Good News! The “Rocky Mountain Showdown” matching the Colorado Buffaloes (Pac-12) and Colorado State Rams (Mountain West) in a two years on and two years off schedule has been extended once again---and a return to on-campus meetings!
The two schools first met in 1893 and have played a total of 89 times, with games played in Boulder and Fort Collins until the Showdown was moved to Denver in 1998.
“This has been a great series for the state, and we wanted to be sure we had games locked in moving forward,” CU athletic director Rick George said. “The two-on, two-off format we’ve adopted provides both schools some flexibility to schedule other non-conference opponents in other parts of the country, which play a role in several factors, including alumni engagement and recruiting. We have some exciting series coming up this decade, but also felt it was prudent to secure CSU deep into the 2030s.”
The next eight games: Sept. 16, 2023 – at Colorado Sept. 14, 2024 – at Colorado State Sept. 15, 2029 – at Colorado State Sept. 14, 2030 – at Colorado Sept. 17, 2033 – at Colorado Sept. 16, 2034 – at Colorado State Sept. 19, 2037 – at Colorado Sept. 11, 2038 – at Colorado State
