Boise Idaho is #2 on 'America's Top College Football Towns' list!

Real Estate Agent with Silvercreek Realty Group

If you follow college football at all, you've most likely heard of the Boise State University Broncos and their infamous Blue Turf.  

BSU Broncos

They are currently ranked #3 on the AP and Coaches polls, and have had some memorable moments winning the 2007 and 2010 Fiesta Bowl games!  

The BSU Broncos are a fun team to watch, and it's very exciting to live in a community that supports it's team so well.  If you are out and about on game day, you will see Blue and Orange EVERYWHERE!  Many people are decked out in their team colors, cars and homes are adorned with BSU flags; it seems the whole Treasure Valley is cheering on the team.  

As an alumni of BSU, it's great to see the national attention the team has been receiving.  As a native Idahoan, I know that the we not only have a great team, but also a great community.  That's why I was so excited to see Boise Idaho recognized as one of 'America's Top College Football Towns'.  The article highlights some of the cultural activities to see while you are in Boise for a game.  Another thing you'll notice on your trip to Boise is the amazing people who live here!  This is evidenced by an email that was sent  to Boise Mayor Bieter by an employee of the Library of Congress.  His email praised the friendliness and respect of the Boise State fans during their visit for the Boise State/Virginia Tech game (which the Broncos won 33-30 btw!).  

Library of Congress employees James Lavelle's note follows:

Good morning, Your Honor,

My name is James Lavelle. I am an employee in the sales shop at the Library of Congress and we had the pleasure of hosting a great number of Boise State fans in the last 10 days. I was so impressed by the courtesy and respect with which they treated us and the Library that I felt the need to contact you.

At first I wondered why I was seeing so much orange and blue, then I remembered the football game with Virginia Tech. Everyday leading up to the game brought more and more orange and blue and with each interaction I was more impressed. I cannot remember a more polite, friendly, funny, respectful and decent group of visitors than the Broncos of Boise State.

I wanted you to know how proud you should be of the people of Boise who traveled to Washington, D.C., to support their football team. We would be honored to host them anytime and I personally look forward to one day visiting Boise.

Thank you for your time and have a nice day.

Hey Richard!  It's fun to hear that you watched the BSU v VT game.  It was an exciting game!  Hopefully you'll be able to see some more during the season!  

Elizabeth~Hope you had an awesome birthday!  

BSU's fan base is still growing.  We have only been in division 1-A team for 14 years, and our population base here is much smaller than most (the populaion for all of Idaho is only 1.5 million).  That said, it seems that the Broncos have fans all over the country!  In fact, BSUs game against VT became ESPNs most-viewed college football game. 

You both have a great week!
