Product Description

BRONCO STADIUM & TACO BELL ARENA

MWP-IB15

BRONCO STADIUM: (a.k.a. "The Blue") is an outdoor athletic stadium on the campus of Boise State University in Boise, Idaho. Primarily used for football, it is the home field of the Boise State Broncos of the Western Athletic Conference. Bronco Stadium is widely known for its unorthodox blue playing surface, rather than the traditional green surface of all other major college and professional football fields. Since 1997, the Humanitarian Bowl (called the "MPC Computers Bowl" from 2004-06) has been held at the stadium. It holds the distinction of being the longest-running outdoor bowl game in a cold-weather venue.

Bronco Stadium is best known for its distinctive blue playing surface, nicknamed the Smurf Turf, and has been the only non-green football playing surface in major college football through the 2008 season. In fact, there are only a handful of non-green football playing surfaces in the nation. The others include three high schools: Barrow High School in Barrow, AK, Lovington High School in Lovington, NM, Hidalgo High School in Hidalgo, TX, and one university: the University of New Haven in West Haven, CT. Boise State's blue turf inspired the University of New Haven to install blue turf when they reinstated their football program in 2008. Chris Berman of ESPN has also called Boise's turf "The Blue Plastic Tundra," a joking reference to "the frozen tundra" of Lambeau Field.

TACO BELL ARENA: The Taco Bell Arena is a multi-purpose/multi-color indoor arena on the campus of Boise State University in Boise, Idaho. It is the home of the Boise State Broncos Basketball Team of the Western Athletic Conference and its current seating capacity is 12,820 for basketball. The arena is located on the east end of campus, between West Campus Lane & Cesar Chavez Circle, just northeast of Bronco Stadium. It is home to the Boise State Broncos basketball, wrestling, and gymnastics teams.
