BYU-Boise State football game moved to Friday, Oct. 24

No fewer than five BYU football games this fall will be played on non-Saturdays with the announcement Thursday morning that BYU’s October game at Boise State has been moved to Friday, Oct. 24.

The game will kick off at 7 p.m. MT and will be televised by ESPN or ESPN2. It was originally scheduled to be played on Saturday, Oct. 25.

The Cougars’ other non-Saturday games:

* Friday, Aug. 29 at Connecticut

* Thursday, Sept. 11 vs. Houston in Provo

* Friday, Oct. 3 vs. Utah State in Provo

* Thursday, Oct. 9 at Central Florida

BYU defeated Boise State 37-20 last year to record its first win in the series that began in 2003-2004 and was revived in 2012. Boise State leads the series 3-1.

Four BYU games in 2014, to date, will be nationally televised by ESPN or ESPN2. The others are at Connecticut, Houston, and at Central Florida.
