The Oregon Ducks will host the BYU Cougars in 2022, the two schools announced early Tuesday evening.
Oregon and BYU will square off at Autzen Stadium in Eugene on Sept. 10, 2022. The two schools have met a total of six times, with four of those contests taking place in Eugene.
The Oregon-BYU series is currently tied at 3 games apiece. In their last meeting in the 2006 Las Vegas Bowl, BYU beat Oregon 38-8.
Oregon now has their first non-conference matchup for the 2022 season and will look to schedule two more home games that season, per their release. In even years, the Ducks play four Pac-12 games at home and five on the road.
“This matchup fits our scheduling philosophy within the current landscape, which means facing top competition along with our Pac-12 opponents,” UO athletic director Rob Mullens said.
BYU now has four games scheduled for the 2022 season. In addition to the Oregon matchup, the Cougars are slated to host USF (Sept. 23) and travel to both Boise State (Oct. 8) and Stanford (Nov. 26).
“It’s a great opportunity to play an outstanding football team from the Pac 12,” said BYU director of athletics Tom Holmoe. “Oregon had an opening in its 2022 schedule and the circumstance was right for BYU. We hope to develop a long-term relationship with Oregon.”
