- One year after the founding of Boise Junior College, the school began to play football in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA).
- In 1968, Boise College began to compete with four-year colleges as an independent in the NAIA, a transitional period that began in 1965 and finished in 1969.

- The Broncos were accepted into the NCAA in October 1969, and a month later into the Big Sky Conference, effective the following July. The Broncos began NCAA competition in 1970 in Division II ("College Division" prior to 1973) in a brand new Bronco Stadium.
- In 1973 the NCAA "College Division" was split into two divisions — "Division II" and "Division III" — Boise State joined Division II.
- When the NCAA realigned in 1978, the Big Sky Conference was moved from Division II up to the newly created Division I-AA, a subdivision of Division I. Since 2006, Division I-AA has been known as Division I FCS. (Idaho was moved down from Division I to Division I-AA in 1978.)
- Due to sanctions for "coaching irregularities" in 1978, Boise State was ineligible for the conference title or the I-AA playoffs in 1979.
- Though tied for first at 6–1, Boise State did not win the Big Sky title in 1981 due to their head-to-head loss to champion Idaho State.
- Boise State moved up to Division I-A in 1996.
- Overtime rules in college football were introduced in 1996, eliminating ties.
- In 2006, "Division I-A" was renamed "Division I Football Bowl Subdivision" or "Division I FBS" for short.
