The news was posted on BYU's athletics website (BYUCougars.com) on Saturday. It does not appear that emails were sent to media members publicizing the announcement.
The Flames are transitioning into the Football Bowl Subdivision as an independent. Liberty played in the Big South Conference from 2002 to 2016 and won eight conference championships.
Obviously, a lot of fans are wondering why athletic director Tom Holmoe would agree to a home-and-home deal with a school that has formerly played at the FCS level.
Liberty will visit BYU on Nov. 9, 2019 and the Cougars will travel to Lynchburg, Virginia home of the Flames on Oct. 22, 2022.
Until Holmoe addresses the matter publicly, we will just have to assume the longtime BYU athletic director wanted to help out a fellow independent, knowing how difficult that path will be for the Flames.
Maybe it is telling that the announcement on the Cougars' website made mention that the series will pit "two private Christian universities."
It appears that BYU now has 12 games scheduled for the 2019 season, so Holmoe's work for that year is done. Here's the 2019 schedule:
