The BYU Cougars and the Utah State Aggies have added games in 2021 and 2022 to their existing football series, both schools announced on Thursday.
BYU will travel to face Utah State at Romney Stadium in Logan on Friday, Oct. 1, 2021. The Cougars will then host the Aggies at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo on Friday, Sept. 30, 2022.
“There’s a lot of history and tradition in our longstanding football series with Utah State,” said BYU director of athletics Tom Holmoe. “I appreciated working with John Hartwell to further extend the series into the future. I have loved the in-state rivalry with USU as a player, coach and now as an administrator. I look forward to these future games.”
The two schools are also scheduled to meet this season in Provo (Oct. 5), in 2019 in Logan (Nov. 2), and in 2020 in Provo (Oct. 2).
BYU and Utah State met in Logan last season with the Aggies coming out on top 40-24. The two schools are also scheduled to meet on Nov. 28, 2015 and Sept. 29, 2017 in Logan and Nov. 26, 2016 and Oct. 5, 2018 in Provo.
The Cougars and Aggies have met a total of 84 times on the gridiron. BYU leads the series 48-36-3 and has won five of the last seven contests.
BYU now has 11 games tentatively scheduled for the 2021 season and eight in 2022. Opponents those seasons include Arizona, Utah, Arizona State, USF, Utah State, Boise State, Washington State, Virginia, Georgia Southern, USC, Baylor, Oregon, East Carolina, Liberty, and Stanford.
With the addition of BYU, Utah State has now completed their non-conference schedule in 2021. Other opponents that season include Washington State (Sept. 4) and New Mexico State (Nov. 6) on the road and North Dakota (Sept. 11) at home.
In 2022, Utah State is scheduled to play at Alabama to open the season on Sept. 3 and the Aggies will receive a $1,910,000 guarantee.
