GAME DAY GUIDE: Everything You Need to Know about Boise State vs Wyoming
What channel is the game on? Where should we park? We've got all the answers and more!
Boise State Broncos (4-2) vs Wyoming Cowboys (4-2)
- Date: Saturday, October 21st
- Kickoff: 8:15 p.m.
Why is this game so important for BSU?
It's been a LONG months since Boise State had a home game and a lot has happened since then! We toppled a Top 25 opponent and a berth in the Mountain West Championship game is still within reach...if we win against the Cowboys. Colorado State is currently in the drivers seat for the Mountain Division of the conference, but that's because Boise State's played one less conference game than they have. The Cowboys however, have the SAME conference record as the Broncos so we need to beat them to have any chance at the championship game this year.
And we want to win so we get a decent bowl game come December! After spoiling San Diego State's perfect record, Boise State's projected to go to the New Mexico Bowl in Albuquerque on December 16th against USATF. A second projection has the Broncos potentially meeting the Oregon Ducks (now THAT would be a great bowl game) in the Las Vegas Bowl.
Will I be able to watch this one on regular TV?
ESPN 2 this week, Bronco fans! Catch the game on Cable One (Ch 134,) DirecTV (Ch 209) or Dish (Ch 143.)
What time does the tailgate lot open?
The lot opens eight hours before kick-off on weekend game days, so make a day of it and make your way over to Albertsons Stadium starting at Noon!
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 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 on where you sit! It's Blue and Orange day, so make sure you check the seating map HERE so you're not that guy or gal wearing the wrong color on Saturday!
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?
Sure can! 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. Their goal is to sell out the stadium this game (and Elliot Hoyte's "fill the stands" campaign definitely helped) so don't wait to get your tickets.
