PROVO, Utah – The 2023 BYU football schedule is one to remember. For the first time in BYU’s history, the Cougars will compete as a member of the Big 12 Conference.

It’s also the first time BYU will be viewed as a Power Five program.

The 2023 BYU football schedule is historic

The 2023 slate starts with three non-conference games, starting with a matchup against Sam Houston from Conference USA on September 2nd in Provo. Sam Houston is jumping from the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) to Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) in 2023.

Then BYU will host Southern Utah before traveling to the SEC for a revenge opportunity against Arkansas on September 16.

BYU’s inaugural Big 12 Conference schedule opens on September 23 at Lawrence, Kansas, against the Kansas Jayhawks. The first Big 12 game in Provo will come six days later against fellow Big 12 newcomer Cincinnati.

Other notable games on the BYU football schedule include TCU on October 14, Texas Tech in Provo for the first time on October 21, a trip to Austin to face Texas on October 28, and the Oklahoma Sooners roll into LaVell Edwards Stadium for Senior Day on November 18.
