BYU Football appears to have another game on its 2020 schedule.

Sal Interdonato of the Times Herald-Record is reporting that BYU will play at Army September 19. Army is a fellow independent and has never played BYU before.

Army is coming off a 5-8 season and like BYU has been scrambling to find opponents. Details of a potential return game have not been announced, but this would likely be part of a home-and-home series with the Black Knights.

Although Army is a solid matchup for BYU — since BYU just needs teams at this point — 9/19 is a bit of a disappointment. The 19th seemed like the most likely day for BYU to get a Power 5 opponent like Notre Dame, Clemson, Florida State or another ACC team. BYU could still get a P5 team, but odds are looking slimmer at this point.

With the addition of Army, BYU would have five games on the schedule. Look for BYU to try to schedule 10 games.

9/7 - at Navy

9/19 - at Army

9/26 - vs Troy

10/16 - vs Houston

11/21 - vs North Alabama
