BYU on Wednesday announced another Pac-12 football scheduling agreement, this time with the University of Washington. The teams will meet at Husky Stadium in Seattle on Sept. 29, 2018, with the second game of the series scheduled for LaVell Edwards Stadium on Sept. 21, 2019.
The deal brings to nine the number of Pac-12 teams on future BYU schedules, accounting for 22 games in total, from 2014 through 2025.
"We're excited to announce this series with the Huskies," said BYU director of athletics Tom Holmoe in a school press release. "Washington has a great football tradition and they fit well with our philosophy of scheduling regional games. It gives our fans in the Pacific Northwest an opportunity to see our football team play live."
Washington has won five of the nine meetings with BYU, including the most recent get-together, in last season's Fight Hunger Bowl.
With today's news, BYU now has 74 contracted football games on future schedules, including contests on the 2014 slate.
The games are broken down below, sorted by "Power 5" and "Group of 5" opposition.
