Big changes will get under way Monday at Boise State University's Bronco Stadium—both on and off the field.
Construction crews will start the installation on Aug. 5 of a massive, 2,187-square-foot high-definition video board, which will sit atop the newly constructed Bleymaier Football Center facing the inside of the stadium in the north end zone.
Boise State University got the go-ahead from the Idaho State Board of Education in May to build the new video board at a cost of up to $2 million. Boise-based McAlvain Construction won the contract to install the board.
Boise State officials have indicated that the board will be installed, at the latest, for the third home game of the season on Saturday, Sept. 28. But they're also hinting that, if all goes perfectly, the board may be in place for the home opener on Saturday, Sept. 7.
Meanwhile, the Boise State football team opens its fall camp Monday, Aug. 5, 26 days before the season begins on Saturday, Aug. 31 in Seattle, when the Broncos will meet the University of Washington. Between now and opening day, only one fall scrimmage will be open the public, on Sunday, Aug. 18.
