BYU-Tennessee Football 2023 Season Opener Cancelled, BYU to Receive Buyout

The BYU-Tennessee 2023 season opener in Provo is off the table as the Vols announced they have replaced the game with a neutral site game with Virginia in Nashville.

From the release: “Tennessee was originally scheduled to begin the season against BYU in Provo, Utah, but this contest played in-state versus Virginia replaces that game.”

BYU had been shedding non-conference games in order to prepare for the influx of Big 12 Conference games beginning of 2023, but things appeared set last week once the Utah State series was cancelled. That put BYU at 3 non-conference games, which set BYU up for a 9-game Big 12 schedule.
