In a radio interview on 1280 The Zone, BYU Athletic Director Tom Holmoe was asked about the numerous future schedule rumors for the Cougars. Holmoe stated that the “internet rumors are mainly wrong.”
Holmoe was on The Gordon Monson show and was asked about BYU’s future schedules due to the many rumors on the Internet. Holmoe had the following to say regarding their schedules:
“Internet rumors are mainly wrong. I mean there’s a lot of them and I don’t read them but people bring them to my attention…and, uh, I think that some of them are wildly wrong…and if there’s enough people guessing some of them are gonna be right. But there’s so many out there that are wrong.”
“The process is, I have this paper in front of me right now and we have games scheduled out through 2020. Just a few in the later years, but through 2014 we’re getting very close to, you know, 3/4 of the way full on some of those…15, 16, 17 we’re talking every day right now with teams trying to fill those up.”
“Some teams that you talk to want to play you two-for-one, and it’s not in our best interest to play all BCS teams two-for-one.”

Last week we posted some scheduling rumors that had been sent to us. These rumors have hit many other sites as well. But during the radio interview, the only one shot down by Holmoe was Nebraska. Regarding the Cornhuskers, Holmoe said “…we are currently not in discussions with Nebraska.”
But his line that the rumors are “mainly wrong” could mean that some of the opponents are correct.
Stay tuned as BYU will likely make some official announcements before too long. Holmoe said they had opponents scheduled out to 2020, but a home game against Georgia Tech in 2017 is the latest we have on record.
However, Holmoe could have been referring to games against Hawaii. The Cougars and Warriors recently signed an agreement to play almost every year through 2020.
