BOISE, Idaho — 20th ranked Boise State Broncos are back on the blue Friday night hosting Air Force. The team has been a thorn in the Broncos side since BSU joined the Mountain West Conference.
Air Force defeated Boise State three straight years from 2014 to 2016 but the Broncos have won the last two and lead the all-time series against the Academy four games to three.
Air Force is 2-0 so far this season. The Broncos are on a quick turnaround following Saturday's big win over Portland State.
"We knew this is gonna be a short week playing Air Force too, which is not ideal if you're gonna have a short week," said head coach Bryan Harsin. "Don't have a short week against Air Force, they go into Colorado State and beat them I mean that's Pac 12. That's a pretty good crew right there."
The Falcons are coming into Albertsons Stadium after an impressive victory over Colorado.
If you are headed to the game tonight, Bronco Nation is being asked to black out the blue. The team is wearing their all-black uniforms for the first time since 2015. You can get your own replica black jersey here.
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.
Remember there will be enhanced security at tonight's #BoiseState football game. Come early to allow for time getting through Security. You play an active role in keeping campus safe. If you see something, say something! Kick is in less than 6 hours! #StaySafeBoiseState pic.twitter.com/sOjmFMnNhd— Boise State Public Safety (@BSUPublicSafety) September 20, 2019
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.
Kickoff is at 7 p.m. If you can't make it out to Albertsons Stadium, it will be airing on ESPN2.
