PROVO, Utah — Brigham Young University and Boise State University today announced the two schools have agreed to extend their football series an additional eight years.

Already scheduled to play four games from 2012-15, the new deal will extend the series through the 2023 season. Game one of the alternating series will be played in 2012 at Bronco Stadium in Boise, Idaho.

“Boise State has established itself as one of the premier football programs in the country,” said BYU director of athletics Tom Holmoe. “Playing the Broncos regularly makes a lot of sense for two regional opponents with great football traditions. We are excited about the series.”
 
Boise State and BYU have only met twice in football. The Broncos hold a 2-0 advantage over the Cougars with wins in 2003 and 2004.
