Boise listed as top college football town by USA Today

USA Today recently ran an article highlighting some of the best college football towns across the country.

The Miami University football team travels to one of them this weekend in Boise, Idaho, home of the Boise State Broncos.

Greg Schroeder, a national college football writer for USA Today Sports, had this to say about Boise State:

"Boise State coach Chris Petersen has resisted overtures to leave for bigger programs, and the town itself is a big reason. It's worth a visit to the home of the upstart Broncos just to see the stadium's blue turf - touted as one of the state's top tourist attractions, it's even blue-er in person than on TV - and Bronco fans' impressive color coordination (designs by section, changing game-by-game). Before the game, run, walk or bike the paths along the Boise River. Then hit an unusually clean downtown for good food and fun - the Basque block, a reflection of the area's rich Basque heritage, is a good place to start."
