Eye On Boise

Broncos, Vandals talk…

Here's a news item from the AP: BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Athletic officials from Boise State and Idaho are talking about options for keeping the rivalry alive after the Broncos switch conferences. Boise State is moving from the Western Athletic Conference to the Mountain West Conference next season. The change could spell the end of a gridiron rivalry the Broncos have dominated in the last decade. But leaders from the two schools are at least talking about future matchups. Vandal Athletic Director Rob Spear said he was contacted last week by Bronco Athletic Director Gene Bleymaier. Spear says Bleymaier is working on a proposal to schedule games beyond 2011. For now, the Broncos and Vandals are slated to meet one more time — in Moscow Nov. 12.
