Boise State, Washington to Play 2-Game Series

Boise State and Washington have agreed to a two-game football series beginning in 2013, according to an official release from the University of Washington athletic website.

The University of Washington is reporting that it has agreed to a two-game football series with Boise State beginning in 2013.

According to the official athletic site for Washington, the Broncos and Huskies will play September 7, 2013 in what will be a renovated Husky Stadium.

"Historically, the Huskies at Husky Stadium have taken on great opponents," Huskies coach Steve Sarkisian said. "Having the first game at Husky Stadium against Boise State is something special."

Washington is scheduled to visit Bronco Stadium in 2015, with that game scheduled for September 19th. "This is a natural series for the two schools," Boise State Director of Athletics Gene Bleymaier said. "I know are fans will be excited about being able to see a quality opponent like Washington play on the blue turf, and I'm sure we will have a large contingent of fans making the trip to Seattle."

The Huskies have been reborn under Coach Sarkisian, compiling a 7-6 record despite one of the toughest schedules in the nation this past year. Washington shocked Nebraska in the Holiday Bowl in quarterback Jake Locker's final collegiate game.

Washington and Boise State met once before, when Locker led UW to a win over the Broncos in 2007 in Seattle.
