PROVO — BYU and Middle Tennessee State have agreed to a home-and-home deal, according to The Tennessean.

The newspaper report said the Cougars and Blue Raiders will meet in 2013 in Provo, then play again in 2014 in Murfreesboro, Tenn.

BYU has not officially announced the series with MTSU, which is a member of the Sun Belt Conference.

MTSU athletic director Chris Massaro told the Tennessean, "When (BYU) went independent (after being in the Mountain West Conference), they were looking for games, and I've always thought they had a national following. So I am very excited about that home-and-home series."
