BYU’s September 2015 schedule is a beast with addition of UCLA

Utah v BYU

BYU is going to have one monster schedule in September 2015. In addition to the road games at Nebraska and Michigan, as well as a home date against Boise State, the Cougars are also adding a road game at UCLA to the mix.

BYU continues to tap the Pac-12 for opponents to fill the schedule.  The Cougars have agreed to a home-and-home series with UCLA in 2015 and 201, the schools announced today. UCLA will host the Cougars on September 19, 2015 in Los Angeles, and BYU will host UCLA on September 17, 2016 in Provo to complete the home-and-home series.

It should go without saying that scheduling can be tough for BYU, a program standing firm on life as a football independent despite power conferences weighing BYU as a lighter opponent than Notre Dame in the new College Football Playoff era. For BYU to secure home-and-home dates with teams from power conferences is not exactly uncommon, but it is something the school may at times have to work harder to pick up, especially with teams playing nine-game conference schedules. Getting UCLA on board is significant, especially considering the way the Bruins have been trending upward recently.

It is also somewhat interesting to see that BYU will be facing either UCLA or USC more often than some Pac-12 North teams might, given the conference’s scheduling rotation.

BYU also has games scheduled against Arizona, Arizona State, Stanford, California, Washington State and, of course, Utah appearing on future schedules through 2025 as well.

    You have to give BYU credit. They may get killed short term but they will start pulling in a lot of top recruits from the 5 state area around Utah. That area of the country is booming with new football talent as people move to that area with the energy boom. Good move BYU. The kids will want to play for a school that plays the best and intends to be the best.

    You are right. As an OU fan I would love for BYU to join the Big 12. They would give a TV presence on the NW side of the country and raise the strength of the Big 12.

    Wow! That’s 3 unranked teams and #16 from the final 2013 poll.

    yeah, but its BYU asshat, not traditionally known as a world beaters taking on some traditional big time programs. I’d call that stepping up, but hey, I’m sure the program you root for is doing their best to beef up their schedule in pound for pound fashion.

    3 of the 4 are from BCS confs…….& those 3 are on the road….You’ll NEVER see a B10 or SEC team hang their nuts out there like that.

    I’m thrilled for the road game in 2015 but who won the matchup in 201
