Boise State is Fiesta Focused http://news.boisestate.edu/update/2014/12/08/boise-state-fiesta-bowl-bound/ http://news.boisestate.edu/update/2014/12/08/boise-state-fiesta-bowl-bound/#comments Mon, 08 Dec 2014 13:51:54 +0000 http://news.boisestate.edu/update/?p=593902 8368523The nationally ranked No. 20 Boise State Broncos will meet No. 10 Arizona at the VIZIO Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Ariz., on New Year’s Eve, Dec. 31, the College Football Playoff Committee announced Sunday afternoon.

The VIZIO Fiesta Bowl, held at the University of Phoenix Stadium, will kick off at 2 p.m. MT and be televised on ESPN.

Boise State fans can find all information on tickets, travel packages and the game itself on the VIZIO Fiesta Bowl Central page.

It is Boise State’s third trip to the Fiesta Bowl in nine seasons, and the 13th-straight bowl appearance for the Broncos, tied for seventh-longest in the nation. The Broncos previously played in the Fiesta Bowl following the 2006 (defeating No. 7 Oklahoma, 43-42 in overtime) and 2009 (defeating No. 4 TCU, 17-10) regular seasons.

Boise State (11-2) earned this season’s bid to the VIZIO Fiesta Bowl by capturing its first outright Mountain West title Saturday night with a 28-14 victory over Fresno State in the Sports Authority Mountain West Football Championship, and being the highest-ranked “Group of Five” team in the College Football Playoff Top 25. The Broncos ended the regular season as the only “Group of Five” team in the CFP Top 25.

This year’s VIZIO Fiesta Bowl will mark Boise State’s first meeting with No. 10 Arizona (10-3). The Wildcats went 7-2 in Pac-12 play in 2014, capturing the conference’s South Division title before falling to Oregon in the Pac-12 Championship Game on Dec. 5.

New Security Measures Planned at Albertsons Stadium http://news.boisestate.edu/update/2014/08/12/new-security-measures-planned-albertsons-stadium/ http://news.boisestate.edu/update/2014/08/12/new-security-measures-planned-albertsons-stadium/#comments Tue, 12 Aug 2014 22:33:17 +0000 http://news.boisestate.edu/update/?p=556662 StadiumBoise State University is strengthening security measures at Albertsons Stadium this fall to ensure that Boise State fans, students and student-athletes continue to enjoy Bronco football in one of the safest environments in the country.

In keeping with best practices for venue safety, Bronco fans will be encouraged — but not required — to leave their bags at home or in the car this year, or use a sturdy, clear tote bag similar to those now popular at NFL stadiums and other professional sports venues.

Prior to entry, fans will pass through metal detectors, and any bags carried in will be subject to search. Re-entry will continue to be allowed, but fans will pass through security to re-enter. Security officials will roll out these changes through the season to ensure a smooth and effective transition.

“Our highest priority is the safety and security of our fans, students and student-athletes,” said Vice President for Campus Operations and General Counsel Kevin Satterlee. “But we also place a premium on our fans and families having a great time and enjoying some of the best college football the NCAA has to offer. These new measures strike that balance in a way that is working around the country.”

The university has been taking steps for years to increase security in the stadium, and these latest measures are part of that ongoing effort to adopt best practices for safety and security established at large venues around the world.

Idaho law now allows the holders of enhanced concealed weapons permits to carry concealed on some parts of Idaho campuses, but it continues to ban concealed guns and other weapons from the stadium and other large venues on college campuses — even for permit-holders.

Boise State will be among the first universities in the country to adopt walk-through metal detectors, though they and metal-detecting wands have fast become the norm at professional sports venues and big bowl games. Security experts say they are an effective and convenient way to boost the safety of a stadium and expect more large universities soon will adapt these and other methods.

The NFL now requires clear bags only and metal detection at every stadium. Major League Baseball will have metal detection at every ballpark by 2015. Universities including Rutgers, University of Pittsburgh and University of South Florida have adopted the NFL’s clear bags requirement. Other universities, including Michigan and Michigan State, prohibit all bags at football games.

Campus Security and stadium managers will work this season to perfect the screening procedures to ensure as smooth and quick an entry as possible. They offer these tips to get to your seats as quickly and easily as possible:

  1. Bring a clear bag or no bag to the game.
  2. Remember to leave prohibited items behind, including all weapons, alcohol, glass and coolers. Find a full list at BroncoSports.com.
  3. Don’t wait until just before kickoff to enter the stadium. The earlier you enter the quicker it will be.

Security officials ask anyone who sees something that looks unusual or out of place to immediately call 9-1-1 or Campus Security and Police Services at (208) 426-6911.

Morrison Center for the Performing Arts and Boise State football and basketball games were highlighted in a Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine story about the best college towns for retirees.

