COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho -- The state Board of Education will leave the fate of the football rivalry between the University of Idaho and Boise State University up to the two schools.
The board voted Thursday to give Idaho's university and college presidents full authority over game schedules, responding to questions over future bouts between the Broncos and Vandals.
With Boise State's impending move to the Mountain West Conference, which leaves Idaho in the Western Athletic Conference, there's no longer a requirement for the teams to face off.
The Lewiston Tribune reports the board previously set policy that stipulated Boise State and Idaho would still schedule yearly matchups, even if their teams were in separate conferences.
The policy aimed to promote school spirit and community involvement.
