This demonstrates being independent isn't dead and that football not only pays the bills but will make more money and pay more in the future.


This would be a huge support in going Independent. Having an annual meeting with Texas could be a pivotal move to get BYU to an Independent Status, or even into the Big 12 eventually. Lets get this ball rolling.


Good. Texas will get a chance to beat them really bad three times and not just once. Texas just got the number 1 running back in the nation and he will run all over BYU next season. Cant wait for the game in 2011.


Looking to make it 5-0 vs. Texas now!

Combined score of these three games 122 to 34


"Having an annual meeting with Texas"

Hold up there, Sparky! It isn't an "annual" meeting with Texas. It is three games. There aren't that many "annual" series outside of conferences, except in-state rivalries, service academies and Notre Dame with a few schools.

This is what BYU would want to do if they are going to try and leave the conference. I think they should go independent and that Utah should walk a way from the rivalry game. Woot to the PAC 12!


Texas is always looking for the tune up game befoe it starts its real season against BCS programs. I've also heard Texas is close to signing up to a series against SW Missouri St.


@warthog - That is what Oklahoma thought last year.


@Hedgehog-Hey I'm a Utah fan too, but you gotta admit that we're just a tune up for Pitt. BYU is certainly just a tune up for Texas, but it won't be pretty opening up with Pitt.


I am an Orangeblood, and very much look forward to the game next September. I think the last time these two teams met was in late 80s, if I am wrong I am sure someone will correct me. It would be a huge win for the BYU program, but I doubt it will happen. But then, I never thought BYU would beat OU. And I was at a UT game when the announcement came in, that OU lost. Longhorn fans very much appreciate anyone who beats OU, and when your fans come to Austin next year, you can have soem free sodas as a thank you for beating OU. We will be enjoying cold long necks. Hooke em Horns, it will be some great games.

I'm suprised that Texas would want a series with a team that maybe dropping to the WCC.


BYU in the WCC.... only in my wildest dreams could I have dreamed this...

Oh, it's soooo goood to be a Ute!!!!


I like it, BYU need to continue to schedule games against the likes of Texas and Oklahoma. If BYU can start drawing series with big 12 schools, this could propel a move to the big 12 eventually. If not at worst we are independent and dont have to worry about sharing revenue with a conference if we bust into the BCS. One thing is for sure, BYU isnt afraid to schedule or play anyone and I like that kind of mentality.


Texas supporters are promoting this as an opportunity to get international exposure on BYU TV, something that they have been trying to copy for the past several months. Only the Texas Longhorns are smart enough to see that BYU has seized on the wave of the future with a proprietary tv channel. If their league decides to go back to a conference title game, look for BYU to join them.

hedge, being a troll must make life interesting.

Texas is COMING to Provo to play BYU if this announcement is correct. That means something. Notre Dame has played in Provo. Miami has too back when they were a top program. BYU has been able to schedule big name schools to play in Provo in the past, and will be able to in the future.

While I was excited for the Utes to schedule ND, the fact that they couldn't get a game in RES in return was troubling. When Utah can bring in big non-conference games, then you may have something to stand on. For the time being, be happy the Utes got into a reasonable league.


Why does it seem the same pathetic Utah fans make comments about BYU? Go find your own articles!


Isn't it interesting to see a comment of class from a Texas fan, and a welcome to their field, and the comparison with Ute fans (Hog and Rock, et.al.). Texas has class. BYU has class. It would be great to establish some home and home series with some of the great teams across the country.

Maybe BYU will lose a few, but BYU will also beat a few like OU, Miami, Washington, UCLA, and the list goes on. What a great time to be a Cougar fan!!


Look at all the Utes swarming on Cougar boards - kinda creepy.


Hey U fans. Let's give BYU a break. No second rate program gets a home game vs. Texas.

Hey Coug fans. This isn't the same Texas the Y played in the 80's.
