The Utah Utes and the Fresno State Bulldogs have scheduled a home-and-home football series for 2014 and 2015.
Utah will host the first game of the series at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City on Sept. 6, 2014. The second and final game will be played at Bulldog Stadium in Fresno on Sept. 19, 2015.
Utah and Fresno State have met nine times since 1980, with the last matchup occurring in the 1999 Las Vegas Bowl. The Utes won that game 17-16 to take a 5-4 lead in the series.
The addition of Fresno State completes both the 2014 and 2015 non-conference schedules for Utah. In 2014, Utah hosts Idaho State (Aug. 28) and Fresno State (Sept. 6) and travels to Michigan (Sept. 20). In 2015, the Utes host Michigan (Sept. 3) and Utah State (Sept. 12) before traveling to Fresno State (Sept. 19).
Fresno State’s 2014 non-conference schedule also appears to be complete. The Bulldogs travel to USC (Aug. 30) and Utah (Sept. 6) and then host Nebraska (Sept. 13) and Idaho (date TBA). For the 2015 season, the only game besides Utah that is currently scheduled is at Ole Miss. That game was previously listed as Sept. 19, but Utah now occupies that date.
