The Mountain West Conference announced its football schedule Thursday, and Boise State will close out the 2017 campaign on the road at Fresno State.

As previously announced, the Broncos will open at home Sept. 2 against the Troy Trojans, a team coming off a 10-3 season. The season finale comes Nov. 25 at the Bulldogs, who have former Boise State receiver Kirby Moore on staff as an assistant.

With the schedule announcement came a slight change for the team’s home game against Virginia, which is moved up a day to Friday, Sept. 22. The game will kickoff at 6 p.m. on ESPN or ESPN2.
