The conference also stated that the game is postponed, but if the two teams are not able to make up the game it will end up as a no contest.
Boise State won their conference opener at home against Fresno State last Tuesday, their next scheduled game is this coming Tuesday at Utah State.
This comes after the Boise State football team was not allowed to play in the Arizona Bowl on New Year's Eve because too many of the players tested positive for COVID.
