SALT LAKE CITY – University of Utah Athletic Director Chris Hill announced that Utah and BYU will continue their rivalry in early September of 2017, and they play in the final game of the regular season in 2018.

Hill said he expects the PAC 12 Conference to approve the schedule in early August.

“We value the BYU-Utah rivalry,” Hill said. “We know it’s important to our student-athletes, to our university, to our fans, and to the media.”

Utah and BYU will play on September 9 this year in Provo, but they will not play against each other in 2014 and 2015. The rivalry will resume on September 10, 2016 in Salt Lake City.
