The Broncos will play UTEP in the 2021-22 seasons and Rice in 2023-24. Both teams will visit Boise first. The Broncos play in El Paso, Texas, in 2022 and Houston in 2024. The three teams were in the WAC together from 2001-04. Boise State is 5-0 against UTEP and 1-1 against Rice. Monday’s announcement fills the 2022-23 schedules.
