BOISE -- The Boise State Broncos (3-0) will face off against the University of New Orleans Privateers (1-1) on Saturday November 23 at 10:00 a.m. MST in New Orleans, Louisiana.

This will be the first road game of the season for Boise State.

The Broncos are coming off a 86-68 win over Seattle University on Tuesday, while the Privateers are coming off a 54-81 loss against Lousiana State University.

This is the second meeting between the two teams. On December 23, 2012, Boise State beat New Orleans 67-51 in Las Vegas.

The game versus New Orleans probably won't be the farthest that the team will be traveling for a road game this season. After doing some searching, we found mileages listed between the cities in the Delta Airlines timetable, and for Saturday's game the team traveled (as they connected in Salt Lake City) 1,719 miles but come December 10, the team will be traveling 1,790 miles to Lexington, Kentucky (if they connect through Minneapolis) where they will face the University of Kentucky Wildcats. However, the miles traveled also depend on their final flight itinerary, and what city the team connects through to their final destination.

However, the team is no stranger to traveling. KTVB's Sports Director Jay Tust, ran into the team Thursday on the flight from Boise to Salt Lake City and talked to Coach Leon Rice about the traveling, before the team continued onto New Orleans.

"We got a lot of world travelers on this team, with four foreigners, and all of them seem pretty good," said Rice.

The radio broadcast of the game will be on the Bronco Radio Network, including 670 AM KBOI and also on Bronco Sports.
