BOISE -- The Boise State football team released their fall practice schedule on Monday.  Players will report on Friday, August 3, and practice for the first time on Saturday, August 4.

Through the first week, workouts will be divided into two groups. The veterans will hit the field in the morning, with the newcomers practicing later in the afternoon. Dividing the team into two is a strategy head coach Chris Petersen has implement before. It allows the coaching staff to maximize their time with each individual.

With only two two-a-day practices for the players on the schedule, Boise State will hold two scrimmages throughout camp. The first one will be on Saturday, August 11, and is closed to the public.  The second however, on Saturday, August 18, will kick off at 7:00 p.m. and is open to both the media and Bronco Nation.

Just like in the spring, coach Pete announced that all the quarterbacks will be off-limits to the media during the preseason schedule, adding their availability will be determined at a later date.

The Broncos kick off the season at Michigan State on Friday, August 31.
