The Boise State Broncos and Oregon State Beavers agreed to a home-and-home series all the way down the road with a home-and-home in 2022 and 2023.
Oregon State will host the first game of the series at Reser Stadium in Corvallis, Oregon, on Sept. 3, 2022. The second game will be played on Sept. 2, 2023 at Albertsons Stadium in Boise, Idaho.
The two teams will still have one game to play to finish up a prior two-game series and that will take place at Oregon State on Sept. 24, 2016.
These teams are no strangers to each other as they have played eight total times with the Beavers holding an 5-3 edge over the Broncos, and the most recent time being in the 2013 Hawaii Bowl which saw Oregon State topping Boise State, 38-23.
It is clear as to why Boise State scheduled Oregon State: College Football Playoff. Adding tough opponents is clearly an emphasis with the playoff committee, and while the Beavers are not an unbeatable opponent they will add a boost to strength of schedule.
"Strength of schedule is obviously something that is extremely important under the new postseason structure of college football," Boise State AD Mark Coyle said. "Boise State has always made an attempt to schedule high-quality non-conference opponents, and we will continue that trend going forward."
"It is also our goal to schedule home-and-home series so that Bronco Nation gets the opportunity to see these types of games at Albertsons Stadium."
