Get Out Your Orange: CSU’s Ag Day Returns Saturday
Colorado State University’s 38th Annual Ag Day is this Saturday, and it is a day that anyone even remotely associated with CSU will not want to miss.
The CSU football team wears special orange uniforms honoring the school's history and storied agriculture program. The Rams host Toledo at Canvas Stadium for an 8:15 p.m. game.
The players will each be wearing an orange throwback uniform in honor of the ‘alfalfa green’ and ‘Aggie orange’ colors. Not only will the team be sporting the Colorado A&M Aggie colors, but the traditional Aggie “A” can be found on the shoulders of the jerseys and on the hip of the bright white football pants.
The Ag Day festivities begin long before kickoff.
Pregame events include a barbecue around at 5:15 p.m. with a variety of delectable foods from the state’s agricultural growers and producers. The money for this barbecue goes towards funding for scholarships for agricultural science students in the program.
Ag Day originated in 1981 to celebrate the agricultural and farming history of CSU, formerly known as Colorado Agricultural and Mechanical College.
The College of Agricultural Sciences works hard to make this yearly event special for students, alumni, professors and anyone who loves CSU and wants to celebrate alongside the ‘Ram fam.’
I hope to see everyone glowing in their Aggie orange this Saturday at Canvas Stadium.
