PROVO, Utah (AP) — Brigham Young craved the exposure that came with an independent schedule and big-money ESPN deal.

Losing big-time to an instate rival last week wasn’t part of the plan.

BYU starts trying to rebuild its credibility on Friday night against a Central Florida team embarrassed in a 17-10 road loss to Florida International University.

The Friday kickoff, again tied to the TV deal, gives both teams one less day to prepare but is a welcome chance to move on earlier.
