Bronco Stadium is an outdoor athletic stadium in Boise, Idaho, the home field of the Boise State Broncos of the Mountain West Conference. Since 1997, it has hosted the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl (Humanitarian Bowl from 1997-Jan. 2004 & 2007-10; MPC Computers Bowl from 2004-06), the longest-running outdoor bowl game in a cold-weather venue. Opened in 1970, Bronco Stadium is also a track & field stadium; it has hosted the NCAA track & field championships twice, in 1994 and 1999. The stadium is used extensively for local high school football.
Bronco Stadium is widely known for its unusual blue playing surface, installed in 1986 as the first non-green playing surface (outside of painted end zones) in football history and remains the only one among NCAA Division I FBS schools. It is located at the east end of the BSU campus, bordered by Broadway Avenue to the east, University Drive to the south, and the Boise River to the north. The elevation of its playing field is 2,695 feet (821 m) above sea level.
