1) Toilet Bowl

This intramural flag football tournament happens on The Blue on Monday, October 7.

Fun fact: the Toilet Bowl is one of the longest-running Boise State Homecoming traditions. It’s evolved a lot over the years, but it’s been a Homecoming fixture for more than 60 years.

Boise State Fight Song Lyrics

Fight Broncos, celebrate the orange and blue
Boise, we’ll stand and cheer for you
Fight for distinction & our alma mater
Bravely defending B-S-U!
Fight on Courageously for Boise State
Success and honor make her great
Boise’s proud tradition-
Heads up competition-
Glory for B – S – U
Go! Orange!
Go! big! blue!
Fight! Fight! B-S-U!