Boise was one of 10 towns across the United States cited as places that provide intellectual stimulation, rich cultural resources, team spirit and retiree-friendly tax laws.

“At Boise State, the Velma V. Morrison Center for the Performing Arts features symphony concerts, dance and Broadway musicals. The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute offers college-level classes on everything from PhotoShop to philosophy,” the article stated.

Football vs. Nevada, jkIn reference to the community’s support for Bronco athletics, the article continued: “Boise State’s football and basketball teams attract the kind of community support that larger cities reserve for professional sports.”

Other towns on Kiplinger’s list include Oxford, Mississippi; Ann Arbor, Michigan; Asheville, North Carolina; Athens, Georgia; Charlottesville, Virginia; Fort Collins, Colorado; Gainesville, Florida; Lexington, Kentucky; and State College, Pennsylvania.

Broncos Rank in Top 10 Percent for Academic Progress http://news.boisestate.edu/update/2014/05/08/broncos-rank-top-10-percent-academic-progress/ http://news.boisestate.edu/update/2014/05/08/broncos-rank-top-10-percent-academic-progress/#comments Thu, 08 May 2014 17:45:39 +0000 http://news.boisestate.edu/update/?p=528421 The Bronco football and women’s golf teams have earned public recognition awards from the NCAA for having multi-year Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores in the top 10 percent among schools in their sports.

“As a department and university, we are very proud of the academic success football, women’s golf and all our sports continue to achieve,” said Mark Coyle, Boise State director of athletics. “These results are a direct result of the hard work not only by our student-athletes, but by the coaches and academic staff in our department, as we prepare our young people for success after they graduate from Boise State.”

The NCAA will release the full APR report, which includes the scores for all teams, on May 14.

The APR provides a real-time look at a team’s academic success each semester by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete on scholarship. The APR accounts for eligibility, retention and graduation, providing a measure of each team’s academic performance.

For the football team, this is the fourth-straight year the Broncos have received this national award. Boise State, Clemson, Duke, Northwestern and Rutgers are the only football bowl subdivision schools to finish in the top-10 percent in each of the last four years.

In addition, Boston College, Georgia Tech, Stanford, Missouri, Nebraska, South Carolina, Wisconsin and Utah State earned the Public Recognition Award this year.

This is the first time the women’s golf program has earned a public recognition award. Following the 2013 fall semester, the women’s golf team had a 3.65 average, the highest grade-point average among Boise State athletic programs. The program has recorded the department’s highest GPA in each of the last four semesters.

Women’s golf and football have the only student-athletes with consecutive semesters achieving 4.0 GPAs. Sammie Pless has posted a 4.0 GPA the past three semesters as a member of the women’s golf team, and wide receiver D.J. Dean has two consecutive semesters with a 4.0 GPA as a member of the football team.

Boise State was one of only two football programs in the Mountain West to be recognized and its women’s golf team was one of three such programs honored from the league.

In the past seven APR reports, the football program has had the top score in its conference, the last two as a member of the Mountain West and the previous five as a member of the Western Athletic Conference.

Bryan Harsin Named New Head Football Coach http://news.boisestate.edu/update/2013/12/11/bryan-harsin-named-new-head-football-coach/ http://news.boisestate.edu/update/2013/12/11/bryan-harsin-named-new-head-football-coach/#comments Wed, 11 Dec 2013 16:53:59 +0000 http://news.boisestate.edu/update/?p=464551 BryanHarsin620x320

Bryan Harsin has been hired as head coach of the Boise State football team, Director of Athletics Mark Coyle announced Wednesday.

A member of the Boise State coaching staff from 2001-10, Harsin takes over for Chris Petersen, who left the Broncos to become head coach at Washington last week. Harsin has since served as co-offensive coordinator at Texas (2011-12) and head coach at Arkansas State (2013).

“We are extremely excited in our selection of Bryan Harsin as the next head football coach at Boise State,” Coyle said. “Bryan is one of the top young head coaches in college football and we are thrilled to bring him back to Boise to lead the Bronco program. Bryan played a key role in the development of the football program as an assistant for 10 years at Boise State and we look forward to his leadership as we continue the ascension of Bronco football.”

Football portraits, Brian Harsin, studio“We’re coming home,” Harsin said. “Kes and I are thrilled about returning to Boise State. It’s a special place built by special people. One of the hardest decisions we ever made was leaving Boise. We did that so I could become a better coach, so I could one day have the opportunity to return as head coach — that day has arrived.

“I appreciate the history and tradition of the Boise State program,” Harsin continued. “I embrace that success but won’t rest on it. We will build this program every day with a sense of urgency. I can’t wait to get to work. Go Broncos!”

