The BYU Cougars have added the UTSA Roadrunners and the Texas State Bobcats to their 2020 football schedule, the school announced on Wednesday.
BYU will host UTSA at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo, Utah, on Saturday, Oct. 10, 2020. The game will mark the first-ever meeting between the two schools on the gridiron.
Two weeks later on Saturday, Oct. 24, 2020, Texas State will travel to take on BYU at LaVell Edwards Stadium. Texas State-BYU will also be a first-time contest.
“We are fortunate that UTSA and Texas State had open dates on their schedules which allowed them to travel to Provo,” said BYU Director of Athletics Tom Holmoe. “We look forward to hosting them in LaVell Edwards Stadium and are excited to play football this fall.”
The additions of UTSA, a member of Conference USA, and Texas State, a member of the Sun Belt Conference, gives the Cougars eight games on their revised 2020 football schedule.
BYU is scheduled to open the season at Navy on Monday, Sept. 7 (Labor Day). The Cougars are also scheduled to play at Army on Sept. 19 and host Troy on Sept. 26, Houston on Oct. 16, Western Kentucky on Oct. 31, and North Alabama on Nov. 21.
UTSA is now back to a full 12-game schedule with seven Conference USA opponents and five non-conference opponents. Texas State currently has 11 games scheduled, which include all eight originally scheduled Sun Belt opponents.
