The Boise State Broncos will host the UT Martin Skyhawks in 2013, according to UTM’s official website.
UT Martin will travel to face Boise State at Bronco Stadium on Sept. 21, 2013. The game will be the first ever between the two schools.
The Broncos now have four non-conference games scheduled for the 2013 season. Boise State also hosts Southern Miss (Sept. 28) and travels to Washington (Sept. 7) and BYU (Oct. 26).
Unless the Broncos cancel one of their previously scheduled games, it appears they will play an 8-game conference schedule in 2013 when they join the Big East.
But due to the loss of West Virginia to the Big 12, rumors persist that the Big East is trying to entice the Broncos to join the conference in 2012.
Earlier this month, BSU President Bob Kustra had this to say in response to joining the Big East in 2012:
“It’s too late. I can’t imagine how anyone can pull that off. We would never want to pull it off in a fashion that dealt shabbily with our existing partners in the Mountain West. I don’t think that could ever work.”
