‘Idol’ winner Jordin Sparks to hold post-scrimmage concert at Boise State

Boise State will cap its Spring Game for the football team and Bronco Day for the campus with a concert at Albertsons Stadium on Saturday.

Jordin Sparks, the 2007 winner of “American Idol,” will perform on the Blue after the Spring Game, which begins at 5 p.m. The concert is included with a $10 ticket to the scrimmage.

Fans 18 and under can get in free by wearing a No. 11 jersey in honor of former quarterback Kellen Moore, who will be celebrated at 5:11 p.m. Kickoff is at 5:15 p.m.

Sparks won “Idol” at 17. Her hits include “No Air” and “Battlefield.”

Dev is the opening act.

The concert begins shortly after the scrimmage. Fans will be allowed onto the field to watch the show. The concert will be held even if it rains, according to a school official.
