BOISE, Idaho â€" ESPN announced kick times for Boise State's first two games of the 2017 regular season Wednesday, including an afternoon start for the Sept. 2 home opener.
The Broncos will open their 2017 slate â€" and don their new UNIFORMS for the first time â€" under the light of the sun, kicking off against Troy at 1:45 p.m., on ESPNU. The kick time is the earliest for a Boise State home game on national television since the Broncos squared off against Colorado State at 1:30 p.m. on NBC Sports Network, Nov. 17, 2012.
It is also the earliest start for a Boise State home game at Albertsons Stadium, regardless of television, since the Broncos played UT Martin at 1 p.m., Sept. 7, 2013.
"We have half our kick times for 2017 home games already set, and none start later than 6 p.m.," Boise State Director of Athletics Curt Apsey said. "Game times are obviously something we have been hearing a lot about from our fans, so I am hopeful that we will see a packed stadium starting with Troy to kick off the season."
Boise State's nonconference tilt at Washington State will kick at 8:30 p.m. (MT), and air on either ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU. The network determination will be made after the Broncos' opening-week match-up against Troy.
