Army inks series with BYU

James Lang-USA TODAY Sports

Army and Brigham Young have agreed to a home-and-home football series, with the first game between the two independents slated for Sept. 19 at Michie Stadium as both schools piece together new schedules.

The second game in the series is scheduled for November 2032 at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo, Utah.

The two schools have never met in football and both are scrambling to fill schedules that were pretty much wiped out by the coronavirus pandemic. Army lost games against Bucknell, Princeton, Oklahoma, UMass, Connecticut, Eastern Michigan, Miami of Ohio, and Buffalo, while BYU lost eight games.

The Black Knights have yet to finalize their schedule, but they open the season Sept. 5 at Michie Stadium against Middle Tennessee State. BYU opens its season on Sept. 7 at Navy.
