Memphis football and Boise State have agreed to a second future home-and-home series, the Broncos announced Wednesday.

The Tigers are now scheduled to face Boise State four times between 2023 and 2031.

The new home-and-home deal begins at Simmons Bank Liberty Stadium in 2023, with the return game set for 2026 at Albertsons Stadium. Specific dates for those games have not yet been announced.

In January 2021, Memphis and Boise State announced a separate home-and-home agreement that would send the Broncos to the Bluff City on Aug. 31, 2030, and have the Tigers make the return trip on Sept. 13, 2031.

By adding Boise State to the 2023 schedule, the Tigers' non-conference portion is one step closer to completion. Memphis is due to travel to Arkansas State on Sept. 9, 2023, while it is scheduled to host Missouri on Sept. 23.

A road game at North Texas, scheduled for Sept. 16, was originally slated to be a non-conference game. But, earlier this month, the AAC announced North Texas (and five other Conference USA schools) would join the league as members on July 1, 2023.

Along with the road game against the Broncos in 2026, the Tigers are also slated for a home contest against Arkansas State (Sept. 5) and a road game at Arkansas (Sept. 19).
