BYU announced its season opener earlier today with a Labor Day matchup versus Navy, and received other welcome news with already scheduled opponents.
Both San Diego State and Utah State confirmed that BYU will remain part of their 2020 schedule. Utah State announced their season opener will be Friday, October 2 versus BYU, which could create some interesting dynamics during the game. BYU could play up to four games ahead of the the Utah State game, which could give BYU an advantage — if healthy — going into the game in Provo.
San Diego State AD JW Wicker said that BYU will be one of the Aztecs two non-conference opponents.

SDSU is still finalizing its 2nd non-conference opponent.
The MWC will not begin play until September 26, so the game cannot come before then. The game is currently scheduled for November 14 in Provo.
Boise State has not officially said anything about BYU, but that game is still likely to happen as well. BSU had to cancel their matchup versus Georgia Southern to meet the 2-game MWC non-conference requirement. That game is scheduled for November 6 at Boise State.
Below is BYU’s current schedule. BYU said in the Navy press release today that they will announce other games as they are finalized.
September 7 – at Navy
October 2 – Utah State
October 16– Houston
October 24 – at Northern Illinois
November 6 – at Boise State
November 14 – San Diego State
November 21 – North Alabama
