Troy University has signed its second major home-and-home football series this calendar year as Troy and Boise State will meet in 2017 and 2018, Troy Athletics Director John Hartwell announced Tuesday. Troy announced a home-and-home series with Duke in January. 

Troy will open the 2017 season at Bronco Stadium in Boise, Idaho, on Sept.  2, 2017, and Boise State will make the return trip to Veterans Memorial Stadium to open the 2018 season on Sept. 1, 2018. 

"This is another marquee matchup that is exciting for both our fans and our football program," Hartwell said. "Boise State has been one of the most successful teams in the country recently and this series will further enhance Troy's image in the national football spotlight. It is important to our football program to schedule these types of games and we will continue to seek out series like this and the one with Duke in the future." 

Boise State will join a long list of non-conference opponents who have played at Veterans Memorial Stadium. Troy has hosted the likes of Missouri, Oklahoma State, Mississippi State and Navy in recent years and will play host to Duke in 2014. 

Hartwell also announced the addition of Abilene Christian to the 2014 non-conference schedule. Abilene Christian will move up to NCAA Division I affiliation and join the Southland Conference on July 1, 2013. The Wildcats will visit Veterans Memorial Stadium on Sept. 13, 2014. 

The rest of Troy's 2014 non-conference schedule includes a home game against Duke on Sept. 6 and road games at UAB on Aug. 30 and South Carolina on Nov. 22.
