BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - “Boise State University will make a major announcement regarding Bronco Stadium during a press conference at 10:30 a.m., Wednesday.”

That was the extent of a Boise State press release issued Tuesday morning, but a source with knowledge of the situation tells KBOI2 Sports that the announcement relates to the sale of Bronco Stadium’s naming rights.

The news caused a bit of an uproar on twitter, with some members of Bronco Nation vowing never to refer to the venue as anything other than Bronco Stadium.

Boise State fans will remember a similar situation when BSU received $4 million dollars to change the Pavilion’s name back in 2004. The State Board of Education approved a 15-year sponsorship that rebranded the facility Taco Bell Arena.
