Just talked to a buddy who is a Boise State grad. The best places to go for pre game is “Taphouse” and “The Ram”. The Ram is across the river from the stadium but very close. Another good place is “Diablos and sons”. Best gameday area is “the Ram” and anywhere on 8th street.
You’re not wrong. I always buy through OSU to support our athletic department, but I can’t fault anyone for going third party. Years ago I spoke with someone in the athletic department about offering incentives to buy bowl tickets and road tickets through OSU. A couple years later they did offer Posse points for buying bowl tickets through the school, but that went away quickly. Oh well. Looking forward to a large Cowboy contingent in Boise!
