The Idaho Vandals continue to adjust their future football schedules following an announcement that they are dropping down to the Football Championship Subdivision for 2018.
That announcement came shortly after the Sun Belt Conference declined to renew Idaho’s membership when it expires after the 2017 season.
Since then, San Jose State and Wyoming have both canceled games with the Vandals. Idaho later added future games with Washington State and Sacramento State.
FBSchedules.com has now learned that Idaho will play at Oregon State in 2021 and have finalized the cancellation of their future series with Nevada.
Idaho will travel to take on Oregon State at Reser Stadium in Corvallis on Sept. 4, 2021. The Vandals will receive a $675,000 guarantee for the game, according to a copy of the contract obtained from the University of Idaho via a public records request.
Idaho and Oregon State have met 43 times on the gridiron in a series that dates back to 1913. The Beavers lead the series 36-7 and have won three straight (1985-86, 2006).
The Nevada Wolf Pack were scheduled to host Idaho in Reno on Sept. 30, 2017 and then travel to take on the Vandals in Moscow on Sept. 30, 2019.
In a letter dated August 19, 2016 and signed by the Director of Athletics of both universities, the two schools stated they “mutually agree” to cancel their agreement.
Nevada is the third opponent to cancel future football games with Idaho due to their move to the FCS. Last month, we reported that San Jose State had canceled their series, and the Star-Tribune reported that Wyoming will drop Idaho from their 2018 schedule.
