Now that the Oregon ordeal is over, it’s back to the day-to-day offseason fodder: scheduling!

USC and BYU have announced a three-game series for the 2019, 2021 and 2023 seasons. The release states the Trojans will visit the Cougars on Sept. 14, 2019 before hosting BYU on the Thanksgiving weekends in 2021 (Nov. 27) and 2023 (Nov. 25).

“We have a huge number of Cougar football fans in Southern California who will love having a chance to see their team play twice against one of the best programs in all of college football,” said BYU director of athletics Tom Holmoe in a statement. “Cougar Nation will also be excited to have USC come to Provo.”

USC holds a 2-0 edge in the all-time series.

Additionally, USC has extended its series with Notre Dame through 2023, and added home games against Idaho and Arkansas State in 2015 and New Mexico in 2016.

“Not only are we pleased to be able to extend our storied series with Notre Dame, but we were able to keep the game on the traditional dates of Thanksgiving weekend in Los Angeles and mid-October in South Bend,” said USC athletic director Pat Haden. “Adding the series with BYU, which is a great matchup for the fans of both teams and for all college football fans, helped us in that regard.”
