• Here’s the release …
Washington State University and Boise State University will play a home-and-home football series beginning in 2016, it was announced by both schools Friday.
The first meeting of the two-game series is scheduled for Sept. 10, 2016 at Boise State with the venue shifting to Martin Stadium for a Sept. 9, 2017 contest.
“This is a series that football fans throughout the Pacific Northwest have wanted to see renewed,” said WSU Interim Director of Athletics Anne McCoy. “It is our continuing goal to play quality nonconference opponents that our fans want to see and Boise State’s past success makes it an ideal opponent for a home-and-home series.”
The Cougars hold a 4-0 series advantage over the Broncos, with all games coming during the 1997 -2001 seasons. The last meeting resulted in a 41-20 victory by WSU, Sept. 8, 2001 at Boise.
