For the second straight season, Boise State and Idaho will play a men’s basketball game at CenturyLink Arena in Downtown Boise. This year’s game will be held on Nov. 27, the night before Thanksgiving.

The contract is for two years and the teams will meet on the day before Thanksgiving in 2014 as well.

The Broncos won last year’s meeting 78-68.

Unlike the football programs, which have not met since Boise State left the Western Athletic Conference for the Mountain West in 2011, the basketball teams have met each season. Idaho is in its final year in the WAC. The Vandals begin Big Sky play next season in all sports but football.

Game time and ticket information is expected to be released shortly.
