While one Arizona school is getting its feelings hurt about a game being cancelled, the other state school is scheduling new games.

On Friday, Arizona and BYU announced a three-game series between the two schools.

The games will be played in the 2016, 2018 and 2020 seasons, and it's sort of a home-and-home with a "neutral" site in the mix as well. The 2016 game will be played at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., which isn't really all that neutral considering Glendale is two hours away from Tucson. Provo, Utah, is a 10-hour drive.

The 2018 game will be played in Tucson and the 2020 game in Provo.

Arizona and BYU have met on the field 21 times (16 times as charter members of the Western Athletic Conference, 1962-77) with the most recent meeting being a 16-13 Arizona victory to open the 2006 season. Arizona leads the all-time series with a record of 11-9-1.
