PROVO -- Brigham Young University announced Tuesday the University of Washington has opted out of games against the Cougars in 2011 and 2012. This will not affect the matchup in 2010 in Provo.

The two schools were originally scheduled to play in Seattle in 2011 and at BYU in 2012. Next season, Washington will travel to Provo for a return game from the contest played in Husky Stadium on Sept. 6, 2008. The Cougars have a 3-4 record in previous meetings versus Washington, including a 28-27 victory in 2008.

"We look forward to playing the University of Washington next season at LaVell Edwards Stadium," said BYU Director of Athletics Tom Holmoe. "Scheduling changes are part of the current college football landscape. We will move forward and continue working on our future football schedules."
