FORT COLLINS, Colo. - When Colorado State and bitter rival Wyoming renew the Border War Saturday at Moby Arena, they will do so in front of what is expected to be a sellout crowd of 8,745.
Athletic department officials announced Friday afternoon that public reserved seating has sold out for Saturday's "Orange Out" contest, and that only the full student allotment of 2,500 seats remained.
Student tickets, which are free to all full-fees paying students with a valid CSU I.D. card, will be distributed at the northeast student entrance to Moby Arena when doors open at 5:45 p.m.
Colorado State and Wyoming enter Saturday's contest tied for fifth in the Mountain West standings with both programs looking for signature wins to remain in the NCAA tournament picture.
The Rams are riding a 10-game winning streak at Moby Arena, and will be wearing special pumpkin (orange) and alfalfa ( green) uniforms as part of CSU's annual "Orange Out" game to recognize CSU's heritage as the Colorado A&M Aggies. This weekend is also the program's annual "Ram Legends" weekend, and former players from throughout CSU basketball's storied history will be recognized at halftime.
Tipoff is set for 7:02 p.m. and the game will be televised live nationally on The Mtn. - The MountainWest Sports Network. Fans can also catch all the action on the Colorado State Sports Network - KLZ 560 AM (Denver) and KCOL 600 AM (Fort Collins) - with Voice of the Rams Brian Roth calling the play-by-play from courtside.
