PROVO, Utah (AP) -Brigham Young won't be opening next season against Nevada after all.
BYU is looking for a new opponent after a scheduling conflict with Nevada. The Wolf Pack and Cougars had one game remaining on a three-game deal and Nevada was scheduled to visit Provo on Aug. 30.
But Nevada scheduled Grambling State, a Championship Subdivision team, for that date. Nevada announced its schedule on Tuesday.
BYU athletic director Tom Holmoe said Thursday that he has been trying to find a replacement for the last couple of weeks, but most teams have already booked their schedule for 2008.
``You can find a game, but finding home game on that particular date and an opponent like we were looking for is difficult,'' Holmoe said.
Nevada spokesman Chad Hartley said Thursday that Nevada told BYU it needed to delay the meeting in order to get two home games during the non-conference season. Visiting BYU next fall would have given Nevada five home games and seven on the road.
``We needed to get another home game for that Aug. 30 date,'' Hartley said.
Nevada played at BYU in 2001 and BYU visited Reno the following year. There was one game remaining in the original deal that was pushed back to this year.
Without Nevada, UCLA is BYU's only non-conference home game on next fall's schedule. The Cougars will visit Utah State and Washington. Holmoe said he'd rather not have to schedule a Championship Subdivision team to replace the Wolf Pack.
