Missouri will pay the University of Idaho a lump sum of $1.3 million for its participation in a football game Oct. 21, 2017, at Memorial Stadium.
MU athletics on Friday announced the game, which rounds out the 2017 schedule.
The Vandals, whose game at Florida last season was rained out, were scheduled to play the Gators again in 2017, but that game has been pushed into a future season, according to the Spokesman-Review.
Idaho rejoined what is now the Football Bowl Subdivision in 1996 and joined the Sun Belt Conference as a football-only member in 2014.
The Vandals were banned from the postseason last year after failing to meet the NCAA’s Academic Progress Rate in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012, but that ban was lifted in early March.
Missouri’s home nonconference opponents for 2017 are Missouri State, Purdue and Idaho, with a road game at Connecticut.
The Tigers’ 2015 schedule includes Southeast Missouri and Connecticut at home, a Nov. 14 game against BYU at Arrowhead Stadium and a road game at Arkansas State.
Missouri opens the 2016 season at West Virginia and hosts Eastern Michigan, but two nonconference opponents remained unfilled for that season.
The Tigers will pay Southeast Missouri and Missouri State a total of $1.21 million for games in 2015, 2017 and 2019.
