Set your calendars now and start getting ready for a 2:30 PM kickoff on October 16, 2021 for BYU’s first game against a Big 12 opponent as part of the New Big 12 beginning ... whenever that happens. Here’s the full Big 12 slate for that day:
As you can see, we are set for either ESPN or ESPN2, probably depending on how the games go between now and then, particularly our game against WVU this Saturday at 11 AM. BYU is now ranked #10 in the country, so their side of this thing is pretty well known, but if Baylor can beat WVU to get to 5-1, there’s a chance we might climb back into the rankings and make this a ranked-vs-ranked matchup. There isn’t a clear contender for the ESPN slot at that time, but you never know how the Worldwide Leader decides these things.
Regardless, start buying your tickets and making your plans now for October 16 against the BYU Cougars!
