Thursday, Sept. 14 marks the season conference opener for the Boise State Broncos, but university leaders say as of right now, Albertsons Stadium won't be anywhere close to full.

Tickets for Boise State Football are selling at the slowest pace in more than a decade.

Approximately 26,000 tickets have been sold for Thursday's game, but stadium capacity is just over 36,400. 

"We need the community to be out there to support this team because of the homefield advantage that it creates," said Brad Larondo, BSU Senior Associate Athletic Director. "So we're looking at all ways to try to get them into the stadium. We think the game experience is going to be tremendous. We feel like this team is extremely exciting to watch, based on the first couple of weeks of the season."

Single-game tickets are $79 in the main stadium, $59 in the south end zone and $39 in the north end zone. Thursday's game starts at 6 p.m.
