Boise State is beefing up their upcoming non-conference schedule when on Thursday the school announced a home-and-home series with Cincinnati for the 2019 and 2020 seasons. While Cincinnati are no longer in a major conference since the American lost its auto-bid to a big money game, but that does not mean that playing Cincinnati is scheduling a poor opponent.
Also, who knows if Cincinnati will still be in the American since the Big 12 has been rumored to want them during the conference expansion-palooza.
That is exactly what Athletic Director Mark Coyle said about playing the Bearcats in the upcoming seasons:
"We're thrilled to add another home-and-home series against a high-quality opponent like Cincinnati to our schedule," Coyle said in a press release. "With Florida State and BYU also on the schedule in 2019 and 2020, Bronco Nation is going to have the opportunity to watch some great football.
2019 and 2020 could be the toughest non-conference schedule that Boise State has possibly ever played, and that can be said even before their fourth and final out of conference game is schedule.
In 2019, the Broncos visit Florida State and BYU and host Cincinnati and in 2020 they host Florida State and BYU and travel to Cincinnati. Who knows if that home game against Florida State will actually happen since it is still seven seasons away.
Here are those dates for the Broncos 2019 and 2020 seasons.
