CSU football: Hottest ticket in town

Homecoming Football at Colorado State UniversityCSU football games have become THE must-see event in Fort Collins.

The Rams host Wyoming at 5 p.m. Saturday at Hughes Stadium in the 105th renewal of the Border War. The game is already sold out, giving CSU back-to-back sellouts for the first time since 2004.

Students, get your tickets

CSU students, who picked up all of their 10,000 allotted tickets for last week’s thrilling 16-13 Homecoming win over Utah State, should waste no time grabbing their tickets to see Saturday’s game. Only 1,800 remain, and those are expected to be snapped up by midday Thursday.

The Rams will be looking to repeat last year’s 55-22 rout of the Cowboys in Laramie. That game – Wyoming was favored – proved to be a watershed event for both programs. CSU, which entered that game 2-4, has gone 12-3 since then, including five consecutive wins. Wyoming was 4-2 prior to last year’s game but has gone 4-9 since.

Rams, Grayson on a roll

The Rams, who are already eligible to play in their second consecutive bowl game, will be led by senior quarterback Garrett Grayson, who became CSU’s all-time leading passer in the win over Utah State. With six games remaining, he has a chance to surpass the 9,000-yard mark for career passing.

Wyoming is led by first-year coach Craig Bohl, who will be experiencing his first Border War and battle for the Bronze Boot. Bohl, however, is no stranger to Hughes. In 2012 he brought his North Dakota State team to Fort Collins and left with a 22-7 win.

Two more home games

The Rams have two remaining home games after Saturday: Nov. 8 vs. Hawaii and Nov. 22 vs. New Mexico. Tickets for those game are available online or by calling (970) 491-7267.
