Boise State won’t sell tickets for the Mountain West football championship game unless it beats Utah State on Saturday night to secure a spot in the game. The Broncos would host.
Tickets would be $40 in most of the stadium and $20 in the north end zone. They will go on sale immediately after Saturday’s game if the Broncos win. Season-ticket holders would have until 9 p.m. Tuesday to purchase their current seats. Tickets for the general public also would go on sale immediately after the game.
Season-ticket holders should have received an email Tuesday afternoon with details, but they won’t be able to purchase anything unless the Broncos win.
Full-time students receive free tickets. Guest tickets would be $9. Those would be available next Monday and Tuesday.
Parking would be $10 for the general admission Norco, Manitou and Lincoln Garage lots, $20 for reserved spaces and $40 for RV parking.
The MW championship game is at 8 p.m. Dec. 6 and airs on CBS.
