The problems with being an independent program for at least this season shows in the bowl game chosen for the BYU Cougars, who will play in the Independence Bowl despite a 10-2 record and a 5-0 record in the Pac-12 despite not being a member. They’ll take on the UAB Blazers in Shreveport, Louisiana for the 2021 Independence Bowl on Saturday, December 18th at 3:30 p.m. from Independence Stadium.
