COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Texas A&M softball head coach Jo Evans announced today that the Aggie softball team will add a three-game nonconference series with Boise State to the 2012 schedule to make up for earlier games that were lost due to inclement weather.
The series will consist of three single games, May 10, 11 and 12. Each game will have a 4 p.m. first pitch at Mountain Cove Softball Field in Boise, Idaho.
“We are looking forward to making the trip to Boise,” Evans said. “This series will give us the opportunity to make up three games that we lost to weather and also give us another challenging opponent in preparation for postseason.”
This will be the first-ever meeting between the Aggies and the Broncos, who were the Western Athletic Conference Runners-Up last season and now play in the Mountain West Conference. Boise State softball is in just its fourth year of competition and will graduate its first-ever four year class this spring. Despite being a young program, the Broncos have already made a name for themselves, earning a 33-20 record last season with a 15-6 conference mark and sweeping ranked Fresno State in a three-game series in 2011. This year Boise State is 26-13, including a perfect 8-0 at home. The Broncos are on a national-best active home winning streak of 23 games.
The Aggies continue Big 12 play today as they travel to Waco, Texas, to face No. 22 Baylor in the second game of the three-game conference series between the regional rivals. A&M leads that series, 1-0. To learn more about Texas A&M softball, log on to AggieAthletics.com or follow @AggieSoftball on Twitter.
