Boise State's 2018 football schedule released

The schedule includes the Broncos' first-ever meeting with Oklahoma State, the first game of a home-and-home series.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The Mountain West Conference on Thursday announced its 2018 football schedule, including home and away matchups for Boise State.

The schedule includes a total of 97 games, 48 of which are conference matchups with each team playing four home and four conference games.

The Broncos will open the season Sept. 1 at Troy, followed by the home-opener against Connecticut the next week.

The team will travel to Stillwater, Okla., on Sept. 15 for the first game of a home-and-home series against Oklahoma State of the Big 12. It will be the first-ever meeting between the two teams, which both finished the 2017 season ranked in the Top 25 (BSU was No. 22, OSU was No. 14).

BYU will travel to Boise on Nov. 3, rounding out the Broncos' nonconference schedule.

Conference play begins on Sept. 29, as Boise State takes on the Wyoming Cowboys in Laramie.

Other conference away games include Nevada, Air Force and New Mexico, while the Broncos will face San Diego State, Colorado State, Fresno State and Utah State at home.

It's important to note that while matchups are set for each given week, game days could change depending on TV scheduling. For example, a game listed for Saturday could get moved to a Friday if ESPN or CBS Sports decides to feature it that night.

The only kickoff time set for the Broncos as of now is the home game against Colorado State on Friday, Oct. 19. That game will kick at 7 p.m. MT and will air on ESPN2.

More Saturday games are expected to shift to weeknight games as the networks solidify their schedules.
