The NC State Wolfpack have canceled their future football series with the BYU Cougars, FBSchedules.com has learned.
NC State and BYU originally agreed to a home-and-home football series that was to be played during the 2024 and 2030 seasons. The games were scheduled for 2024 in Raleigh, N.C., and 2030 in Provo, Utah.
The Wolfpack and Cougars have never squared off on the field.
Both future NC State-BYU football games are not listed in NC State’s 2022 football media guide, and NC State’s sports information department confirmed that the games are “no longer on our schedule.”
The game contract did include a clause that if either team joined a conference or switched conferences, the series could be canceled without penalty
BYU is currently a Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) Independent. During the latest wave of conference realignment in fall 2021, BYU was accepted into the Big 12 Conference.
As a result of the move, BYU has begun the process to trim down its future Independent football schedules, some of which had 12 games on the slate. Beginning in 2023, BYU will need only three non-conference games per season.
