Preview The 2007 Boise State Football Team

After 15 days of practice by the Boise State football team and intense speculation by the fans and media, the public will be able to get a first-hand look at the new Broncos of 2007. The annual Blue & Orange "Game" is set for tonight at 6 in Bronco Stadium.

After 15 days of spring practice, the Boise State football team will play in the annual Blue & Orange Game tonight at 6 in Bronco Stadium.

The annual affair is actually more of a scrimmage than a game.  The team used to take on the Alumni in a game that was one of the most attended in the nation.  These days, the team scrimmages against itself following a developed script. Even without the game against the Alumni, this year's scrimmage is expected to draw 10-15,000. 

This year, the Bronco coaches have designed a scoring system that pits the offense against the defense in an even competition.  The offense will earn points for touchdowns, explosive plays (run of 12 or more yards or pass of 16 or more yards), three consecutive first downs, extra points and field goals.

The defense can score points with touchdowns, turnovers, three and outs, sacks, blocked field goals and extra points and with a sudden change (holding the offense to a field goal or no score when it started the possession inside the 35-yard line). 

Tickets for the spring game were included in your season ticket package last year if you bought season tickets.  Otherwise, they are $5 each, and will be sold outside entrance #4.  Due to Building A Better Blue Construction, all seating will be on the east side only via entrances #4 and #3.  Bronco Stadium parking will be open to the public at 3 this afternoon.

If you are unable to attend the spring game, it will be available to watch LIVE and On Demand on Bronco Vision.  For more information, see BroncoSports.com
