Boise State adds UConn, Louisiana-Lafayette
Boise State has reached home-and-home scheduling agreements with
Louisiana-Lafayette and Connecticut.
Athletic officials announced deals Wednesday that put both teams
on Boise State’s 2014 schedule. The Broncos will travel to UConn on
Sept. 13 then host the Ragin’ Cajuns one week later.
The deal sends Boise State to Louisiana-Lafayette for the 2016
season and brings Connecticut to Boise in the 2018 season.
Boise State was once on track to play UConn more frequently, but
the Broncos backed out of a commitment to join the Big East
Conference, opting instead to stay in the Mountain West.
Louisiana-Lafayette plays in the Sun Belt Conference and has
posted consecutive 9-4 seasons and postseason bowl victories.
The series get the Broncos closer to filling out nonconference
schedules through 2017.