“I am very excited to welcome Bryan Harsin back to Bronco Nation,” Boise State President Bob Kustra said. “His return is great news for all of us who do not want to lose momentum with the national reputation the program has achieved. We hear time and time again from current and former players and coaches that the Boise State system is unique in its discipline, rigor and innovation — on the field and in the classroom. And Coach Harsin knows and understands the Boise State way as much as anyone. As we write the next chapter of Bronco football history, I know it will continue to bring distinction to Boise State University.”

A graduate of Capital High School in Boise, Harsin was Petersen’s offensive coordinator for five of his eight seasons as head coach (2006-10) and was named a finalist for the 2009 Broyles Award, awarded annually to the nation’s top assistant coach. Boise State went 61-5 during his tenure as offensive coordinator, including undefeated seasons in 2006 (13-0) and 2009 (14-0), and an undefeated regular season in 2008.

Football vs. Louisiana Tech, jkWith Harsin at the helm, Boise State finished in the top-25 nationally each season in both total offense and scoring offense. The Broncos led the country in scoring in 2009 (42.21) and finished as the nation’s second-highest scoring team in both 2006 (39.69) and 2010 (45.08). Boise State also ranked second nationally in total offense in 2010 (521.31), and added top-10 finishes in the statistical category in 2006 and 2009.

Boise State finished no lower than 12th in scoring offense during his time as offensive coordinator and no lower than 18th in total offense.

As quarterbacks coach, Harsin mentored Kellen Moore, the winningest quarterback in college football history, during his first four seasons as a Bronco. Moore, now with the Detroit Lions, was named first-team All-America by the Football Writers Association of America in 2010, and became Boise State’s first Heisman Trophy finalist that same season.

The former Bronco letter-winner began his coaching career at Boise State as a graduate assistant in 2001, before taking over the tight ends as a full-time assistant coach from 2002-05. When Petersen was hired as head coach in 2006, Harsin assumed the role of offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

The Broncos are in the midst of the seventh-longest active streak in the nation of consecutive bowl appearances (12), and Harsin was a part of each of the first nine – including the team’s victories in both the 2007 and 2010 Tostitos Fiesta Bowls.

With Harsin on staff, Boise State also won eight conference championships.

While with Texas, Harsin helped guide the ascension of an offense that ranked 88th in scoring prior to his arrival, to No. 24 nationally in 2012 (36.1). Despite starting 10 freshmen and sophomores on offense during his first season with the Longhorns, Texas put up more than 500 yards of total offense five times and ranked 21st-nationally in rushing (202.6). The Longhorns rushed for more than 400 yards in back-to-back games, just the fifth and sixth such performances all-time at Texas.

In his second season at Texas, Harsin, who also coached quarterbacks and mentored two different student-athletes that finished the season ranked in the top 20 in passing efficiency. Texas averaged more than 441 yards per game.

Harsin then earned his first head coaching opportunity at Arkansas State in 2013, which claimed a share of the Sun Belt Conference championship this season, as the Red Wolves finished 7-5 overall and 5-2 in league play. A-State earned a bid to the GoDaddy.com Bowl this season.

The Red Wolves ranked fifth nationally in completion percentage in 2013 (.693) and were one of the best teams in the country at taking care of the football. Arkansas State lost just 13 turnovers this season, the seventh-fewest in the country. The Red Wolves threw just six interceptions, the 10th-fewest in the nation.

Additionally the team’s rushing attack ranked 29th-nationally, averaging 206 yards per game.

Harsin was a member of the Bronco football team from 1995-99, earning three varsity letters. Following his graduation with a degree in business management, Harsin coached running backs and receivers at Eastern Oregon in 2000.

Harsin and his wife Kes have two daughters, Devyn Lynn and Dayn Mykena, and a son, Davis.

Boise State President Bob Kustra and Director of Athletics Mark Coyle praised Petersen Friday and looked ahead to the next chapter of Boise State’s unique football story.

“We wish Chris Petersen and his family all the best in their future endeavors,” Coyle said. “Chris is an outstanding coach and role model, and we know he’ll be successful at Washington. We have started a national search for our next head football coach at Boise State and will work tirelessly to find the perfect fit to continue the ascension of Bronco football.”

“I know Bronco Nation joins me in thanking Chris Petersen for all he did to advance Boise State’s football program over the past 13 years,” Kustra said. “He is not only a great coach but a great person and an asset to the community. We were lucky to have him at Boise State and Washington is lucky to get him. We wish Chris and Barbara the very best.

“Boise State fans, players and students know this program was built one brick at a time, with a succession of coaches who moved us to the next level. Our program has advanced steadily with an amazing amount of success through all those years, and we will be looking forward, not backward, making sure that we continue that success. Bronco Nation deserves no less.”

Neither Coyle nor Kustra will have any other comments on this or the coaching search at this time.
