BYU is not done adding games and is expected to have a 10-12 game schedule. The press release stated “kickoff times and broadcast plans will be announced at a later date, as will additional games as they are finalized.” One rumor that has picked up steam is that BYU will play UCF November 7. UCF is ranked #21 in the preseason AP Poll. A game versus UCF and one more against a solid AAC team would put some more juice into BYU’s schedule and give them a prominent opponent that could carry wait if BYU were in a position for a NY6 bowl at year’s end.
Current open dates on BYU’s schedule are 9/12 (which will likely be a bye since BYU is playing 9/7), 10/2 or 10/3 (10/3 is General Conference weekend), 11/7, 11/14, 11/28, and 12/5.
BYU’s official 8-game schedule is below.
- Sept. 7 - at Navy
- Sept. 19 - at Army
- Sept. 26 - vs. Troy
- Oct. 10 - vs UTSA
- Oct. 16 - vs. Houston
