I heard that too. That it would be there and it is just moving up a scheduled game from 2024 I think. I hope it happens. It should be a good game.

Options for additional games.
I say go for:

Oct 2 - Temple or Tulane
(Friday night before General Conference - "Temple" has a nice ring to it for that spot)

Nov 7 - @UCF in Orlando
(hopefully it's a new 2-game series, not just moving the '24 game to this year)

Nov 28 - Marshall
(pay them to play us in Provo only)

Dec 5 - @Georgia South
(move the '21 game to this year. We should never have scheduled this game to begin with! So, get this game out of the way during the weird COVID season....AND, this move frees up a week next year to make some schedule moves to accommodate postponed games from this year.)

That would give us 12 games, including 8 games in Provo including somewhat attractive home games against Houston, Temple and Marshall. ESPN will pick up those games for sure. With 8 games in Provo, you allow many season ticket holders to still attend 4 or 5 home games, even with the reduced seating capacity.

I like 8 home games and allowing more fans to attend. I highly doubt we will have cancelled games moved to next year. That schedule is already set. It will take years to find slots for those games.

Could add games as season progresses. Some of the conferences have left dates open at end of the season in order for the possibility of make up games from those postponed. Some teams MIGHT chose to play a non-conference game with us that their opponent chooses not to make up.
