Traditions
The Blue Turf
Bronco Stadium, which has been the home of Boise State football since 1970, is one of the most recognizable facilities in the nation, thanks in part to its distinctive blue playing surface. Boise State is the only Bowl Subdivision program that plays its games on a blue field. The first blue AstroTurf field was installed in 1986 and was replaced in 1995 and 2002. The school converted to FieldTurf for the 2008 season, with an upgrade added in 2010.
