How to watch Boise State play UTEP on Friday

The Broncos' home opener will air on one of the Fox Sports channels, thanks to the Mountain West Conference's new TV deal.

BOISE, Idaho — Editor's Note: The video above is from Boise State head football coach Andy Avalos' press conference on Sunday, Sept. 5.

After a close loss to the University of Central Florida on the road in week one, the Boise State University Broncos will return to Albertsons Stadium in week two to defend The Blue in their 2021 home opener against the University of Texas-El Paso.

It's been nearly 20 years since the Broncos and the UTEP Miners faced off but this unique non-conference matchup will likely be a refresher for newer members of Bronco Nation on Boise State's days in the Western Athletic Conference during the early 2000s. This week two game will also likely be a blast from the past for long-time members of Bronco Nation since Boise State will likely impose their will on both sides of the ball against a UTEP team that has struggled in recent years.

In one of the later kickoffs this season, the Broncos' home opener is set to start on Friday, Sept. 10 at 7:30 p.m. MT on Fox Sports 1. Scroll down to find channel information and other ways to keep up with the game.

The play-by-play announcer will be Alex Faust and Petros Papadakis will be the analyst for the game.
