Boise State football unlikely to face Idaho Vandals anytime soon

Boise State athletic director Mark Coyle said Wednesday that the Broncos likely will not be facing the Idaho Vandals anytime soon.

On the subject of football scheduling, Coyle said Boise State is close to filling in its openings in 2015 and 2018.

When asked if Idaho would be on the slate in the near future, Coyle said “(Idaho AD) Rob (Spear) and I haven’t had any conversations lately about a series.”

Coyle said Boise State will stick to its own scheduling “philosophy” and will “continue going in that direction.”

Boise State and Idaho have not played since 2010 after playing annually since 1971.

For the 2015 and 2018 openings, Coyle said “We’re close on some of them, we’re in contract stages, and hopefully we have announcements coming in a few weeks.”

Coyle said the Mountain West athletic directors will meet in late April in Phoenix, and he’s hopeful the 2013 schedule will be set then.
