Great schedule. They have Pac-12, Big 12, SEC, ACC (Notre Dame), and some good G5’s.

And the BYU Fan Joke going around is: “The 2022 Schedule will be much harder in Autonomous 5 Games because we don’t have 5 Pac12 Opponents this Year”.

Seeing an SEC team on the road for OOC games is almost as rare as not seeing a red-winged black bird during the Summer. Not sure how it happened, but I’m here for it.
