BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Boise State and Brigham Young have only met twice before, and it's been eight years since the last matchup.
But both teams are about to get to know each other a little better.
When the Cougars visit No. 24 Boise State (1-1) Thursday night, it will mark the first of a dozen games scheduled between the two programs over the next 12 years.
While fans may be enthused about a burgeoning rivalry between two schools just a five-hour drive apart, Bronco coach Chris Petersen takes a ho-hum approach.
Instead, Petersen is looking ahead, saying new rivals await when Boise State joins the Big East next year.
BYU (2-1) is looking for its first-ever win over Boise State. The Broncos knocked off BYU in 2002 and again in 2004.
