Boise State is famous for our blue football field, but the Blue Turf is more than just a place where we cheer on our Broncos. It’s a symbol of the innovative mindset that drives all we do. We take risks that matter, break norms, explore, and experience.

It’s what drives a mindset we call Blue Turf Thinking. It’s about seeing things differently, being creative, finding new solutions, and imagining the possibilities of what could be.
