BYU will face teams from the Atlantic Coast, Pacific-12, Mountain West, Western Athletic and Big Sky conferences.
Five of BYU's first seven games are at home, and the Cougars have only one home game after Oct. 13 (Idaho on Nov. 10, which follows a bye week).
BYU will leave the state of Utah only once through mid-October. The Cougars' first game outside the Mountain Time Zone will be at Notre Dame.
BYU will play Weber State for the first time since 1979.
BYU has just one Friday night game on the schedule (Oct. 5 at home against Utah State). Holmoe said there's a chance one other game could be moved to a Friday night.
Should BYU be bowl-eligible, it is contracted to play in the Poinsettia Bowl in San Diego on Dec. 20.
Additional details including broadcast plans, game times and ticket information will be released at a later date.
