HOW TO WATCH THE OPENER
Never miss a local story.
Boise State’s season opener at Louisiana on Sept. 3 will not be available on television in Idaho. ESPN, the rights holder, sub licensed the game to the American Sports Network, but prevented it from being seen in Idaho.
The game is available on ESPN3 and the WatchESPN app.
Fans can visit watchespn.com, if their TV or internet provider allows, and watch on a computer screen, or on a TV screen through an HDMI cable. The app can be downloaded via most streaming devices, such as Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, etc. It can also be viewed that way via cellphones and tablets.
Bob Behler (play-by-play) and former Boise State offensive lineman Pete Cavender (color) will call games for KBOI (670 AM) and KTIK (93.1 FM).
Coverage will begin five hours before kickoff on both stations and will also include postgame reaction.
Coach Bryan Harsin will be featured on “Coach Harsin Weekly.” The show will not be recorded in front of a live audience, instead taped in advance and airing at 7 p.m. throughout the season. The first episode is slated to air Tuesday, with most future episodes on Thursdays, except for Oct. 19 and Nov. 23 (Wednesdays). There is no show during the bye week.
The team will walk from the Student Union Building through campus to the Bleymaier Football Center north of Albertsons Stadium approximately 2 1/2 hours before kickoff of home games, letting fans get an up-close look at the team.
NO MORE HUDDLE
A new addition last season, “The Huddle,” will not resume after the Idaho State Board of Education voted in June it would not allow alcohol to be sold to ticketed fans at designated functions before games, unless there is a separate invitation issued to those fans.
It does not affect alcohol service at the Stueckle Sky Center at Albertsons Stadium, or the 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. tailgaiting zone where alcohol is allowed for consumption in designated areas around the stadium and on campus.
Boise State did say it will explore possibly re-opening “The Huddle” in November, but to what extent has yet to be announced.
Parking lots will be open eight hours prior to kickoff on Saturdays and four hours prior on Fridays.
The Bronco Athletic Association’s weekly Luncheon Series begins Monday at a new location, the sixth floor of the Stueckle Sky Center, with free parking in the west stadium lot.
The luncheons begin at noon, and in addition to Monday, will be held Sept. 12, Sept. 26, Oct. 10, Oct. 24 and Nov. 7. Harsin will speak at all but the Oct. 10 luncheon.
Tickets are available at broncoathleticassociation.com, and can be purchased for $17 in advance, or $20 at the door. A six-ticket pack can be purchased for $85.
The Bronco Luncheon Series features giveaways and appearances by Athletic Director Curt Apsey, current and former athletes, Buster Bronco and members of the Spirit Squad.
