Marquee non-conference matchups are part of what makes college football awesome. Getting to watch teams prove themselves in matchups we don’t typically see is always fun.
Boise State and Oregon announced the scheduling of a three-game series today. The two programs have played three times before.
The three future games are scheduled for 2024-2026. The 2024 and 2026 meetings will be at Oregon, while Boise will host the 2025 contest.
Boise State and Oregon announce a three-game series. Two in Eugene (2024, 2026) and one in Boise (2025).

Back in May, we named Boise State-Oregon as a game we’d like to see become a yearly rivalry. It goes to say we are pretty happy to see these Northwest powers play each other.
Boise State has captured all three previous matchups against Oregon, most recently last year’s Las Vegas Bowl, which they won 38-28.
In 2008, the Broncos won a 37-32 thriller in Eugene. The following year, Boise State was victorious at home in a game most famous for LeGarrette Blount’s infamous post-game punch.
This series should be an entertaining one.
