BYU announced its 2018 football schedule Wednesday, with no surprises on the 12-game schedule from previous scheduling announcements.
The schedule includes three teams that finished the 2017 season ranked in the top 25, including No. 6/7 Wisconsin, No. 15/16 Washington and No. 22 Boise State. BYU will face each of these opponents on the road next season.
Only one game will not take place on a Saturday. The Cougars’ matchup with Utah State will be played Friday, Oct. 5. That is subject to change for television plans.
BYU’s schedule includes four opponents from the Pac-12, with BYU visiting Arizona, Washington and Utah, and hosting Cal. The Cougars and Utes face each other on Thanksgiving weekend, a reversal of recent years when the two rivals have played early in the season.
No game times or TV plans have been set yet.
