New HD video board goes up at Bronco Stadium

Staff Pick

When Broncos fans jam into the stadium at Boise State University to cheer their team, all eyes are on the Smurf Turf--even if they're looking up. Installation of a new 2,187-square-foot high-definition video board began on Aug. 5 and was completed in time for the Broncos' faceoff with the University of Tennessee-Martin. The high-def screen, which measures 37.2 feet tall by 58.8 feet wide and cost about $2 million, was installed atop the Bleymaier Football Center, facing the inside of the stadium in the north end zone, by Boise-based McAlvain Construction. By comparison, the old board was 18 feet tall by 24 feet wide--one of the smallest boards of its kind among many Division 1 schools. Now the other teams can't make fun of us for our junior Jumbotron.
