Boise State-BYU Men Renew Basketball Series
The Boise State men’s basketball team has scheduled a home-and-home series with BYU, the first time the schools have played on the hardwood in more than a decade.
Boise State will host the Cougars November 20th and BSU will return the favor and play in Provo next year although an exact date for the game has not been decided.
“This is a great addition to our non conference schedule, and a great series for basketball fans in our region,” head coach Leon Rice said.
The last time Boise State played BYU was Dec. 10, 2008, in Provo. The game ended a stretch of six-consecutive years in which the teams played.
BYU leads the overall series 4-9 but the Broncos won each of the last two meetings in Boise – Nov. 29, 2006 (72-68) and Dec. 29, 2007 (73-70).
Different story on the road where the Broncos have lost the last three meetings in Provo.
This week the Boise State women's basketball team also announced a renewed series with BYU and the Cougars and Boise State are in talks about extending the football series past 2023!
