The Boise State Broncos and the Troy Trojans have scheduled a home-and-home football series for 2017 and 2018, both schools announced today.
Boise State will host the first game of the series and first ever meeting between the two schools at Bronco Stadium on Sept. 2, 2017. In the second and final game of the two-game set, the Broncos will travel to face the Trojans at Veterans Memorial Stadium on Sept. 1, 2018. Both games will be the season-opener for each school.
Boise State now has four non-conference games scheduled for the 2017 season. The Broncos host Troy on Sept. 2, travel to Washington State on Sept. 9, host Virginia on Sept. 23, and travel to BYU on Oct. 7.
In 2018, BSU now has the trip to Troy to compliment their Oct. 20 home game against BYU.
The Broncos have been very active as of late in setting their future football schedules. Boise announced a 2015/17 home-and-home with Virginia in February and a 2019-20 home-and-home with Florida State last week.
Boise State is the first scheduled non-conference opponent for the Troy Trojans for both the 2017 and 2018 seasons.
“This is another marquee matchup that is exciting for both our fans and our football program,” Hartwell said. “Boise State has been one of the most successful teams in the country recently and this series will further enhance Troy’s image in the national football spotlight. It is important to our football program to schedule these types of games and we will continue to seek out series like this and the one with Duke in the future.”
Troy also announced today that the date of their 2014 home game against Duke will be Sept. 6 and that they will also host Abilene Christian on Sept. 13. ACU will be an FCS school in 2014.
