BOISE, Idaho – On Friday (Oct. 9) Boise State head wrestling coach Greg Randall announced the Broncos’ 2009-10 schedule, which boasts a trio of home duals that will be wrestled exclusively in Taco Bell Arena.
While the Broncos only host three opponents this season, all three will be wrestled on Friday evenings. Boise State will open its’ home schedule at 6 p.m. on Nov. 6 when the Broncos host the University of Montana-Great Falls. They will also host Montana State-Northern on Dec. 11 (7 p.m.) and Oregon State University on Feb. 12 (7 p.m.). Boise State’s dual with OSU will be featured in this year’s Beauty and the Beast event.
Boise State will wrestle in 13 regular season duals, which does not include a trip to the National Duals tournament in Cedar Falls, Iowa, Jan. 9-10. The Broncos will receive an early road test when they travel to Corvallis, Ore. on Nov. 22 to take on the University of Wisconsin and Oregon State.
The Broncos’ toughest Pac-10 Conference test will come in January, when the team faces five conference opponents on the road in just nine days. Boise State will start the road swing with duals at Cal-State Fullerton (Jan. 22), Cal-State Bakersfield (Jan. 23) and Cal Poly (Jan. 24). The Broncos will finish the grueling nine-day stretch with duals at UC Davis (Jan. 29) and Stanford (Jan. 30).
Boise State will open the 2009-10 season on Oct. 31 in Spokane, Wash. when the Broncos square off against North Idaho College.
