Boise State Broncos Football History

Team History

The Boise State Broncos are a Division I FBS Football team based in Boise, Idaho. Initially founded in 1933 as Boise State Junior College, the Broncos have an overall record of 476–178–2.

 

From 1933 until 1969, Boise State was a junior college, and fielded a very successful football program, winning 13 conference titles and capturing the 1958 NJCAA National Championship.

Their winning pedigree is largely what helped them elevate to university status and join the NCAA in 1970.

After the 1970s

The Broncos team stats continued to flourish at the Division II and Division I-AA (now Division I FCS) levels throughout the 1970s and 1980s, eventually capturing a 1-AA National Championship in 1980. The program went four decades without a losing season until 1986.

 

That became a memorable year for the program, as it was the first season that their stadium (then called Bronco Stadium) had their now-famous Blue Turf installed. Before this, all Football fields in every level was traditionally green, whether they used grass or Astroturf. This eventually led to other programs coloring their fields three decades later, but the trend started with Boise State.

 

Boise State has continued to field a strong program for the last several decades. Since officially earning Division I-A (now FBS) status in 1996, the Broncos have won 14 conference titles, five division titles, and 20 bowl game appearances, with three BCS bowl games.

 

With wins in the 2006 and 2009 Fiesta Bowls, Boise State finished both seasons undefeated, and claimed itself National Champions despite not reaching the BCS National Title game in those years.

What Is the Highest Win Total in Boise State Broncos Program History?

The 2009 Boise State Broncos arguably were the best team in College Football that season, with a perfect 14-0 record under coach Chris Petersen. With the perfect record capped off by a 17-10 win over the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs in the Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Arizona, Boise State became the second school in NCAA Football history to win 14 games in a season, after the Ohio State Buckeyes of 2002. Boise State won their seventh Western Athletic Conference championship in eight years and had pulled off their fourth perfect season in the last six years. Head Coach Chris Petersen won his second Bear Bryant Trophy for Coach of the Year, becoming the first coach to ever win that award two times.

What Was the Worst Season in Boise State Broncos Program History?

The 1996 Boise State Broncos played with heavy hearts during a very difficult 2-10 season, which was their first year in Division I FBS (then known as Division 1-A.) Their coach to start the year, Pokey Allen, was into his fourth season leading the Boise State Broncos program when, two games into the season, Allen resigned from his duties due to his failing health. In 1994, Allen was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of muscle cancer. While fighting through for two years, his symptoms worsened, and he passed away at the end of the year. Allen was replaced by Tom Mason, and the squad went 1-9 the rest of the season, with the defense yielding an average of 38.6 points per game.

How Many Bowl Games Did Boise State Make?

The Boise State Broncos have made 20 bowl game appearances, with an overall record of 12 wins, seven losses and one no-contest due to weather issues during the game. Boise State’s most notable win in program history came in the 43-42 overtime classic against the favored Oklahoma Sooners in the Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Arizona. The Broncos blew a 28-10 lead with Oklahoma forcing overtime before Boise State scored a touchdown in the extra frame, and converted a game-winning two-point conversion.
