Boise State offers $20 tickets to football vs. Air Force

Boise State announced Tuesday that it will sell tickets to Friday’s football game against Air Force for $20 each in honor of the team’s 20 seniors. The tickets are in sections 120-122, the northeast corner of the stadium.

The cheapest regular price for the game is $29 in the north end zone. Seats similar to the ones on sale go for $75.

This is the second straight week that the school has tried a sale to increase attendance. Last week, Boise State sold half-price tickets on Veterans Day. The attendance against New Mexico was 32,780, more than 800 more fans than showed up for the previous home game against Wyoming.

Boise State (7-3 overall, 4-2 Mountain West) needs to beat Air Force this week and San Jose State next week and have New Mexico lose one game to win the Mountain Division. A loss to Air Force would eliminate Boise State.

Air Force (7-3, 5-1) leads the Mountain. The Falcons can clinch the division by beating Boise State and having New Mexico lose once. Air Force plays at New Mexico next week.

The seniors will be honored 25 minutes before kickoff. The game is set for 7:30 p.m. but kickoff usually is a few minutes later.
