I had an incredible realization sitting on my couch, watching Bachelor in Paradise last night.

I know, right? Who thought you could have an intelligent thought while watching any of the shows in the Bachelor franchise? While I was sitting on the sofa, I had this amazing realization that the Treasure Valley has 0 more weekends without college football!

Yes, I know that Game 1 against Troy isn't until Saturday, September 1 but this Saturday is Boise State's annual Fall Fan Fest! It's an open practice where fans can check out the new family friendly Ford Tailgate Zone that will be part of the pre-game party throughout the entire Bronco season.  The new tailgate zone on DeChevrieux Field opens at 11 a.m. Stop by to play some tailgate games, let the kids burn off some their energy on the inflatables and maybe get a selfie with the new Bronco girl and her trusty steed!

The ticket office opens at 11 a.m. too.  They're giving Bronco Nation one last chance to test drive the area where they may want to purchase season tickets, mini plans or singe game tickets.  You'll even have a chance of that cool new set-up/tear-down tailgate service we told you about.

Gates for the Broncos practice inside Albertsons Stadium open at 1 p.m. and is FREE to the public.  The practice begins at 2 p.m.
