UCLA schedules home-and-home series with BYU in 2015, 2016

UCLA’s rush of schedule additions never seems to end.

Its latest move? Etching in a home-and-home series with BYU in 2015 and 2016, replacing its prior games against Nevada. The Bruins will host on Sept. 19, 2015, and visit Provo on Sept. 17, 2016.

This doesn’t carry the same aura as scheduling Texas A&M (2016/2017), Oklahoma (2018/2019) or LSU (2021/20214), but the Cougars have at least made a bowl game for nine straight years.

While the Bruins lead BYU, 7-3, in the all-time series, the Cougars’ have taken the last two in memorable fashion: a 17-16 win in the 2007 Las Vegas Bowl, and a 59-0 blowout in Provo the following year.

Nevada and UCLA mutually agreed the cancel their series, allowing the Wolf Pack to fill its Sept. 19, 2015 slot with a trip to Texas A&M — one with a reported $1.5 million payout.

    For this Bruin living in Utah, this is excellent news! Bruins will be playing games in Utah in 2015 (Utah) , 2016 (BYU), and 2017 (Utah), and I’ll be at all of them! This made my day.
