Boise State Broncos (0-0) vs Troy Trojans (0-0)
- Date: Saturday, September 3rd

Why is this game so important for BSU?
Outside of the match-up between #1 Alabama and #3 Florida State, the USA Today is calling the BSU vs Troy showdown one of the best games of opening weekend. Why? Because both the Broncos and Trojans went 10-3 last season and both quarterbacks have drawn a lot of attention in the pre-season.
Will I be able to watch this one on regular TV?
You sure can! Unlike last year, BSU's season opener is on ESPNU. Look for the game on Cable One (Ch 136,) DirecTV (Ch 208) or Dish (Ch 141.)
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! It costs $20 on game day to park there) Our parking lot at Townsquare Media is much cheaper pay lot option. It's a short half mile walk via the Greenbelt to Albertsons Stadium. This year there will also be FREE parking in Kristin Armstrong Municipal Park, Julia Davis, Ann Morrison Park (just beware that the Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic is also happening on Saturday) and Riverside Park. You just need to remove your vehicles from those parks by 3 a.m. on Sunday to avoid being towed.
Will someone give me a ride to the game?
Sure! The Bronco Shuttle for the 2017 season. They'll run every 15 minutes from 8th Street (between Idaho & Bannock,) 6th & Grove, 8th & Main and 8th & Broad. There's a new shuttle stop at Payette Brewing at River & 12th this season as well! The shuttle is free and starts running two hours before kickoff and will take you back Downtown for an hour after the game.
What color do I wear to the game?
Depends where you're sitting! This game follows the tri-color scheme and depending what section you sit in you should wear blue, orange or white. See the map to scope out your section HERE.
Where can I drink alcohol before the game?
The 10 to 10 zone where those 21 and up can drink from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. is back again this year. As long as you have your alcohol in a plastic cup within the zone you can do so in THIS area.
Can I still get tickets?
Yeah, Labor Day weekend hasn't helped Boise State sell tickets to the home opener. Single-game tickets range from $39-$79. You can buy them through Boise State's website, over the phone or the ticket office on game day.
