The campus is invited to the Sutherland Sculpture Garden on the west side of the Lory Student Center to enjoy free burgers and pregame cheer. Football coach Mike Bobo and several players are expected to be on hand for the event, along with cheerleaders, CAM the Ram and the CSU Marching Band. Best part? Everything’s free. The annual party, sponsored by ASCSU, begins at 11:40 a.m. and goes until 2 p.m.
