FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Early October on Colorado’s Front Range features arguably the best climate in the country for that time of year.
In 2011, it also will serve as the backdrop for the Rams’ annual Homecoming & Family Weekend game, when CSU hosts San Jose State on Oct. 1. The athletic department made the announcement Monday.
Over the last 10 years, Oct. 1 in Fort Collins has averaged 71.1 degrees and 46.4 percent humidity.
The CSU football schedule, released Thursday by the institution and the Mountain West Conference, features another attractive October date. National power Boise State and Heisman candidate Kellen Moore come to town Oct. 15 for the Broncos’ historic first-ever game against an MWC opponent as a member of the conference.
Because CSU did not raise ticket prices compared to its six-game package a year ago, and because the 2011 package features a seventh game, fans get that Boise State contest for free when renewing season tickets or purchasing them for the first time.
Also headed to Fort Collins this fall are the Northern Colorado Bears for an Ag Day Orange Out clash Sept. 10, high-octane San Diego State with Freshman of the Year Ronnie Hillman and 2012 NFL Draft prospect Ryan Lindley, and back-to-back games against CSU’s Front Range rivals, Air Force and Wyoming, to close the regular season.
Plus, because Colorado State and Colorado reached a long-term agreement to play the annual Cinch Jeans Rocky Mountain Showdown in Denver, CSU fans with sideline season tickets get the Buffs game in their season-ticket packages at least through the year 2020. Ram Club members are guaranteed lower-bowl seating at Invesco Field. This year, the teams will battle Sept. 17, because the Buffs had a previously scheduled season-opening trip to Hawaii.
How to renew season tickets
Fans can only renew season tickets online. The CSU athletic department has mailed renewal postcards to 2010 season-ticket holders. Each postcard contains an individual personal ID number and a customer number. Fans will need that information to renew on CSURams.com. Once receiving their postcards, fans should go to the football ticket page on CSURams.com, then click on the “renew season tickets online” button. For more information, fans can call the ticket office at 1-800/491-RAMS.
How to order season tickets
Fans that didn’t hold season tickets in 2010 are able to place orders for 2011 season tickets either online, by clicking on the “season tickets” button via the football ticket page, over the phone by calling 1-800/491-RAMS, or in person during normal business hours at the McGraw Center box office. Seat assignments will be made in June.
