Another week, another big home-and-home announcement on BroncoSports.com.

This time around it is an even bigger grab, even if it is six years down the road. Boise State University will travel to Tallahassee in 2019 to take on Florida State. In return, the Seminoles will come to Boise in 2020 according to the article.

The guaranteed monies announced are $400,000 per team, and it will be the first time these teams will meet on the football field.

Boise State athletic director Mark Coyle is quoted in the article as saying:

Scheduling a home-and-home series against a perennial top-25 program like Florida State is another step in growing our football program

With the signing of Florida State this week and last week's announcement about signing a home-and-home with Virginia, Boise State seems to be shifting its focus when landing new games. Bigger games against better quality opponents from large markets.

Those reasons are some of the key things that led Boise State to attempt a move to the Big East originally. It looks like the Broncos still will seek that kind of exposure, and the fans of Boise State will certainly be excited about it.

By the 2020 season you have to believe Bronco Stadium will be expanded even more, and the crowd will most likely be sold out and energized. In the mean time, the announcement has to excite the fan base, boosters, players, recruits, coaches and anyone else associated with the Broncos.

Expect more of these kind of announcements from the school, and expect the scheduling philosophy to benefit Boise State's progress and exposure.
