Details still are being settled, but the parade, which is being planned in cooperation with the governor’s office and the Boise mayor’s office, is set to start at 3 p.m. It’ll go from the Boise State campus to the state Capitol, where the “Statehouse Salute” will be held on the Capitol steps. That’ll be followed by an autograph session with Bronco players and coaches from 5-7 p.m. at Boise State in the Caven-Williams Sports Complex, with the Fiesta Bowl trophy on display. Right after that, the Bronco men’s basketball team plays Hawaii at Taco Bell arena; a ceremony honoring head football coach Chris Petersen and the Broncos will be held at halftime.
