2. This is the first time since the two schools began their series in 2012 that the game will be played in November.

The Broncos are currently 5-2 and coming off a 56-28 victory at home versus Colorado State. After putting up over 56 points in each of their first two games of the year, Boise State has come back to earth a bit and haven’t looked quite as dominant as they did early in the season. Following a 44-21 loss at Oklahoma State, they lost on the blue turf to San Diego State and had a narrow 4-point win at Nevada.

They travel this week to Air Force (3-4) prior to the matchup with BYU. The Cougars play a tough Northern Illinois team before looking to get their first ever win on the blue turf.

To add an extra layer to the game, BYU starting QB Zach Wilson was a Boise State commit before de-committing from the Broncos and signing with BYU. If things hold, Boise State will be Wilson’s first career road start.
