BYU Football: Cougars finalize 2012 schedule

First Published Feb 13 2012 06:54 pm • Last Updated Feb 14 2012 12:05 pm

Provo • Coach Bronco Mendenhall has said BYU’s 2013 football schedule will be the most difficult in school history, but the 2012 schedule — officially released Monday night by the school — is not bad, either.

Games against Notre Dame, Boise State, Utah and Georgia Tech — all on the road — highlight the 2012 docket. The Cougars will play host to Oregon State and Washington State of the Pac-12 at home.

Once again, the last month of the Cougars’ schedule will be considerably weaker than the first two months.

In November, for instance, the Cougars have a bye on Nov. 3, then play host to Idaho of the Western Athletic Conference on Nov. 10. They travel to San Jose State and New Mexico State of the WAC on back-to-back weekends, playing at SJSU on Nov. 17 and at NMSU on Nov. 24.

The Cougars open on Sept. 1 against Washington State, which will be coached by BYU alumnus Mike Leach, who is entering his first season as WSU’s head coach.

The Cougars will play at rival Utah on Sept. 15 and will follow that with a trip to Boise, Idaho, to meet the nationally prominent Broncos on Sept. 22. That’s the first of 12 contests between BYU and Boise State scheduled through the 2023 season.

Hawaii visits BYU on Sept. 29, followed by instate rival Utah State on Oct. 5 and Oregon State on Oct. 13.

The Cougars are at Notre Dame on Oct. 20, then make another trip east on Oct. 27 for a showdown with Georgia Tech.

The school said additional details, including broadcast plans and game times, will be released at a later date.
