The BYU football team has rescheduled its game against Mississippi State for Saturday, Dec. 1.
The game was supposed to be played Sept. 15, but was postponed in response to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C.
BYU was originally going to play the University of Hawaii on Dec. 1, but has moved that game back to Dec. 8.
“We”re excited to play Mississippi, they are a very competitive team,” said head coach Gary Crowton. “We want to play all the games we were scheduled for.”
But for now, the Cougars are focusing on winning their conference games, Crowton said.
The rescheduled Mississippi game is now eight games away. “It is hard to project how we”ll be competing in December,” Crowton said.
BYU wide receiver Jason Kukahiko said the team is excited to play Mississippi State. “We”ll play everybody,” he said. “We just want to let people know we are for real and get some more recognition.”
