Video board: The HD board will be 37 feet, 2 inches tall and 58 feet, 9 inches wide. The old board is 24x18 the new one is five times that big. Boise State has said the new board will be operational by the Sept. 28 home game against Southern Miss, but it hopes to have it ready sooner.
Sound system: Boise State has spent many years trying to improve stadium sound. This time, its a complete overhaul a $260,000 new system that will be integrated into the video board.

The Broncos will enter the stadium from that end on game days.
