BYU and Arizona State announced Thursday a home-and-home football series for the 2020 and 2021 seasons.
The first game will be played at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Ariz., on Sept. 19, 2020. Game two will be played at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo on Sept. 18, 2021.
"BYU-ASU is a great regional matchup that dates back to the 1930s," Tom Holmoe, BYU director of athletics, said in a press release. "As charter members of the Western Athletic Conference, we’ve enjoyed a rich football rivalry. We look forward to playing in Tempe again, where we have a lot of Cougar fans and alumni. It will also be exciting to have ASU back in Provo."
Kickoff times and TV coverage for the games will be announced later.
The former WAC rivals have played 27 times, with the Sun Devils owning a 20-7 series edge. The last time these two teams played a series, in 1997 and '98, the Cougars won both games. In 1997, BYU topped Arizona State 13-10 in Tempe; the Cougars won 26-6 the next season.
"This football series with Brigham Young University renews one of our oldest and most interesting rivalries,” said Ray Anderson, Arizona State vice president for university athletics, in a press release. “These two institutions and the communities they represent enjoy a long, rich history and a lot of common bonds between them. Also, it fulfills a need for us to schedule home/home series with institutions that are located in the Western portion of the United States.”
