How the Pac 12/MWC Decision Impacts BYU Football and Basketball

The Pac 12 and Mountain West Conferences announced Thursday that they will resume football this Fall — the MWC will begin October 24 and the Pac 12 November 6. Additionally, the Pac 12 will begin men’s and women’s college basketball competition November 25 after initially delaying until January.

Both of these decisions should have mostly positive impacts for BYU football and basketball.


The Pac 12 and MWC will be playing a conference only schedule. However, MWC commissioner Craig Thompson indicated that BYU may play Boise State this season; November 6 or 7 looks like a possible date.
