Boise State will make its television debut against Washington at 2 p.m. (PT) in a game filled with story lines. It will mark the return to Washington for Boise State first-year head coach Jim Thomas, who spent five years with the Huskies prior to putting on the blue and orange in December. The game will also be a follow-up to the Bronco-Husky meeting on the gridiron, Aug. 31.
Washington finished 12-8-7 last season and advanced to the NCAA Tournament where it fell to Auburn in the first round.
The Broncos will make the trip to Tempe, Ariz., for a 4:30 p.m. kickoff. Arizona State finished the 2012 season 10-9-2 and also suffered a first-round exit of the NCAA Tournament at the hands of Baylor.
The games will be Boise State's the first meeting with each of the two teams.
