BEAVERTON, Ore. - In the midst of their most successful run in school history, Nike is once again ensuring the Boise State football team is dressed for success.

Today Nike announced the Broncos will be one of nine schools to don the newly designed 2011 Nike Pro Combat System of Dress uniforms during the upcoming season.

“Nike takes pride in giving athletes an advantage by providing them with cutting edge innovation," said Todd Van Horne, Nike’s Creative Director for Football.  "The Nike Pro Combat system of dress uniform delivers unparalleled on-field performance benefits while inspiring the team through each uniform’s unique design.”
