      Great to see that Boise State & Marshall have scheduled a home and home series against each other. Those games should be a lot fun to watch.

      Boise State did a great job a few years ago getting the likes of Power 5 teams Florida State, Oklahoma State and Michigan State to agree to home & home series. Since then the it has been slim pickings. They are saddled with 2 dreadful southern rejects in Troy (losers to even Idaho) and Louisiana /Lafayette @ home along with AAC bottom dweller UConn and ACC weakling Virginia. In addition UTEP and Rice were the latest addition to their less than stellar non league schedule in future years. They still have surprising Washington State on the schedule for the next 2 seasons and traditional PAC 12 doormat Oregon State next year.

      It is a challenge to get teams to come to Boise to play in such a tiny stadium. Marshall does represent an improvement over Idaho State. Let us hope that with their weak Mountain West schedule that no more FCS teams are slated for the future.

        I agree. I love that we play BYU annually, but we need to get at least two more Power Five schools on the schedule each year.

        Doubt you’ll reply or even see this as it’s like 8 months past when you posted lol.
        Only way Boise State is going to get two power 5 teams is if they decide to do more 1 and done games. Boise State has lost a little bit of it’s lust in terms of National perception but a couple good years could easily bring that back. It may be a scenario where they schedule a lot of home and homes with Washington State and Oregon State. I’d also look at going for home and homes with Colorado and Utah.

        For me the key I would like to see is a lot of games against either the Big 12 or PAC-12 since those are the two conferences that one day will send Boise State an invite to their conference.

      Great to see these two schedule each other. Should be some very good games.

      This is a great home and home series. Not far from each other.

      This is a wonderful fan friendly series for both schools. Great scheduling!!!!

      Marshall makes way more competitive sense to be in the American than a Tulsa or Tulane, but unfortunately not from a TV market standpoint.

      Good scheduling. Why won’t Kentucky play Marshall? That would be even better, but UK are pussycats rather than wildcats when it comes to non-conference scheduling.

      I’m sure Gameday will be on-site for this much anticipated matchup.

        I know Greg is joking aboit GameDay; but move this game to a Tuesday or Wednesday night,and put it on ESPN U and it might turn out to be a very watchable game.

      App St. might very well be in CUSA by then.

        maybe not, but Marshall could soon join the American if that conference loses Cincy and UConn to the ACC, my projected replacements for those schools in the American are Marshall and UAB

      The ’94 game mentioned in the article was my first ever night game in Boone freshman year, and still my favorite to this day. Amazing game, can’t wait to restart the rivalry. Marshall was the first team I hated.
