Provo • While there is no Holy War or battle for the Wagon Wheel this season, BYU recovered another one of its biggest rivals for the 2020 season.
The Cougars will face Boise State Nov. 7 at Albertsons Stadium.
Both programs were originally set up play on Nov. 7 as part of a 10-year scheduling agreement, but the game was canceled when the Mountain West Conference opted to postpone its 2020 season on Aug. 10.
“The annual game between BYU and Boise State has become a much-anticipated regional rivalry between two universities with great football traditions,” said BYU Director of Athletics Tom Holmoe. “We are pleased the Mountain West Conference determined to play football in 2020 and worked with Boise State to allow this previously scheduled non-conference game to be played.”
The Broncos finished the 2019 season with a 12-2 record and won the Mountain West Conference title. Boise State’s sole losses came at BYU and to Washington in the Las Vegas Bowl.
With the rivalry game back on, BYU now has a nine-game schedule for 2020.
