A note about Thursday: At 10 a.m., the USA Today Coaches’ Poll will be unveiled. At the same time, Brian Murphy and I will be holding a live chat. So be sure to stop by at 10 tomorrow.


Boise State has moved the fall scrimmage to Sunday, Aug. 18. It begins at 7 p.m. at Bronco Stadium. The previous date appeared in today’s newspaper.


Boise State on Wednesday announced color schemes for its fans for this football season.

2013 Color Schemes

If you can’t see the picture above, click here for full version.

There will be tri-color schemes for Tennessee-Martin and Nevada, blue-and-orange schemes for Wyoming and New Mexico, a blue-out for Air Force and a fan-selected scheme for Southern Miss.

The Air Force game is Boise State’s Mountain West opener and marks the end of the league’s ban on the Broncos wearing all-blue uniforms at home.

Visit throughout the day Aug. 14 to vote for your favorite scheme for Southern Miss. A blackout is a possibility.

On the road, fans are asked to wear orange except for two games — Colorado State and San Diego State, when the scheme is blue.
