                BOISE, Idaho - Boise State's conference football schedule for the next four years was announced today by the Mountain West.  Dates and times will be announced at a later date.

                Each of the 12 members of the league will play four home and four road conference games each season, and will play every Mountain West opponent home and away during each four-year cycle.  The conference only announced future schedules for the first four-year cycle (2013-16). 

                In 2013, the Broncos will host Air Force, Nevada, New Mexico and Wyoming at Bronco Stadium, and play Colorado State, Fresno State, San Diego State and Utah State on the road.  The home and away sites will switch in 2014.

                Boise State will not play Hawai'i, San Jose State and UNLV in 2013 or 2014.             

                In the second part of the four-year cycle, Boise State will host Air Force, Hawai'i, New Mexico and Wyoming in 2015, and travel to Colorado State, San Jose State, UNLV and Utah State.  Again, the home and away sites will switch for the 2016 season.

                The Broncos will not play Fresno State, Nevada and San Diego State in 2015 and 2016.

                The scheduling format was computer-generated and consists of five intra-divisional games and three cross-divisional contests annually. 

Intra-divisional opponents will alternate sites annually (three home/two away or two home/three away).  The three cross-divisional opponents will be the same in each two-year period, with the site alternating from year one to year two.  The three cross-divisional opponents who are missed initially will appear on the schedule in the second two years of the cycle, again alternating sites from year three to year four. 

                The entire four-year sequence repeats beginning in 2017 and will continue thereafter.

                This past month the MW directors of athletics formed two divisions based upon common geographic regions and traditional rivalries, while also creating the first league football championship game.  The inaugural MW Football Championship Game will be played Dec. 7, 2013, at the home stadium of the divisional champion with the highest BCS ranking.

                The following is Boise State's tentative football schedule for the next four seasons.
