Last October, the BYU Cougars and the Wisconsin Badgers announced a home-and-home football series for 2017 in Provo and 2018 in Madison.
Earlier today, Wisconsin revealed a handful of future games and updated their future football schedules through 2017. However, one 2017 game was missing from their official release — the game at BYU.
Wisconsin officials told us, and then announced on Twitter, that the 2017 game at BYU has been moved to the 2019 season.
Got some questions about #Badgers' series w/BYU on future schedules. Games will be played 2018 (in Madison) & 2019 (in Provo)

An exact date for the 2019 game in Provo has yet to be determined, but it will likely be Sept. 7 or Sept. 21 based on the Big Ten’s scheduling pattern.
The 2017 game in Provo was previously slated for Sept. 2, while an exact date for the 2018 game was undetermined. The 2018 game will still be played in Madison, with likely dates falling between Sept. 8 and Sept. 22.
BYU is now down to six games on their 2017 schedule and up to six in 2019. In 2017, the Cougars are set to host Utah, California, Boise State, and San Jose State and travel to Fresno State and East Carolina.
The 2019 season will see BYU hosting USC, Nevada, Boise State, and Wisconsin and traveling to Virginia and Washington State.
Wisconsin, which will begin playing a three-game non-conference schedule in 2016, has two games set for 2017 (FAU, at USF) and three for 2019 (Washington, Virginia Tech, at BYU).
BYU (1-1) and Wisconsin (2-1) are set to meet this season in Madison on Nov. 9.
