BOISE, Idaho - Boise State University and the University of Virginia have announced a home-and-home series in football for the years 2015 and 2017.
The Broncos will travel to Charlottesville, Va., Sept. 26, 2015, with the Cavaliers making the trip to Bronco Stadium Sept. 23, 2017.
Both schools will exchange a guarantee of $200,000.
This will mark the first time Boise State and Virginia have met on the football field, and just the third time the Broncos have played a team from the Atlantic Coast Conference.
"I think our fans will be extremely excited about the Broncos hosting an ACC school," Boise State Director of Athletics Mark Coyle stated. "We continue to work hard on scheduling home-and-home games against BCS opponents and a series like this with an east coast team will help spread the Bronco brand."
Boise State's first meeting against an ACC school was in the 2005 MPC Computers Bowl in Boise with Boston College posting a 27-21 victory. The Broncos evened their record against the league with a 33-30 defeat of Virginia Tech at FedEx Field in Landover, Md., to open the 2010 season.
