Boise State teams have produced double-figure victory totals eight of the last 10 seasons, with 109 combined wins over that decade (not including 2019). Current head coach Bryan Harsin is 56-15 (4-0 in 2019 and ranked 15th by the coaches and 16th by the Associated Press this week) with at least nine wins in each of his five seasons, two Mountain West crowns and three bowl victories. Over the last three seasons alone (2016-17-18), Boise State has claimed 31 combined victories and finished in the final polls in both 2018 and 2017.
BYU has won at least eight games in seven seasons over the past decade. Competing as an independent since 2011, the Cougars have six bowl victories and 81 combined wins over those 10 years. The Cougars are 2-2 in 2019 with wins over Tennessee and USC.
“BYU and Boise State represent big-time strength-of-schedule games for our program based on their records and top-25 rankings in recent years. We are committed to continue to schedule attractive, meaningful football games both for our fans and student-athletes. BYU and Boise State are both power programs, and we’re proud to play them,” says White.
