Boise State's Bronco Stadium is America's #1 Best College Football Stadium

CNN Travel (November, 2011)

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.


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;
