Boise State University's Bronco Stadium was just ranked #1 on CNN Travel's list of America's Best College Football Stadiums.  Click here to view the full story.

BRONCO STADIUM: Boise, Idaho

Whether crashing the Bowl Championship Series (small schools just aren't supposed to be there) or asking your cheerleader girlfriend to marry you (on national TV) after upsetting Oklahoma in a bowl game, the Boise State Broncos like to make their own rules. Even Bronco Stadium's bright blue playing field -- sometimes called the "Smurf Turf" -- was the first non-green field in college football and remains the only alternative color in Division One. With a high-powered offense and a never-say-die attitude, little old Boise State is one of the NCAA's most entertaining teams to watch.

Team Tradition: The freaky blue turf.

Typical Chant: The call-and-answer, "And that's another Bronco" "First-down"

Biggest Rival: University of Idaho and, nowadays, anyone who says the Broncos don't belong with the big boys of college football.

Postgame Hangout: End Zone.

Stadium Capacity: Approximately 33,500; broncosports.com
