BYU to play at Nebraska in 2015

BYU will play at Nebraska on Sept. 5, 2015, in the first meeting between the two football programs, the schools announced Thursday.

“This is a great opportunity to play an outstanding football team in one of the storied football stadiums in the country,” BYU athletic director Tom Holmoe said in a statement. “Nebraska was looking for a game in 2015 and the timing was good for BYU. I look forward to developing a long term relationship with Nebraska.”

The addition of Nebraska gives BYU five games for the 2015 season. Boise State, Utah State, Southern Miss and Hawaii are already on the schedule. Boise State and Utah State are home games.
