It's going to be the biggest game of the season for the Colorado State Rams, taking on in-state rivals the Colorado Buffaloes.

Don't have tickets to the game? Not a problem. They're opening up CSU's stadium for us.

Folsom Field is sold out for the Rocky Mountain Showdown. That home crowd will be rooting on the Buffs, along with stars galore. We don't need all of that; we just want to cheer on the Rams, right?

It's going to take a lot of local CSU fans to fill up Canvas Stadium enough for them to be heard all the way in Boulder, but I think it's worth the shot.


With the Colorado State Rams being a near three-touchdown underdog for this game, it's going to take every ounce of "fan power" that we can muster to pull this one off. We should all get to CSU's stadium, on Saturday night.

CSU is opening up the stadium to let fans in for free to watch the CSU/CU game on the big scoreboard/screen. They could have easily tried to make some easy money by selling $5 tickets, so this is great that it's going to be free.
