Amazing that Army gets 7 home games this year, BYU may end up with as many as 3.

Per Jay Drew: "The source said Army will return the game in Provo at a later date yet to be determined."

Not official yet, but its sounding like Texas State may be playing in Provo in October.


Nothing official, but hearing two potential replacement opponents for #TXST football are #BostonCollege and #BYU. Not sure on date or locations but BC has Sept. 26 open and BYU has Oct. 3 available. Both dates opened up for TXST after Ohio and NMST canceled. Again, not official.
Hearing #TXST-#BYU is a done deal. Should be a pay game for the Bobcats. All I know for now.

I knew building a schedule from scratch would be difficult, but it has ended up harder than I thought it would be. I thought some P5 teams would jump at the chance to be the prime time showcase on ESPN but that hasn't been the case at all. Props to Holmoe for working tirelessly.

Stewart Mandel is saying that BYU's 6th home game is North Texas.


Slowly but surely, BYU, which was down to two original opponents, is building a schedule.

At Navy (Labor Day, ESPN)
At Army (9/19, 3:30 CBS)
Troy
North Texas
Texas State
UTSA
Houston
North Alabama

It sounds like the P5 schools were only interested in having road teams come to their home.

Not perfect, but I'd rather BYU play in the fall rather than hope there are games in the spring.
