Boise State and Oregon State have added to their popular football series.
The Broncos and Beavers will meet in season openers in 2022 in Corvallis and 2023 in Boise, the schools announced Thursday.
“Strength of schedule is obviously something that is extremely important under the new postseason structure of college football,” Boise State Athletic Director Mark Coyle said in a statement. “Boise State has always made an attempt to schedule high-quality nonconference opponents, and we will continue that trend going forward. “It is also our goal to schedule home-and-home series so that Bronco Nation gets the opportunity to see these types of games at Albertsons Stadium.”
In 2022-23, the Broncos have home-and-home series scheduled with Oregon State, Michigan State and BYU. They have room for one more game in each season.
They now have a Power Five or former Big East member on the home schedule for nine straight years: Washington (2015), Washington State (2016), Virginia (2017), Connecticut (2018), Cincinnati (2019), Florida State (2020), Oklahoma State (2021), Michigan State (2022) and Oregon State (2023).
Boise State and Oregon State played home-and-home series in 2003-04 and 2005-06. Oregon State played at Boise State in 2010, a game that drew ESPN’s “College GameDay.” Boise State completes that contract by going to Oregon State in 2016.
The teams also played in 1986 and 1989. Oregon State leads the series 4-3. Boise State leads 3-2 since moving into the Football Bowl Subdivision.
