Boise State Announces 2007 Football Schedule

After winning what many call the most exciting college football game ever, what do you do for an encore? Boise State today announced their fall lineup today with 13 games on the agenda.

Boise State announced its 2007 football schedule today, a lineup that will include seven home games on the Blue Turf at Bronco Stadium. 

            The Broncos open the season on August 30 (Thursday) at home against Weber State.  The Broncos then take on traditional Pac-10 power Washington September 8th in Seattle.  It will mark the first time that the Broncos and Huskies have met on the football field.

The Broncos return to Boise for their final two non-conference games, taking on Wyoming September 15th in a rematch of the great 2006 game and then invite Southern Mississippi in for the first meeting between those two schools.

Boise State has a game with Bowling Green scheduled for September 29th, but that contest is very much up in the air.  Bowling Green bowed out of last year's game with Boise State and scheduling issues may force a repeat this year.

            The Broncos get their Western Athletic Conference season underway with two Sunday night games likely to be televised by ESPN.  On October 7th, Coach Chris Petersen's Broncos go up against Coach Hal Mumme and New Mexico State, and then longtime rival Nevada visits Bronco Stadium the following week.

While the early portion of the schedule may allow Boise State to get fat at home, Boise State must then play two tough road games in a row, Saturday October 20th against Louisiana Tech and Friday October 26th vs. Fresno State.  The Fresno game will likely be televised by ESPN, marking the seventh year in a row the rivalry will be played out before the nation.

            Boise State then entertains San Jose State on November 3rd before traveling to play improving Utah State on November 10th.  The Broncos host Idaho the following Saturday (November 17th) and then finish out the regular season in what promises to be a thriller against Hawai'i on Friday, November 23rd.  ESPN will also carry the Bronco-Rainbow Warrior game.

            Following is a complete 2007 schedule.  All dates are subject to change.  Times will be announced at a later date.
