If you can just hang in there until 2019, you’ll see the first of a home-and-home series the two schools. BYU will make the trip to Knoxville on Sept. 7, 2019, while the Vols will venture out to Provo for a game on either Sept. 1 or 2, 2023.
This game completes Tennessee’s non-conference schedule in 2019, as the Vols will also play Georgia State, UT-Chattanooga, and UAB. That’s not exactly the kind of non-conference schedule that’s going to go a long way toward impressing any playoff committees, but the Vols will always have their SEC schedule to fall back on.
But have you seen BYU’s 2019 schedule now?
That’s a difficult September right there.
