The Boise State men's basketball team will visit the Kentucky Wildcats on December 10, 2013.
The game will be played at Rupp Arena in Lexington, and will mark the first-ever meeting between the two schools.
"We think we're going to have a pretty good team coming back, so we want to give them some high-level games and high-level opportunities," said head coach Leon Rice earlier this off-season.
There are no plans for Kentucky to return the game by playing in Boise at a future date.
"It's hard to get games in Boise," explained Rice. "We want to play top-50 schools and a lot of those don't want to do home-and-homes with Boise State."
Despite missing the NCAA Tournament last season, Kentucky is the top-ranked team in the country in a prominent preseason poll. Boise State is ranked 25th in that poll.
The rest of Boise State's schedule will be released later this summer.
