BOISE, Idaho — The Boise State Broncos held their annual spring scrimmage Saturday, selling out all 6,500 tickets to give fans a chance to see the team led by new head coach Andy Avalos.

Fans haven't had the opportunity to watch the Broncos in person for a while because of the pandemic.

"It feels normal. We didn’t have any normal anything last year, and it’s just nice that they allowed people to come out," said Ron Crowe

The scrimmage saw the return of running back George Holani who missed most of last year with injuries and also set the stage for the battle at the quarterback position.

Hank Bachmeier started both of the last years and he threw one touchdown and one interception. USC transfer Jack Sears played for BSU last year before getting hurt.

The scrimmage provided a way for fans to get excited as BSU welcomed back alumni and the Boise State faithful got their first look at this new team.

“There is a lot of buzz, a lot of excitement about this team, not only the players but also the coaching staff," said Crowe. "They are going to be good. It’s going to be exciting.”
