The Boise State football team has added a two-year series with Southern Miss to the schedule beginning next year, the schools announced Wednesday.
The Broncos will play in Hattiesburg, Miss., on Oct. 6, 2012. The Golden Eagles will play in Bronco Stadium on Sept. 28, 2013.
The schools will trade $200,000 payments as part of the deal.
The teams previously played in 2007 in Boise and 2008 in Hattiesburg — with Boise State winning 38-16 and 24-7. Southern Miss, which competes in Conference USA, was 8-5 last year.
Boise State has six home and six road games scheduled for 2012. The Broncos can add one more game because they play at Hawaii.
The Broncos have room for one more game in 2013, almost certainly a home game.
