2019 Wisconsin at BYU game moved to 2017 season

By Kevin Kelley -

The 2019 Wisconsin Badgers at BYU Cougars football game has been moved to the 2017 season, BYU announced today.

As indicated above, Wisconsin will now visit BYU at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo on Sept. 16, 2017. The game will now be the first of a home-and-home that concludes in Madison on Sept. 15, 2018.

This is the second time the 2017 game has moved. Back in 2013, the game was moved to the 2019 season.

The move back to 2017 strengthens BYU’s home schedule. Other opponents slated to visit Provo include Utah, Boise State, San Jose State, and UMass. BYU opens the season vs. LSU in Houston and later travels to Utah State, Mississippi State, East Carolina, Fresno State, UNLV, and Hawaii.

Wisconsin’s schedule for the 2017 season is complete, including Big Ten Conference games. Other non-conference games for the Badgers include Utah State and Florida Atlantic, both in Madison.

Interestingly enough–the Wisconsin 2017 schedule previously did not conform to the B1G’s scheduling guidelines that start in 2016 (1 OOC P5 game). Now after this change, it does. Could that be what drove the changes?
