The Rocky Mountain Showdown returns to campus.

September 2009

Buy, borrow, scalp, or steal a pair of tickets to this month's Rocky Mountain Showdown, the rivalry game between the Colorado Buffs and the Colorado State Rams. The September 6 contest will be played at Boulder's raucous Folsom Field—a den of crazed college students and alumni—after being held in Denver for nine of the past 13 years (at Mile High Stadium and Invesco Field). Sure, you'll have to deal with the CU lunacy, but it may be your last chance to catch the college fun at Folsom: The colleges are expected to ink a deal this month to hold the game at impersonal Invesco for the foreseeable future.
