BYU kicks off at 8:15 pm MT tonight, so you have all day to watch past and future BYU opponents. The MWC kicks off its season today, meaning we’ll get to see Boise State and San Diego State in action for the first time.

Here is how you can watch each of BYU’s 2020 opponents play on Saturday:

Houston (1-1) at Navy (3-2)

Kickoff: Saturday, Oct. 24 at 1:30 pm MT

TV: CBSSN

Spread: Houston -15

Two former BYU opponents square off in an intriguing matchup for BYU. Navy was blown out by Air Force and BYU, but they sit atop the AAC at 3-0 in the conference. Houston put up a good fight last week and looks like they could be a threat to finish close to the top in the AAC.

Georgia State (1-2) at Troy (3-1)

Kickoff: Saturday, Oct. 24 at 2:00 pm MT

TV: ESPNU

Spread: Troy -2.5

Troy’s lone loss this season was a September blowout in Provo. They’ll look to move to 2-0 in the Sun Belt as slight favorite over Georgia State.

Chattanooga at Western Kentucky (1-4)

Kickoff: Saturday, Oct. 24 at 2:00 pm MT

TV: ESPN3

Spread: WKU -14.5

After a 9-4 season last year, Western Kentucky is off to a disappointing start in 2020. They’ll look to get on track versus a FCS foe before coming to Provo next Saturday.

Utah State at Boise State

Kickoff: Saturday, Oct. 24 at 5:00 pm MT

TV: FS1

Spread: BSU -17

Both teams kick off their seasons on the blue turf where Boise State is more than a two-touchdown favorite. If the Broncos beat the Aggies tonight and Air Force next week, they could be ranked in the top 25 before the huge showdown versus BYU.

Louisiana Tech (3-2) at UTSA (3-3)

Kickoff: Saturday, Oct. 24 at 6:00 pm MT

TV: ESPNU

Spread: LT -2.5

Another game featuring two former BYU opponents. UTSA was more impressive in its matchup in Provo, but are slight home underdogs versus the Bulldogs. Louisiana Tech’s two losses were against ranked teams — #12 BYU and #22 Marshall.

UNLV at San Diego State

Kickoff: Saturday, Oct. 24 at 8:30 pm MT

TV: CBSSN

Spread: SDSU -14

SDSU, BYU’s final opponent of the season, begins what appears to be a very manageable schedule. The Aztecs should be favored in all 7 of its games prior to December 12 matchup in Provo.
