Boise State Broncos (1-1) vs New Mexico Lobos (1-1)

Why is this game so important for BSU?
BSU’s trying to bounce back from an epic collapse that led to them losing to Washington State in triple overtime this past weekend. BSU starting quarterback Brett Rypien was injured in that game and according to Coach Harsin’s press conference on Monday, he’s questionable for Thursday. He be evaluated through the week, but we’ll likely see more of KU transfer Montell Cozart. It’s also Boise State’s first Mountain West Conference game of the season.

Where should I park for the game?
Various lots near Boise State will have parking available for a fee. I usually park at the US Bank on Broadway (Which I found out wasn’t as cheap as I thought it was!

This year there will also be FREE parking in Kristin Armstrong Municipal Park, Julia Davis, Ann Morrison Park and Riverside Park. You just need to remove your vehicles from those parks by 3 a.m. on Friday to avoid being towed.
