    Boise State—home of the blue turf, trick plays and everyone's favorite BCS underdog.

    Outside of the major conferences, Boise State is a unique team with unique aspects.

    Everyone likes to root for the little guy, which is why Boise State is the complete package.

    Here are some reasons why Boise State is the best game-day experience.

The Blue Turf

    The smurf turf is what gives Boise State the most unique field in all of college football.

    Combined with the Broncos' blue uniforms, the blue storm is in full force during game time.

    Until the NCAA steps in and decides it's an unfair advantage, check out this bright blue oddity.

Trick Plays

    Who could forget the Statue of Liberty play that beat Oklahoma in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl?

    In the attached video clip, watch a pair of trick plays by the Boise State offense that knocked off one of the football superpowers, Oklahoma.

The Zoo

    When you're not watching the Broncos on a Saturday afternoon, why not check out what the town of Boise has to offer?

    Idaho isn't all potatoes, after all.

    Why not visit the Boise Zoo?

    Okay, so it's not too exciting. It's Idaho, after all.

    Allow me to geek out over the Boise State uniforms.

    Especially the all-blue, which when worn at home acts as camouflage.

    The bright orange isn't too bad on the eyes either.

    At least it isn't Oregon with three dozen different uniform combinations.

Perennial BCS Contender

    Every year, Boise State remains in the hunt for the BCS title.

    However, the pollsters do not give the Broncos the respect they deserve each year.

    It is teams like Boise State that make college football worth watching because of the possibility of the upset.

    However, they are always in contention, and possibly one year they will be good enough that they can no longer be turned away from the big dance.

    When attending a game at Boise State or anywhere else, tailgating is a must.

    However, at Boise State, the important aspect of tailgating, alcohol, is prohibited from the parking lot.

    That does not stop Broncos fans from partaking in their beverages, however.

    Tailgating is a must for any fan in preparation for a game.
