Cincinnati, BYU announce two-game series

Cincinnati and BYU will play a two-game series in 2015-16, the schools announced Thursday.

The Cougars will host the Bearcats Oct. 24, 2015, in Provo, Utah before traveling to Cincinnati for a Nov. 12, 2016 game.

The schools have never played.

“We are very pleased to announce this home and home series with BYU,” Cincinnati athletic director Whit Babcock said in a release. "They have a storied history and we look forward to competing against an opponent of their caliber. It should be a wonderful addition to our home schedule in Nippert Stadium for our ticket holders as well as serving as a great student-athlete experience for our players when we travel to Provo.”
