Boise State's men's basketball team will play at Creighton on Nov. 28 as part of the annual Mountain West-Missouri Valley Challenge. The game will be in Omaha, Neb., home of the Bluejays.

Boise State defeated Indiana State 74-65 at Taco Bell Arena in the event on Dec. 3.

Creighton went 29-6 last year, losing to North Carolina in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Creighton will be led by Doug McDermott, a junior who was an Associated Press first-team All-American.
