BYU and Utah: The Rivalry Continues
(KUTV) BYU and Utah football fans have more rivalry games to look forward to in the coming years.
While they are still waiting for PAC-12 approval, Utah Athletic Director Chris Hill announced Tuesday that BYU and Utah have added a two game set, including one which will be played as the final game of the season--just like the good old days!
Right now, the Utes are set to go to Provo on September 21st this season, then the rivalry takes a two year break. When that was first announced a year ago, many fans were outraged. The break allowed for scheduling non-league teams, such as Michigan--the Wolverines are in Salt Lake City in 2015.
What has been agreed upon so far is:
-The Utes in Provo this season.
-The Cougars will come to SLC September 10th 2016.
-The Utes will go to Provo in September of 2017.
-The final game of this set has BYU at Rice Eccles Stadium as the regular season closure in 2018.
