Boise State Coach Follows Through On Promise
A sell out crowd at Taco Bell Arena Saturday evening means one end of a two-sided deal needed to be held up.
Leon Rice, Head Coach of Boise State Men's Basketball made Bronco-Nation one promise: get a sell out crowd in the building against a tough San Diego State team and he would walk across the cold Boise River.
Bronco Nation came out to support and Leon Rice held up his end of the bargain.

Boise State athletics published a video of Rice crossing the river and his reaction to the cold water seems to have really caught on, on the internet. See the video below.
For those who weren't inside @TacoBellArena tonight and didn't already see (and if you weren't there, why not?!?), Coach Rice kept his word and crossed the Boise River! #BleedBluepic.twitter.com/fNQgJSIDA6

Not only was the crowd a sellout, but Boise State pulled off an exciting win against a conference foe in San Diego State. It was the first sellout in nearly 4 years and Boise State Men's Basketball continues to prove the program is building to be one of the best in the country this season.
