A new exhibit commemorating the 40th anniversary of the opening of Bronco Stadium was recently installed in the front exhibit windows of Special Collections on the second floor of the library. Construction of Bronco Stadium began in 1969, and it was dedicated on September 11, 1970, during the football game of BSU v. Chico State that BSU won with the final score being 49-14.
The stadium was built at a cost of $2.2 million and originally contained 14,500 seats. The exhibit is comprised of photographs, newspaper articles, programs, and other memorabilia on the stadium. Additional images of Bronco Stadium can be viewed in the digital collection Historic Boise State located on the Special Collections website.
