Every college football fan knows that Boise State is home to one of the most unique home environments in the sport with its blue turf field. But what you may not know is that the Broncos have a trained dog whose job is to retrieve the kickoff tee from the field.
Most teams have a staff member run on the field to grab the tee but the Broncos have instead elected to use a four-legged retriever.
Watch the dog retrieve the kickoff tee during Boise State’s last game:
