This fall the Cougars will glare across the gridiron at 12 opponents, including five that played in bowl games last season.
“We’re excited about this year’s schedule,” says BYU head coach Bronco Mendenhall. “We look forward to competing this season with an improved football team, building off the success from last season.”
The road schedule will take BYU to Arizona, Massachusetts, Texas, and Colorado (twice) as well as to Salt Lake City. The season will kick off on Sept. 2, when the Cougars meet Arizona, an old-time foe from the Western Athletic Conference, for the first time in 29 years. Other non-conference opponents will include Tulsa (home, Sept. 9), Boston College (away, Sept. 16), and Utah State (home, Sept. 23).
Conference games will include TCU (away, Sept. 28), San Diego State (home, Oct. 7), UNLV (home, Oct. 21), Air Force (away, Oct. 28), Colorado State (away, Nov. 4), Wyoming (home, Nov. 9), New Mexico (home, Nov. 18), and Utah (away, Nov. 25). Many games will be broadcast on CSTV or the mtn., the new Mountain West Conference sports network.

Conference Helps Families Face Challenges
Pornography, divorce, suicide, same-sex attraction—the problems facing families today are both intimidating and numerous. Designed to arm families with practical information and spiritual support for such challenges, the Families Under Fire conference will convene in the BYU Conference Center Oct. 2 and 3.
In nearly 20 sessions, presenters—including practitioners, scholars, and religious leaders—will bring a pragmatic and inspirational approach to topics such as eating disorders, depression, the Internet, child discipline, gang awareness, and video games.
“This is a conference for the average person,” says Robert A. Holcombe (MS ’92), the program’s administrator. “It is not for expert researchers, but for people in the mix who want to get help and help others.”
