BOISE -- It's going to be packed: The school expects a record 37,000-fan turnout for Boise State's game with BYU; the regular shuffle of class-going students; and people arriving for two performances of "Les Miserables" at the Morrison Center. There's also a women's volleyball game at 4 p.m.
70,000 people: That's how many BSU estimates will be on campus Thursday.
'Give you car a brake': The school has just 7,700 parking spaces. To ease traffic problems, the university is asking students and fans to find alternative ways to get to campus. A bike corral just off the Greenbelt by the Friendship Bridge will offer free valet-style bike parking.
Roads closed, opened: Grant Street and Euclid Avenue, between Belmont Street and University Drive, will be closed starting at noon. University between Lincoln and Broadway avenues is open temporarily through Sept. 21.
