And, if you've been meaning to buy season tickets for Boise State, it's not too late, either. Boise State is hosting a season-ticket open house Thursday.
Here's the release from the Broncos:
FOOTBALL SEASON TICKET OPEN HOUSE SCHEDULED FOR THURSDAY AT BRONCO STADIUM
A football season ticket open house is scheduled for this Thursday (Aug. 19) at Bronco Stadium for anyone interested in season ticket options for the upcoming 2010 Boise State football season. The event runs from 11am-7pm.
