BOISE, Idaho — It's homecoming week at Boise State and the 14th ranked Broncos are hosting Hawaii at Albertsons Stadium Saturday night.

Boise State is hoping to get another strong performance from quarterback Hank Bachmeier, who has led the team to a 5-0 record so far. The freshmen has thrown for nearly 1,500 yards and eight touchdowns.

Coach Harsin say he likes the progress he's seeing but there is always room for improvement, as Bachmeier also has three interceptions for the season.

"There is still a lot there is still a lot that he is learning as the season goes on there is a lot he is getting better it and to me I think he’s doing a great job," said Harsin. “Red zone I think Tom Brady’s percentage drops in the red zone it is hard when you get down there you got to throw the ball you can’t be a butcher you have to be a surgeon.”

The Hawaii defense gives up an average of 21 points per game but the Rainbow Warriors have gone 2 and 1 against PAC 12 schools this year. They are also coming off a bye week after beating Nevada 54 to 3.

Kickoff is at 8:15 Saturday night. The game will also be airing on ESPN 2. The color scheme for the game is blue and orange depending on your seat location.

A homecoming parade is starting at 5 p.m. and begins at University Drive at the B Plaza and ends at University and Denver.

As always, game day parking can be a little hectic. Parking enforcement officers will be patrolling the campus and nearby neighborhoods. Remember, you can always park in Julia Davis or any of the other Greenbelt parks, but cars left overnight will be towed.

If you want to avoid the parking headaches, a free downtown shuttle is available. Gameday shuttles start two hours before kick-off and pick-up locations are available at five different spots. Buses run every 15 minutes and resume immediately following the game. You can also save some hassle by parking in a downtown garage, it will only cost you six dollars with a game ticket.
