The Boise State Broncos and the Cincinnati Bearcats have scheduled a home-and-home football series for 2019 and 2020, both schools announced today.
Boise State will host the first game of the series at Bronco Stadium on Sept. 21, 2019. In the second and final game, the Broncos will travel to face the Bearcats at Nippert Stadium in Cincinnati on Sept. 26, 2020.
Barring a future meeting in the postseason, the 2019 contest will be the first ever meeting on the football field between Boise State and Cincinnati.
“We’re thrilled to add another home-and-home series against a high-quality opponent like Cincinnati to our schedule,” BSU Director of Athletics Mark Coyle said. “With Florida State and BYU also on the schedule in 2019 and 2020, Bronco Nation is going to have the opportunity to watch some great football.
Boise State now has three non-conference games scheduled for both the 2019 and 2020 seasons, and they are the same three opponents. In 2019, the Broncos visit Florida State and BYU and host Cincinnati, while in 2020 they host Florida State and BYU and travel to Cincinnati.
The addition of Cincinnati gives the Broncos another challenge on their future non-conference slate. In addition to BYU and Florida State, Boise State also has home-and-home series set against Connecticut, Michigan State, Virginia, and Washington State.
Boise State also announced today that they have added Idaho State to their 2015 football schedule. Boise will host the Bengals on Sept. 19, 2015.
Cincinnati now has three non-conference games set for 2019 and four in 2020. In 2019, the Bearcats are slated to travel to Ohio State, Miami (OH), and Boise State.
Their 2020 schedule, which is tentatively complete, features Boise State and Miami (OH) at home and Nebraska and Ohio on the road.
