The Vikings matchup comes one day after coach Mark Pope confirmed BYU would be facing the highly vaunted Oregon Ducks in mid to late November.
The Cougars are also set to participate in the Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic in Honolulu from December 22, 23, and 25. The field includes host Hawaii, Liberty, Northern Iowa, South Florida, Wyoming, and two Power 6 teams in Stanford and Vanderbilt.
BYU will face in-state rival Utah on Saturday, November 27 just after the Thanksgiving holiday.
The Cougars are also expected to play Iona, San Diego State, Utah Valley, Utah State, and Weber State, though some of those games have yet to be confirmed.
