The BYU Cougars have added the Wagner Seahawks to their 2015 football schedule, The Kansas City Star has reported.
The matchup was discovered when the Star obtained a copy of the contract for the BYU-Missouri game set for next season at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City.
BYU moved a previously scheduled game against UNLV to the 2016 or 2017 season in order to schedule the Missouri game. BYU then gave up an Oct. 24 game vs. Idaho State so that UNLV could fill the void left by the Cougars.
In turn, the Cougars have added Wagner and will host them at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo on Oct. 24, 2015.
The Seahawks are a member of the Northeast Conference in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). They finished the 2014 season 7-4 overall and 5-1 in conference play.
BYU has now tentatively completed their 2015 football schedule, although it has yet to be officially announced by the school. The Cougars open the season at Nebraska on Saturday, Sept. 5.
Boise State visits Provo on Sept. 12 for BYU’s 2015 home-opener. Other 2015 home games include UConn, East Carolina, Cincinnati, Wagner, and Fresno State.
In addition to Nebraska, the Cougars have road trips scheduled at UCLA, Michigan, San Jose State, and Utah State and a neutral-site game vs. Missouri in Kansas City.
