Is this heaven? No, it’s a Boise State corn maze.

Boise State fans take their football seriously and apparently, also their corn mazes.

For the past three years, Linder Farms in Meridian, Idaho, has developed a Boise State-themed corn maze as a part of its Halloween tradition and this year's design is nothing short of spectacular.

One half of the maze features a Boise State quarterback about to throw a pass and the new Mountain West logo with the words, "Welcome the Broncos." The other half of the maze has the Boise State Bronco logo and the Linder Farms logo.

"We wanted to highlight the merger with the Mountain West conference," Sherrie Feist, co-owner of Linder Farms told the Idaho Statesman. "We love the Broncos. I've grown up in the Valley, and I attended Boise State."

Last year, the theme of the maze was Bronco Nation and featured a player carrying a sledgehammer, which is awarded each week to the best player on special teams. The first year, the maze had a picture of a football player and a basketball player.

The maze costs $10 for adults, $7 for children and all proceeds go to the Boise State general scholarship fund.

While the maze is fantastic, especially from the aerial view, we here at Dr. Saturday have some gripes. On the right side of the maze, the side with the logo, there doesn't appear to be a way out (kinda like Boise State and its non-AQ status — Zing!) Also, the quarterback isn't left-handed like the infamous Kellen Moore. I mean really people, if you're going to do a corn maze supporting your favorite football team, at least put some effort into it.
