Boise State University has announced on BroncoSports.com that the football program has signed two more home-and-home series. UConn out of the Big East and Louisiana-Lafayette out of the Sun Belt have agreed to games here-and-there with the Broncos.
Once again, a pattern of traveling east and south emerges. This first became a pattern this spring when signing these kind of deals for Boise State.
One of the best things about joining the Big East was going to be the exposure east of the Mississippi. However, with the Broncos now remaining in the Mountain West it appears as if the administration at BSU has made it a clear goal to make sure that kind of exposure still occurs.
The article published on BroncoSports.com indicates that the games will start in 2014 with the Ragin' Cajuns coming to The Blue that season and the Broncos traveling to Hartford, Conn. for the first of two.
The follow up games will be a trip to Louisiana in 2016 and a visit from the Huskies in 2018.
The agreement will have UConn and Boise State exchanging $250,000 for each contest while the Louisiana-Lafayette games will guarantee $200,000 per.
Both of these teams have decent football programs, but UConn will certainly be the most anticipated by fans.
