The Boise State Broncos are the official athletic program of Boise State University. The Broncos compete in a wide variety of sports. Perhaps the most well-known of these sports is the football program. The program attained a 13-0 season in 2006 capped by a memorable overtime win in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl against the Oklahoma Sooners. They finished the season as the only major undefeated college football team, yet they became the first team since the 2004-2005 season with an unblemished record to not receive any share of the National Championship. Other notable sports teams include the wrestling team, which competes in the Pacific-12 Conference (the MWC is a non-wrestling conference), the women's basketball team, which won the WAC for the first time ever in 2007 and the tennis teams which have consistently had nationally ranked players. The Broncos have a very successful athletic program overall, winning the WAC commissioner's cup for the 2005-06 year and 2009-10 year.
The school's football stadium, Bronco Stadium, introduced its famous blue artificial turf (now FieldTurf) in 1986.
