FORT WORTH (AP) – Rose Bowl champion Texas Christian University (TCU) will play Brigham Young University (BYU) in football next season even though they are no longer Mountain West Conference rivals.
They’ll meet October 28 at Cowboys Stadium. ESPN2 will televise the Friday night game.
TCU is coming off its first undefeated season since its 1938 national championship and was No. 2 in the final AP poll. This will be the Horned Frogs’ last season in the Mountain West before moving to the Big East in 2012.
BYU has already left the conference, and will play as an independent.
Both teams have played at Cowboys Stadium. TCU beat Oregon State in last season’s opener and BYU defeated Oklahoma in 2009, the first college game played at the Dallas Cowboys’ home.
