Thursday Trivia: Most Played Opponent

Thank you to everyone who participated in last week's question: "What football powerhouse backed out of a visit to Provo for the 1996 season?" Two responders had the correct answer: Alabama. One even had a link to The New York Times announcing when this match up was scheduled. BYU did eventually play Alabama in 1998. I find it significant that the 1996 game did not happen. If BYU had a win against Alabama (10-3, 2nd in the SEC), rather than Arkansas State, on its resume, it would have been nearly impossible for the Bowl Alliance to keep BYU out of its bowl games.

Moving on, BYU will play Utah State for the 80th time this Friday. The only team that BYU has played more than Utah State is, of course, Utah (85 meetings). With that said, this week's trivia question is:
After the two in-state rivals, what school has BYU played the most in football?
Leave your answer in the comments section. Come back next week when the answer is revealed and a new trivia question is asked.

  1. It seems like I saw somewhere that the next-most played opponent is Wyoming.

  2. I'm thinking Air Force. Not sure why, but that is who popped into my head.
