Here's everything you need to know if you're planning to attend tonight's game:

BRONCO WALK: The team will walk from the Student Union Building through campus to the Bleymaier Football Center north of Albertsons Stadium approximately 2 hours and 25 minutes before kickoff of home games, letting fans get an up-close look at the team.

STREET RESTRICTIONS: Grant, Euclid and Manitou avenues will be closed between Belmont Street and University Drive starting at 12:01 a.m. on game day through an hour after the game ends. Euclid will be closed for Lyft, Uber, and Taxi drop-offs.

ACCESSIBLE PARKING LOTS: Accessible parking stalls in the Stadium lots, ET lot, and Lincoln Garage are available on a first come, first served basis for $10.00 with no in-and-out privileges. Accessible spaces are designated by space number in the Stadium lots; please see a parking staff member if you have any questions. Vehicles must park in the correct numbered accessible space as designated on the permit. Staff in the ET lot and the Lincoln Garage will direct accessible vehicles to the accessible parking locations. Lots open four hours before kick-off on weekday game days, and eight hours before kick-off on weekend game days.

Bicycle Parking is provided two hours before kickoff to one hour after the game near Christ Chapel on Cesar Chavez Lane. Please lock your bike on the provided racks.

ON CAMPUS PARKING: Parking is available in the Lincoln Garage, Plaza Lot West, and Brady Garage beginning four hours before weekday games, and eight hours before weekend games. Spaces are $10.00 on a first come, first served basis. An accessible Boise State shuttle will be provided four hours prior to the game, and one hour after the game. Other campus parking lots will open as well on campus throughout ingress as necessary.

VEHICLE RELOCATION: Vehicles that have been relocated for any reason on campus (i.e., not displaying a proper permit), vehicles parked in an incorrect location or abandoned vehicles will be relocated to the Grant and Beacon (South Commuter) lot, located off of Grant between Belmont and Beacon streets in the temporary dirt lots.

PARKING ON CITY STREETS: Boise State discourages parking on residential side streets. For those who choose to park on city streets, remember that vehicles are not allowed to be parked along portions of University Drive from 2:00 to 5:00 a.m. and parking is prohibited in University bike lanes. Additionally, vehicles cannot be parked longer than 24 hours, parking is not allowed 30 feet from stop signs or 20 feet from an intersection, vehicles may not park in alleyways, in front of driveways, or vacant yards, and all vehicles must be within eighteen inches of the curb.

FREE DOWNTOWN SHUTTLE: Game-day shuttles will run to and from downtown for each home game this season. Before the game, downtown pickups occur every 15 minutes for two hours prior to game time at: 6th and Grove; 8th and Main; 8th and Broad; 8th between Idaho & Bannock; River and 12th (at Payette Brewing). Fans are dropped off on the east side of Albertsons Stadium just off Broadway. After the game, fans are picked up again on the east side of the stadium and taken back downtown. The shuttle runs for one hour after the game is over.

UBER/LYFT/TAXI DROP OFF AREA: An Uber/Lyft/Taxi Drop Off Area is located along Euclid, just south of Albertsons Stadium. Taxis will be allowed to pull in off of Beacon or Belmont onto Euclid and stage on the east side of the road on a first come first serve basis. Uber and Lyft will have to be actively picking up or dropping off in order to access the zone and will stage on the west side of the road.
