Wisconsin, BYU Agree On Home-And-Home Series

Russ Isabella-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Badgers are already slated to host the Cougars at Camp Randall Stadium next season, but now the two schools will meet again in 2017 and 2018.

With the two schools already scheduled to square off in Madison next season, Wisconsin and BYU announced a home-and-home series planned for 2017 and 2018 on Thursday.

The Badgers are already slated to host the Cougars on Nov. 9, 2013, at Camp Randall Stadium, and they will travel to Provo, Utah, in 2017. The following year BYU will return to Madison.

"I'm excited to play three games against BYU," Wisconsin head coach Bret Bielema said in a statement. "As we continue to strengthen our non-conference schedule it's great to have a team with the history of success that BYU has come to Camp Randall Stadium. It also provides an opportunity for our fans to travel to one of the great venues in college football, LaVell Edwards Stadium."

Wisconsin and BYU have met only one other time, in a 28-3 Cougars win on Sept. 20, 1980.

Since Bielema began coaching UW in 2006, the Badgers are 64-21 while the Cougars are 64-19. BYU's winning percentage over that span is 10th-best in the country while Wisconsin's is 11th, though the Badgers have been to a bowl game in 10 straight seasons and the Cougars' current streak is seven.

Wisconsin has already scheduled future home-and-home series with Washington State (2014 in Pullman and 2015 in Madison), Virginia Tech (2016 in Blacksburg and 2017 in Madison) and Washington (2018 in Seattle and 2019 in Madison).
