LOGAN, Utah – Utah State men’s basketball announced plans to play BYU through 2021, with the series continuing to be a home-and-home, mingled with a game at Vivint Smart Homes Arena in Salt Lake City.
“We are excited to continue our long standing rivalry with BYU,” head coach Tim Duryea said. “Coach (Dave) Rose and his staff have always understood the significance of the game between our institutions.
