Sources caution that the game -- regardless of date -- has not yet been set. The Horned Frogs have two slots to fill on their schedule and need a quality nonconference opponent after Texas Tech last week informed TCU that it will not play in Fort Worth as originally scheduled. BYU, which will compete as an independent starting next season, has 12 games scheduled but can add a 13th thanks to a provision that allows teams playing at Hawaii to add a game. The Cougars have open dates on Oct. The Mountain West Conference has not set its conference schedule and typically does not until March or April to allow its teams flexibility in scheduling nonconference games. If it happens, it would be the third consecutive Tech-Baylor matchup to be held in North Texas.
BYU students have as many dates in a month as do women in four years at a mainstream college, says now-retired BYU professor Bruce Chadwick. He taught sociology at the university for 35 years and did a survey on dating and marriage at BYU. According to a national study to Chadwick's survey, students at other colleges have pretty much ceased dating and are simply hanging out and "hooking up," which can be anything from kissing to having sex — all with no commitment.
He added he has never personally participated in a NCMO. Chrissy Barnes, 20, of Spokane, Wash.

I'm not one to judge though. The survey revealed BYU students hold marriage to be extremely important and see the dating process as the road to that goal, while refraining from high levels of physical intimacy. While 60 percent to 70 percent of unmarried college students say they have had sex, at BYU the percentage is 3 percent to 4 percent, he said.
Dating is a huge pastime at BYU, whether it be formal dates, group dates or simply hanging out in groups. The survey states that at BYU, 23 percent of the men and 19 percent of the women claimed having five or more dates per month. Thirty-five percent of the men and 27 percent of the women had at least one date a week.
He says he goes on about three dates a month.

Some BYU students interviewed said they got burned out on dating. Abamonte said his mission president encouraged the returned missionaries to get married as soon as possible "because he didn't want us breaking the law of chastity. But Abamonte said he hasn't had a date since he returned from his mission two months ago.
Chadwick said more BYU students are following the national trend and delaying marriage until after college. If the graduate moves to an area that doesn't have a high of LDS people, "the pickings are a whole lot slimmer," Chadwick said.
