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.
