Boise State Conference Schedule Takes Shape

It's been speculated on for months, and now the Boise State football team has an idea on its conference schedule.

This fall, the Broncos will host Air Force, Nevada, New Mexico and Wyoming, while playing Colorado State, Fresno State, San Diego State and Utah State on the road.  Those sites will switch in 2014.  The Broncos will not play Hawai'i, San Jose State nor UNLV in either 2013 or 2014.

Boise State also learned its Mountain West schedule in 2015, 2016 and beyond.  In 2015, Boise State hosts Air Force, Hawai'i, New Mexico and Wyoming and will travel to play Utah State, San Jose State, Colorado State and UNLV, then will switch home dates with those teams in 2016.  

In a blow to rivalries, Boise State will not play either Fresno State, Nevada or San Diego State in either 2015 or 2016.  The conference announced that the four-year cycle will then repeat in 2017 and beyond.  However, given the dynamic nature of conference expansion, I'd wager that there will be changes before the four years are up.
