Utah State and BYU have added a pair of games to the back end of their current agreement. The two teams will now play annually through 2018, and the latest two games to the series will be a home-and-home.
The dates for the extension will have BYU travel to Romney Stadium on Friday, Sept. 29, 2017; Utah State will return the favor by playing at LaVell Edwards Stadium on Friday, Oct. 5, 2018.
"I appreciate the working relationship I have with Scott Barnes at Utah State," said BYU athletic director Tom Holmoe. "Scott has done an outstanding job at USU and is great to work with. We value the longstanding in-state rivalry with Utah State and look forward to these future games."
These two teams have met a 83 times over the course of their history with BYU leading the all-time series 46-34-3, winning 12 of the last 13 and three in a row.
"We are excited to continue our home and home series with BYU long-term," said Utah State athletic director Scott Barnes. "This rivalry is important to both institutions and the state of Utah."
In the upcoming years this series will take place in Provo in 2014, 2016 and 2018 and then in Logan for the 2015 and 2017 seasons.
