TV Info, Kickoff Time Revealed For BYU Football Game At Boise State
PROVO, Utah – The potential final chapter of the BYU football series with Boise State has a kickoff time.
BYU’s last scheduled trip to the blue turf to take Boise State will kick off at 5 p.m. (MT) on FS2. According to Fox Sports’ schedule for week 10 in college football. Boise State’s official website has the game listed as either FS1 or FS2.

Typically game times and TV info are announced 12 days in advance. However, this game waited six days before because FOX has the possibility of a World Series Game 7 taking place on Saturday, so that is what caused the hold-up.
Saturday in Boise will be the first time BYU has played a game on FS2.
After the 2022 season, the two programs don’t have any scheduled games between one another moving forward. That is due to BYU moving to the Big 12 Conference in 2023.
Boise State athletic director Jeremiah Dickey said on Twitter in January regarding the BYU series, “One more game with them and then done…for now.”
The series between the two regional rivals only dates back to 2003 but has emerged as an annual matchup during BYU’s era of Independence.
Boise State is currently 6-2 overall and on a four-game winning streak after a shocking loss on the road to UTEP on September 23. Broncos head coach Andy Avalos fired offensive coordinator Tim Plough and it led to quarterback Hank Bachmeier entering his name in the transfer portal. Boise has since turned to redshirt freshman Taylen Green at quarterback, and he continues to get better each week.
During Boise’s 49-10 dismantling of Colorado State, Green passed for a season-high 305 yards and he completed 24 of his 30 pass attempts.
BYU is 4-5 and on a four-game losing streak after falling to East Carolina on a last-second field goal last Friday at home.
Last year, Boise State upset BYU when they were ranked No. 10 in the nation and undefeated with a 5-0 record. The final score last year was 26 to 17.
During the strange 2020 season amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, BYU secured their lone victory on the blue turf, 51 to 17.
