Return of the black? Check out Boise State football’s color schemes for 2019 season

The last two Boise State football seasons have been missing it, but on Sept. 20 it will be back — a blackout at Albertsons Stadium.

The Broncos have not donned their black uniforms since Nov. 4, 2016, in a home game against San Jose State. The team altered its uniforms before the 2017 season and hasn’t sported black since. The Broncos certainly could for this year’s blackout against Air Force.

On Tuesday, the school announced its 2019 color schemes for all of its games so fans can dress accordingly.
