SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Pac-12 Conference will be following the foot steps of the Big Ten Conference by moving to a conference-only schedule for the 2020 college football season.

According to multiple reports including KSLSports.com columnist and Sirius XM Pac-12 host Sean O’Connell, the Pac-12 will eliminate non-conference games this season.

This likely means that Utah will not play BYU, Wyoming or Montana State this season as those teams were originally scheduled to play the Utes in their non-conference slate. It will be the first time since 2014 that Utah will not face BYU on the gridiron. The rivalry was supposed to take a two-year hiatus after the Utes scheduled a home-and-home series with Michigan in 2014 and 2015. But, the rivals faced each other in the 2015 Las Vegas Bowl.

Utah hasn’t played Wyoming since 2010 which was their last season as Mountain West Conference foes. It is unknown when these missed games will be played in the future. The Cowboys are scheduled to make the return trip to Salt Lake City in 2025.
