The Buffaloes will face off against Idaho State in 2016 and Northern Colorado in 2017.

Troy Babbitt-USA TODAY Sports

The Colorado Buffaloes have completed their future football schedules through the 2019 season. With the addition of Idaho State in 2016 (combined with CSU and a road game against Michigan) and Northern Colorado in 2017 (combined with CSU and a road game against San Jose State), both in Boulder, Rick George and the athletic department can now turn their attention to a whole new decade.

From CUBuffs.com:

Idaho State University completes CU's 2016 schedule, while the University of Northern Colorado fills out the Buffs' 2017 slate.

The Buffaloes will host Idaho State on Sept. 10, 2016, as the Bengals will be the first school from the state of Idaho to ever visit Boulder; for that matter, ISU will also be the first-ever opponent CU will play that hails from the Gem State. The schools signed a one-game contract, with television rights belonging to CU and the Pac-12 Conference, which will also provide the game officials. In return, Idaho State will receive a payment of $500,000.

Northern Colorado will make its first trip to Boulder since 1933 when the Bears head south to visit on Sept. 16, 2017. That also is a one-game contract, with CU and the Pac-12 owning the broadcast rights and the officials to come from the Pac-12. CU will compensate UNC in the amount of $350,000, and the Greeley school also will be provided 1,700 tickets at various prices that it can sell and retain the proceeds (currently estimated at $30 and $50, which could net UNC an additional $75,000).
