The Boise State football team opens the 2018 season Saturday at Troy — the first chance for fans to find out what this edition of the Broncos will look like.
But the game won’t air in one of the usual places. Instead, it will air on ESPNews.
That’s channel 207 on DirecTV, channel 135 on Cable One and channel 142 on Dish Network.
