Boise State Broncos Take Down 400 lbs of Meat

12/31/2009 11:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The undefeated Boise State football team is hungry for a bowl win -- they're also hungry for meat ... lots and lots of meat. In fact, they had a cow.



TMZ has learned the Broncos had a team dinner at Fogo De Chao last night -- a Brazilian all-you-can-eat steakhouse in Scottsdale, Arizona.

A rep for the restaurant tells us they served 130 members of the team, who, on average, consumed between 3-4 pounds of meat per person, totaling roughly 450 pounds of beef.

The Broncos are set to face undefeated TCU in the Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 4th, but before the big game, the Horned Frogs will take a shot at Boise's meat-chomping record -- TCU will hit Fogo tomorrow night.

I've been to that restaurant and if you like beef, it's a little bit of paradise on a plate. I'm sure the meat slicers just set up camp at their tables. Muito bom grub! (and I'm not Brazilian)

mouthy    

so who paid for all that schit? funny how if a student athlete gets a $4.17 movie ticket from someone other than himself he is in violation of ever NCAA rule in existence and it makes national media and the kid is suspended or kicked out of his scholarship, but hell if it is bowl season and the WHOLE football teams goes to the best beef restaurant in Scottsdale and for 130+ people and probably rings up a bill of $15000 then its just no problem......and to say that the boosters or alumni didnt pay for that meal would be a fhucking load of schit. this is the problem with college athletics on display at its worst and the hypocrasy the the NCAA is. BCS system sucks.

I'm calling BS... I know football players can put the food down, but I guarantee the average was not 3-4 pounds per person. A couple of them might have put down 4 pounds, but that's eight, eight-ounce steaks. The restaurant rep is blowing it out of proportion, big-time.

Chris N. no offense, but have you ever seen a hungry football team go into a restaurant? I used to work at a resort and saw this phenomenon once and and have no question a hungry football team could easily hit this mark. And a Brazilian restaurant like this is all about meat. They have great side dishes, but you have to go get them yourself and most people hardly bother. They go right for meat in quantity which is literally wheeled right up and sliced at table side. And it's really, really good meat too! If you ever get a chance to go to one of these places, jump on it!

Foga de Chao is awesome! There food is amazing! And I could totally see how they could put away that much food...they cut it in slices onto your plate. Eat it, flip your card back to green and they come back with more. It is very easy to overeat at that place!

Boise State football pays for itself and then some. This isn't the chess club blowing a few grand on dinner.

3-4 lbs of meat per person? Horse hockey.

Jerk offs using forums to advertise their j-off websites are, well, jerk offs.
