BYU and Utah State has changed the scheduling agreement, including adding another game to the three-game series.

Under the new contract, the Cougars and Aggies will play a home and home series during the next four years, replacing the current deal that had USU hosting BYU once and playing in Provo twice.

Utah State will host BYU on Oct. 4, a Friday, and on Nov. 28, 2015, on Merlin Olsen Field at Romney Stadium. In turn, BYU will host USU on Friday, Oct. 3, 2014, and Nov. 26, 2016.

"This is an important scheduling adjustment because it begins a home and home series, which has been our goal, and fills a hole in our home schedule in 2015," said USU athletic director Scott Barnes. "We are excited to keep this historic in-state rivalry going and I appreciate working with BYU athletics director Tom Holmoe to get this done now."

Utah State and BYU have played each other 82 times with the Cougars holding a 45-34-3 edge.

"I appreciate the working relationship I have with Scott Barnes at Utah State," said Holmoe. "We needed to make some adjustments to our 2014 and 2015 football schedules and in the process were able to add an additional game to the series. Scott has done an outstanding job at USU and is great to work with. We value the longstanding in-state rivalry and look forward to the next four games with Utah State."
