Wolf Pack football finalizes 2013 non-conference schedule; takes out Oregon

RENO, Nev. (KRNV & -- The University of Nevada football team will play host to BYU at Mackay Stadium this fall as part of changes to the 2013 Wolf Pack football schedule, athletics director Cary Groth announced today.

Nevada will open the season at UCLA on Aug. 31 before coming home for the Mackay Stadium opener against UC Davis on Sept. 14. Nevada will travel to play Florida State on Sept. 21 with the home game against BYU scheduled for Nov. 30.

As part of the move to bring BYU to Reno this year, Nevada's previously scheduled game with Oregon, which was to have been played Sept. 7, has been moved to 2019 and will be in Eugene, Ore. The Sept. 7 date could be filled by a Mountain West game or could be an open weekend.

The changes were made to alleviate a schedule in which Nevada was to play three likely Top-25 teams in a four-week stretch.

Nevada and BYU have met three times since 1940 with BYU winning in Provo in 2001 and Nevada taking victories over the Cougars in 2002 in Reno and again in 2010 in Provo. Overall, the Cougars have a 4-2-2 advantage in the all-time series.
