1. Buster Bronco
Buster Bronco has been the Boise State Broncos mascot since 1932 and is one of the best mascots in college sports. He was ranked #3 in Sports Illustrated’s 2007 mascot power rankings and was a nominee for the Capital One Mascot of the Year in 2008-2009. Buster Bronco really revs up the crowd with his antics, so be sure to look for him when attending a Boise State game.
2. The Corral
The Corral is the name of the rowdy student section at Boise State games. Boise State students are known as some of the loudest and most dedicated when it comes to college football, and it’s no different during hoops season. The Corral helps provide a lively atmosphere inside Taco Bell Arena, so enjoy the noise and atmosphere they create at a Broncos basketball game.
3. BSU Band
Like The Corral, the BSU Band also plays a significant role in the incredible atmosphere found at a Boise State basketball game. The band keeps the tempo high throughout the game and does an excellent job of giving cues to the student section.
4. Boise State-Idaho Rivalry
Boise State and Idaho haven’t met in a couple of years, but there is still a lot of bad blood between the two largest schools in Idaho. The hate between the two runs deep and it would take a long hiatus to cool down this rivalry, so make sure to get your tickets when the rivalry is renewed as you’ll be in for a good one.
5. Cheer and Dance Teams
The cheer and dance teams at Boise State do a great job of helping create a collegiate feel at Broncos basketball games. Both groups put on fantastic routines, so don’t miss them during your trip to Boise.
Hanging above the court are banners celebrating the program’s history. The banners honor all of the Broncos conference championships and NCAA Tournament appearances, so take them in when attending a Boise State game.
7. Boise State-San Diego State Rivalry
There have been lots of close contests between Boise State and San Diego since the Broncos joined the Mountain West Conference. The hard fought contests have helped create a great deal of animosity between players and fans of both programs, so don’t miss it when the Broncos and Aztecs square off in this budding rivalry.
