BYU, Utah State announce two-game extension to football series

PROVO, Utah (February 19, 2015) — Brigham Young University and Utah State University today announced the schools have signed a contract that will add two additional games to the current football series, extending the series through 2020.
 
The two games will be played at Utah State on Oct. 4, 2019 and at BYU on Oct. 2, 2020—both on Friday night. The in-state rivals are now scheduled to meet at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo in 2016, 2018 and 2020 and at Romney Stadium in Logan in 2015, 2017 and 2019. Gametimes and broadcast plans will be announced at a future date.
 
“I believe it’s important to continue this longstanding football series with Utah State. There is a lot of history and tradition between the two universities and the recent games have been very competitive,” said BYU director of athletics Tom Holmoe. “Scott Barnes has done an outstanding job at USU, and the Aggies have gained strength in all areas of their football program. I've loved the in-state rivalry with USU as a player, coach and administrator and look forward to these future games.”
 
The 2014 game at LaVell Edwards Stadium was the 84th meeting between the two schools in a series that dates back to 1922. BYU leads the overall series 46-35-3. Only the University of Utah has played more games (89) against BYU than Utah State.
