Boise State adds UConn, Louisiana-Lafayette
BOISE, Idaho -- 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.
