So in other words you got a 2 for 1?

LOL

We'll take our home and home with Michigan.

Any day.

I was wondering when we going to see them at LES. It came with a price tag though. BYU plays at Wisconsin twice.
This is just getting unacceptable. We get something only to give away twice as much. Enough of this 1 for 2 scheduling.

This BYU fan is fed up!

2 for 1 is better than your one-and-done versus Notre Dame and no different than your 2 for 1 versus Michigan (oh, you thought we'd forgotten about that game you played in the Big House a couple of years ago, didn't you)

LOL!

Nice to see that BYU fans can see through the BYU/Deseret News/Dick Harmon PR spin machine and realize that you got a 2 for 1. "Home and home plus another game in Madison" equals 2 for 1.

Yes we are playing twice on the road but they did us a favor setting up a game for next year. That allows us to play someone good instead of New Mexico State etc. Would you rather play NMSU or Idaho at home or Wisconsin anywhere?

I love that we are playing a top ten team this week and next week. Independence might not be perfect but we are playing more games that are fun to watch than ever before.

IF you were a BYU fan, that might actually mean something, but since you're just a Utah troll who's too embarrassed to be associated with the Utes, nobody is buying your act.

Holmoe is doing a great job creating a schedule filled with exciting match ups against big name opponents throughout the country.

As a true BYU fan, I'm looking forward to seeing the Cougars playing at storied programs like Nebraska, Notre Dame, and Wisconsin.

I'm sure you would but, it's not happening.

But, I do agree that BYU needs to see what they can do to address concerns of the Big XII or else decide to scale it back a bit on football.

Who's "we"? You and that mouse in your pocket?

As a fan, I will take the 2 for 1 deal, just happy that Wisconsin is coming to BYU and not just a one and done.

And too everyone that keeps say there home and home vs Michigan, um it is more like 3 for 1, 2002, 2008 you played Big Blue.

Sure beats playing Northern Colorado and pretending to be something you're not in the PAC 12, like uh... a winning team.

Excuse me... maybe playing 'pretend' football is exciting. I not sure but Wisconsin coming to Provo will be great.

After Utah's prestigious invite to a BCS conferece:

Chris Hill scheduled a 1 for 1 with Michigan

After byu's move from the mwc to the WAC:

Holmoe scheduled a 2 for 1 with wisconsin

Those are the facts

I am more excited for the home and homes with Middle Tennessee State, Southern Miss, Houston, Hawaii, and Boise State. Maybe BYU can schedule Vanderbilt and Duke for big conference wins

On the plus side, USU still schedules two-for-one with you.

BYU Independence--TASTES GREAT, LESS FILLING.

And BYU fans wrote the book on delusional escape from reality!

Once again, a BYU fan attempts to hijack a thread.
What does past scheduling have to do with future contracts? Nothing.

According to sammyg the BYU football season ends after the ND game.
Let's just sweep the season ending schedule under the rug.

BYU can't pretend. The only way to have a 9-10 win season is to play bottom feeders from the WAC. OUCH!

And BYU is STILL 6-9 all time against San Jose St! OUCH!

While you are at it, enjoy the Idaho & New Mexico St games. OUCH!

Whether you consider it a 2:1 or 1:1 makes little difference to myself and the rest of the BYU fanbase living in the Midwest. To see BYU play last year I drove 12 hours to Mississippi and will make the 5 hour (or so) drive this year to see them play at ND. Getting a game practically in my backyard in 2013 and 2018 is a win for me and for all fans in teh region, even if a 2 for 1 isn't exactly what the program is looking for when scheduling.

Utah is 0-1 in the WAC and 1-6 versus the YMCA.

The only way Utah has of qualifying for a bowl is beating the bottom feeders of the PAC - the Utes haven't had a road win over a PAC opponent with a winning record since last century.

Nothing wrong with going 2 for 1 against the Badgers.

@Sammy G

Not much difference between Norther Colorado, Idaho, New Mexico State and Weber State; now is there?

I'm with you WisCoug! Three hour drive to Madison for me and I will be there!
