BYU has a game Saturday after all.

The Cougars’ contest against Pacific on Feb. 8 has been moved up to this Saturday (4 p.m., MST, CBS Sports Network) at the Marriott Center.

BYU (13-4, 4-2) was originally scheduled to play San Francisco Saturday but that game was postponed due to COVID-19 issues within the Dons’ program.

The BYU-Pacific game was previously scheduled for Jan. 7 as the Cougars’ West Coast Conference home opener, but the Tigers went on pause due to COVID-19 concerns; the game was postponed and was later moved to Feb. 8. 

BYU is coming off a 76-73 loss at Pepperdine Wednesday.
