2013 Schedule | Mountain West Release
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The second year of Colorado State football under Head Coach Jim McElwain begins on Sunday, Sept. 1 at 4 p.m. MT. The annual rivalry game against Colorado, in addition to four other contests, will be broadcast to a nationwide television audience on CBS Sports Network. The Mountain West, in conjunction with CBS Sports Network, made the announcement Friday.
In addition to CSU’s season opener, CBS Sports Network has picked up CSU’s home dates against UTEP (Sept. 28), San Jose State (Oct. 12) and Boise State (Nov. 2). The Rams’ road contest at Utah State (Nov. 23) will also be broadcast by the network.
Also announced in the release were kickoff times for the five televised games:
- Colorado at Colorado State (Sports Authority Field at Mile High) – Sept. 1, 4 p.m. MT
- UTEP at Colorado State – Sept. 28, 1:30 p.m. MT
- San Jose State at Colorado State – Oct. 12, 1:30 p.m. MT
- Boise State at Colorado State – Nov. 2, 6 p.m. MT
- Colorado State at Utah State – Nov. 23, 1:30 p.m. MT
CBS Sports Network is the Mountain West’s primary rights holder, and Friday’s announcement previews the eighth season of MW football on the network. Kickoff times for CSU’s remaining eight contests will be announced at a later date, pending further TV announcements. Last year, all 12 of CSU’s games were televised.
AG DAY, HOMECOMING DATES ALSO SET
Also announced on Friday were the dates of CSU’s annual Ag Day and Homecoming & Family Weekend festivities.
Ag Day will take place on Sept. 28, for CSU’s game against UTEP. Now in its 32nd year, Ag Day, one of the finest traditions in the region, celebrates Colorado’s agriculture history. On average, 3,500 people annually attend and enjoy live music, entertainment and delicious Colorado-grown food prior to kickoff. All proceeds support more than a dozen scholarships for CSU students studying agricultural sciences. The event, which was started by Thurman “Fum” McGraw, celebrates CSU’s agriculture heritage, as the University was originally known as the Colorado A&M Aggies.
During the weekend of Oct. 12, CSU will welcome alumni, friends and families back to campus for spirit-filled activities in honor of Homecoming & Family Weekend. The celebration lasts all weekend, and includes a parade through Old Town and campus, a pep rally and bonfire the evening before the game, and numerous campus activities throughout the weekend, capped with the football game against San Jose State.
Prices for CSU’s 2013 home slate largely remain the same, with the exception of some sideline and end zone sections decreasing by 13 percent from last year. Current season ticket holds should have received renewal statements in the mail earlier this month. Fans interested in purchasing new season tickets can visit CSURams.com or call 1-800-491-RAMS to place a deposit for priority seating. Season-ticket packages include CSU’s six home games played at Sonny Lubick Field at Hughes Stadium, plus the Rocky Mountain Showdown vs. Colorado, which will be played at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Individual game tickets will go on sale at a later date.
