This is the first time in the history of the BYU-Boise State rivalry that the two teams will meet in the daytime. Typically, BYU and Boise State have always kicked off at either 7 p.m. or later, with many of those games taking place on either a Thursday or Friday night.
For BYU, this will be their first day game in 2021. Each game has kicked off at 7 p.m. or later throughout the first five weeks of the season, with the first four games kicking off at 8:15 p.m. or later.
So for those Cougar fans looking to come home from a game at a decent hour, this is a welcomed change.
The last time BYU played on a 1:30 p.m. ABC or ESPN broadcast was in 2019 when they hosted the Washington Huskies. That was the last time BYU lost a home game. BYU has since reeled off 13 consecutive home victories.
BYU and Boise State have played 11 games all-time. Boise State owns a series lead of 7-4. BYU is 3-2 against the Broncos in Provo and has won the past two meetings.
The Cougars last played the Broncos in 2020, when BYU beat Boise State in Idaho, 51-17.
BYU is currently 5-0 on the season and ranked No. 13 in the latest AP Top 25 poll.
Boise State will travel to Provo with a losing record of 2-3 this season.
