BOISE STATE FOOTBALL
Bronco Stadium, 1910 University Drive, Boise
You can see the legendary blue turf. You can see a dog fetch a kicking tee. You can mingle with other fans tailgating pre-game. But the main reason fans flock to Bronco Stadium each fall is to see Boise State win - which it usually does.
The Broncos are 79-4 at home since 2000, the best winning percentage in the country. That success has led to larger and larger crowds, and increased seating capacity - a record 35,404 fans showed up per game in 2012.
The 2013 home schedule features Tennessee-Martin, Air Force, Southern Miss, Nevada, Wyoming and New Mexico.
Fans will also get new views inside the stadium, with a $22 million football complex set to be completed this summer in the north end zone and a recently-approved 60-foot-wide by 33-foot-tall video board also on the north side that the school hopes to install this year. A new logo will appear on the 50-yard line this season.
Who knows - maybe one of the youngsters who show up each home game will be a future Bronco star, like former Marsing and Boise State standout Shea McClellin, who attended Bronco games throughout his childhood.
"It's crazy out there," said McClellin, a first-round pick of the Chicago Bears in 2012. "It always means a lot to see so many people support us, and they always bring the energy."
