The BYU Cougars and the UNLV Rebels have rescheduled their 2015 game to 2017, according to UNLV’s 2015 football media guide.
BYU and UNLV originally signed a contract for a home-and-home football series to be played in 2014 and 2015. The first game, which BYU won 42-23, was played last season on Nov. 15, 2014 in Provo.
The second game of the series was scheduled for Nov. 14, 2015 in Las Vegas, but was postponed late last year to either 2016 or 2017 to allow BYU to play Missouri in Kansas City on the same date.
Per UNLV’s media guide that was recently released (page 81), BYU will play at UNLV on Nov. 11, 2017. That gives the Cougars 11 games on their 2017 football schedule. BYU now only needs one more opponent, but could schedule two because they play at Hawaii that season.
BYU opens the 2017 season against LSU at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. The following week, the Cougars host in-state rival Utah in Provo.
Other home games in 2017 for BYU include Boise State, San Jose State, and UMass. Road games for the Cougars include Utah State, Mississippi State, East Carolina, Fresno State, UNLV, and Hawaii.
UNLV now has three non-conference games set for 2017. The Rebels also visit Idaho on Sept. 9 and Ohio State on Sept. 23.
