Boise State, Idaho basketball announce 2013, 2014 games in Boise
Boise State and Idaho announced a November 27, 2013 men's basketball game will be played in Boise's CenturyLink Arena, continuing the non-conference rivalry series for the third straight season. The matchup is listed as a neutral-site game and tipoff time will be announced at a later date.

CenturyLink Arena announced Tuesday that the schools signed a two-year contract to play the Wednesday before Thanksgiving 2013 and 2014.

The Broncos and Vandals were once members of the Western Athletic Conference and fans across the state could count on the teams meeting twice each season, once in Boise and once in Moscow.

Even though the schools now play in difference leagues, athletic officials have worked to keep the rivalry somewhat intact the last two years.

Boise State has won each of the last two meetings at neutral sites. The Broncos also hold a 52-35 advantage since their first tussle with the Vandals in 1971.

Season ticket holders from both schools will have first chance to buy tickets at a later date. CenturyLink Arena will be equally split between the two fan bases.

Idaho will play a second neutral-site game at CenturyLink Arena December 20, 2013 against Idaho State University. That game is scheduled for 7 p.m.
