USF Bulls Agree to Home and Home Football Series with Boise State

(Tampa, FL) The USF Bulls will play a home and home football series with Boise State beginning in 2025 Vice President of Athletics Michael Kelly announced today. The Bulls and Broncos will meet for the first time on Aug. 30, 2025 in Raymond James Stadium. USF will travel to the famous blue turf in Boise, Idaho on Sept. 11, 2027.

“Boise State is a very exciting addition to our football schedule and one I believe will have national interest,” Kelly said. “The Broncos have a highly successful program that has been prominent on the national stage over the last two decades, and I think our student-athletes and fans will look forward to two high quality games and a trip out west to compete on the blue turf.”

USF also announced other schedule adjustments: A return game in Tampa vs. San Jose State, originally slated for the 2023 season, has been moved back to Sept. 20, 2025 in Raymond James Stadium. The Bulls visit to Northern Illinois, originally set for Aug. 30, 2025, will be moved to Sept. 25, 2027 in DeKalb, Illinois.

USF’s 2025 season non-conference schedule now contains games vs. Boise State (Aug. 30), at Florida (Sept. 6) and vs. San Jose State (Sept. 20), with one date remaining to be filled.

The Bulls and Broncos have never played against each other in football and USF has never played in the state of Idaho. The 2027 game in Boise, Idaho will mark just the fifth game for USF in the west. The Bulls will play at BYU in 2021 in the first western locale game on the schedule since USF won at San Jose State in 2017.

Boise State has played in 18 bowl games and won 12, including a 3-0 mark in Fiesta Bowl appearances, while claiming 19 conference titles. Entering head coach Bryan Harsin’s sixth season in 2019, the Broncos have won at least nine games every year under Harsin and compiled a 52-15 record in his tenure. The Broncos posted a 10-3 mark last season, losing in overtime to No. 25 Fresno State in the Mountain West championship game.

USF currently has 13 scheduled non-conference games vs. Power 6 opponents over the next eight seasons (through 2026) in addition to home-and-home series vs. Boise State (2025 & 2027) and BYU (2019 & 2021).

The Bulls will play six of those games vs. ACC opponents, including contests vs. Georgia Tech (2019), N.C. State (2021 & 2024) and Louisville (2022, 2024 & 2026). Future schedules also include dates vs. SEC foe Florida (2022, 2023 & 2025), Big 12 opponent Texas (2020, 2022 & 2024) and Big Ten foe Wisconsin (2019).
