BYU and Texas announced a home-and-home series on Thursday that will take place in 2013 and 2014.
Texas will travel to BYU in 2013 and the Cougars will play in Austin in 2014. The exact dates of those games haven't been finalized.
BYU will play Texas sooner than the announced series, traveling to Texas on Sept. 10, 2011.
Speaking of 2011, according to this story from ESPN.com's Andy Katz, BYU has been preparing for its program to become independent.
If you remember from earlier in the week, reports had BYU leaving the Mountain West after this season, becoming independent in football and having its other sports teams re-join the Western Athletic Conference.
According to Katz, the WAC had a mock football schedule for 2011 prepared with games against BYU. The mock schedule had BYU playing six games against WAC teams. But the other news this week about Fresno State and Nevada leaving the WAC to join the Mountain West puts that schedule in serious jeopardy.
