Thursday Trivia: 1996 Schedule

Thank you to everyone who participated in last week's question: "The capacity of LaVell Edwards Stadium is the ___ largest in the nation?" One respondent had the correct answer: 37. LES was number 36 when the capacity was 65,000, but the reduction to 64,045 a few years ago puts LES below Heinz Field (64,450) where the Pitt Panthers play.

With all the new scheduling that has been happening with BYU announcing independece for football, this week's trivia will be schedule related.
What football powerhouse backed out of a visit to Provo for the 1996 season?
Leave your answer in the comments section. Come back next week when the answer is revealed and a new trivia question is asked.

  2. I initially thought it might be Arizona State. They went 11-1 in 1996, losing in the Rose Bowl.

    My answer is now Alabama.

    The two teams didn't play in 1995 either.
