Future BYU Game At East Carolina Moved To 2025 Season

Jan 16, 2023, 11:44 AM | Updated: 11:48 am

PROVO, Utah – BYU football is keeping a road trip to East Carolina University on their future schedules. East Carolina unveiled their future non-conference schedules on Monday, and BYU’s road trip to Greenville, North Carolina, has been moved from the 2024 season to 2025.

Initially, the game was scheduled for October 19, 2024. Instead, BYU will make the 2,233-mile trip to ECU on September 20, 2025. It will be a return visit to the two-game series between BYU and the Pirates that started in 2022.

East Carolina won that meeting in Provo, 27-24, on October 28, 2022.

The reshuffling of the game with East Carolina was due to BYU’s upcoming move to the Big 12 Conference in 2023. As a member of the Big 12, BYU will have nine conference games and only three non-conference games to work with.

Moving East Carolina to the 2025 schedule completes BYU’s non-conference schedule for that season. BYU’s three out-of-league games are Southern Utah in Provo on September 6, ECU on September 20, and a to-be-announced date with rival Utah in Provo.

For BYU’s first three years in the Big 12, each season already has three non-conference opponents. In 2026, BYU has four games scheduled, so one will need to be dropped. The first season that BYU needs to add a non-conference opponent is for the 2027 schedule.

East Carolina leads the all-time series against BYU, 2-1. The Pirates won the last two meetings in 2017 and 2022. BYU’s lone victory came in the first all-time matchup between the two programs in 2015. A 45-38 victory on October 10, 2015.

East Carolina University is a member of the American Athletic Conference.
