The BYU Cougars have officially announced their 2015 football schedule and their bowl tie-ins for both the 2015 and 2019 seasons.
“This is a very unique schedule. It includes road games at three of the more storied college football stadiums in the country,” said BYU Director of Athletics Tom Holmoe. “We enjoy playing in different regions of the country and traveling to places we’ve never been. We also like bringing teams to Edwards Stadium that have never played in Provo. This schedule is full of these types of games. It should be an exciting year for our football program and our fans.”
BYU opens the 2015 season at the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Sept. 5. The following week, the Cougars entertain Boise State in their home-opener at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo on Sept. 12 (ESPN or ESPN2).
The Cougars then embark on road trip at two consecutive historic programs — at UCLA on Sept. 19 and at Michigan on Sept. 26.
BYU then hosts four consecutive opponents in Provo, beginning with the UConn Huskies on Friday, Oct. 2 (10:15pm ET, ESPN or ESPN2). The UConn Matchup is followed by East Carolina (Oct. 10), Cincinnati (Friday, Oct. 16, 8pm ET, ESPN), and Wagner (Oct. 24, 3pm ET, BYUtv).
After an open date, BYU travels to face San Jose State in another Friday night matchup (Nov. 6, 11:30pm ET, CBSSN). The following week on Nov. 14, BYU and Missouri meet at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, MO.
The Cougars close the 2015 season with a home game against Fresno State on Nov. 21 and a trip to in-state rival Utah State on Nov. 28 (3:30pm ET, CBSSN).
BYU also announced today their bowl tie-in for the 2015 season. The Cougars will play in either the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl or the Hawaii Bowl. Whichever of those two they don’t play in this season, they will play in that bowl after the 2019 season.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to participate in these two bowl games,” said Holmoe. “We look forward to returning to Las Vegas and Honolulu. We are fortunate to have a large fan base in both areas and it will be great to renew the many longtime friendships we’ve enjoyed in these two cities.”
