Two days before they're scheduled to play the second game of a home-and-home series, the BYU Cougars and East Carolina Pirates announced that they've scheduled another pair of games.

Having played in 2015 (a 45-38 Cougars win in Provo) with another game set for this Saturday in North Carolina, the two sides will meet again in 2022 and 2024. The 2022 contest will be in Provo.

Both teams enter Saturday's contest having gotten off to 1-6 starts in 2017.
