Bronco Stadium is an outdoor athletic stadium on the campus of Boise State University in Boise, Idaho. Primarily used for football, it is the home field of the BSU Broncos of the Western Athletic Conference, and the city's four public high schools. Since 1997, the stadium has hosted the Humanitarian Bowl, which holds the dubious distinction of the longest-running outdoor bowl game in a cold-weather venue; the game is usually played in late December.

Smith led Boise, as BJC, to multiple post-season bowls, including the 1958 national junior college championship, and compiled an overall record of 156-26-8 (.848), which included five undefeated seasons and 16 conference titles. He was also the baseball coach for 17 seasons and served as basketball coach for a season at the school. Smith hired Tony Knap to replace himself as football coach in 1968.

History

Bronco Stadium from Broadway & University

Ground was broken in 1969 to replace the original Bronco Stadium, a small facility built in 1950 for junior college football. The football program moved up to Division II in 1968 and the new $2.2 million concrete stadium opened in 1970 with a seating capacity of 14,500. The first game at the stadium was on September 11th, a 49-14 victory over Chico State. The original playing field was green Astroturf, and was configured in the traditional north-south direction. For its first five seasons, the stadium consisted of two sideline grandstands, the west side having an upper deck and the press box.

Following the 1974 season, an upper deck was added to the east side, adding 5,500 seats (and symmetry) to the stadium. The permanent seating capacity grew to 20,000 for 1975, with up to 2,600 temporary seats available for end zone seating for bigger games. The green astroturf was replaced with the same in 1978 as the Big Sky Conference and the Broncos moved up to the newly formed Division I-AA. The Broncos moved to the Big West Conference and Division I-A in 1996, and the stadium was expanded again. The two-tier grandstands were extended around the corners of the south end zone, raising the permanent seating capacity to 30,000 in 1997.[5] See also: 1973 in sports, other events of 1974, 1975 in sports and the list of years in sports. // Auto Racing Stock car racing: Richard Petty won the Daytona 500 NASCAR Championship - Richard Petty IROC Championship - inaugural year won by Mark Donohue Indianapolis 500 - Johnny Rutherford USAC Racing - Bobby Unser...

The Blue Turf

In 1986, after sixteen seasons of playing on standard green Astroturf, BSU installed the bright blue synthetic surface (often referred to as “Smurf Turf”) for which Bronco Stadium is best known. It was replaced with the same in 1995, as a part of a two-year major stadium expansion which brought the seating capacity to 30,000 seats, as BSU transitioned to Division I-A status (from Division I-AA's Big Sky Conference).

By 1997 the sideline grandstands had been extended to wrap around the corners of the south end zone, along the orange-colored Ed Jacoby Track. Also added were the Allen Noble Hall of Fame Gallery and the Larry and Marianne Williams Plaza to the southwest corner. Both are attached to the Nicholson-Yanke Athletic Center, an original part of the stadium, as is the Fedrizzi Fitness Center Annex (1988/2004) and the Bronco Football Complex (2000). Since the running track is still in use, the end zone seats remain temporary.

Blue turf myths

There are many myths about the blue turf. Two of the most prevalent are:

  • There is an NCAA rule banning turf colors other than green, but BSU's field is allowed to remain blue under a "grandfather clause".
    • The NCAA has no such rule; any school may paint its field any color other than green if it wishes. Though painting the end zones is common, and schools have wide latitude in how to do so (for example, Neyland Stadium has its end zones painted in its distinctive orange and white checkerboard scheme), only BSU has chosen a non-green color for the field itself.
  • Mistaking it for water, birds have flown into the blue turf.
    • This has never been confirmed. In 2007, Broncos coach Chris Petersen claimed to have found a dead duck on the field, though it is unclear whether or not the duck had mistaken the turf for water.[1]

A grandfather clause is an exception that allows an old rule to continue to apply to some existing situations, when a new rule will apply to all future situations. ... Neyland Stadium is a sports stadium in Knoxville, Tennessee. ... Chris Petersen (born October 13, 1964) is an American college football coach, currently the head coach of the Boise State Broncos. ...

Future expansion

As the Boise State football program saw a rise to prominence in the early 2000s, Bronco Stadium became increasingly insufficient. The school is planning to build a new 3-story complex on the stadium's west side that would feature levels for a new press box, luxury suites, lounges, and club seating (in descending order). This article is about the first decade of the 21st century. ...


Another plan is to complete the stadium's horseshoe in the south end zone and round the corners in the north end zone while leaving it open, so the stadium will still have the view of the Boise Foothills. With the additions, Bronco Stadium's capacity is expected to increase to around 50,000. The first of the planned additions, the press box, was approved funding in January 2007. The plans were announced around the time the university announced plans to build a new indoor practice facility.


The practice facility, which officially opened in February 2006, is known as the Cavin-Williams Sports Complex and is located just outside of the north end of Bronco Stadium. The press box facility began construction on February 11, 2007, and is expected to be completed before the 2008 football season.


Home Dominance

During Boise State's recent streak of conference championships, Bronco Stadium has proved to be a tough place for opponents. The Broncos are 58-2 at home since the 1999 season with the only losses being to Washington State in 2001 and Boston College in the 2005 MPC Computers Bowl. The Broncos have not lost a home conference game since the season finale in 1998 (34 in a row). The Broncos are 55-1 in regular season home games since 1999. The Broncos are currently on a 43 game regular season home winning streak.
