BOISE -- The big "Boise State" logo in the middle of the blue turf at Bronco Stadium is geting a slightly new look this year.
The old logo brought $7,000 at auction during a Boise State Foundation event last Saturday. The historic chunk of blue carpet came onto the block as a late, unlisted item in the program.
That begs the question: what's the high-bidder going to do with this 38' by 48' foot patch of blue?
Despite reports to the contrary, the old logo won't be replaced by the new academic 'B' logo campus officials introduced earlier this year.
University spokesman Greg Hahn said it will soon be replaced with a slightly updated Boise State sports logo.
The only change? Hahn says the words "Boise State" will be removed from underneath the trademark BSU Bronco head.
