BOISE, Idaho — Boise State Athletics announced multiple additions and adjustments to the Broncos' future football schedule Wednesday, highlighted by a home-and-home series with Memphis. 

Back in January 2021, Boise State announced a 2030-2031 home-and-home series with the Tigers. Wednesday's announcement ensures Bronco Nation won't have to wait quite as long to see the matchup between Group of 5 powerhouses. 

The series begins in 2023, with the Broncos traveling to Memphis' Liberty Bowl Stadium. The Tigers visit Albertsons Stadium in 2026, with game dates yet to be announced. 

Additionally, Boise State Director of Athletics Jeramiah Dickey announced Boise State's home-and-home series with Rice is shifting to 2032 in Houston and 2035 in Boise. The games were scheduled for 2027 and 2029. 

The Broncos will face a current or future Power 5 opponent each year from 2022 to 2025. Boise State's schedule from 2022 to 2031 includes 21 matchups with current or future Power 5 members, or schools in the American Athletic Conference. 

"We continue balance our nonconference schedules so we can position ourselves for an opportunity to play in the best postseason games possible," Dickey said. "To maintain our status as an elite program, we want to face quality opponents and play at home as often as possible while striving for conference championships." 

The final adjustment to Boise State football's future schedule is a showdown with FCS frontrunner Eastern Washington at Albertsons Stadium in 2025. 

The Broncos' 2025 non-conference slate includes matchups with USF, Oregon, Houston and now Eastern Washington.
