BOISE For the second straight season, Boise State and Idaho will play a mens basketball game in Downtown Boise. This years game is Nov. 27, the night before Thanksgiving. The game time has not been announced. The contract is for two years and the teams will meet on the day before Thanksgiving in 2014. The Broncos won last years meeting 78-68.
Unlike the football programs, which have not met since Boise State left the WAC for the Mountain West in 2011, the basketball teams have met each season. Idaho is in its final year in the WAC, and begins Big Sky play next season in all sports but football. For seating purposes, the arena will be split in half to accommodate each schools fans. Tickets initially will be sold through the schools before going on sale to the public Nov. 1. CenturyLink Arena will also host Idaho and Idaho State on Dec. 20. Ticketing for that game will be handled in a similar manner with a general on-sale date of Nov. 20.
