FORT COLLINS, Colo.--Two more Colorado State football games in 2017 were assigned kickoff times and television designations, it was announced Wednesday by the Pac-12 and SEC.
The 2017 Rocky Mountain Showdown on Friday, Sept. 1, will kick off at 6 p.m. (MT) at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver, and will be televised nationally by the Pac-12 Network. Additionally, the Rams' Saturday, Sept. 16, visit to Alabama will kick off at 5 p.m. MT (6 p.m. CT) and be televised by either ESPN or ESPN2.
This year's Showdown will be the 17th to be played in Denver since the rivalry series shifted to the Mile High City as its primary home in 1998. The Rams' visit to Tuscaloosa to face the Crimson Tide will be their second in the last five seasons, having last played at Alabama in September 2013.
Nine of the Rams' 12 games in 2017 have now been slated to be televised, with more selections expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
The 2017 Colorado State Rams, under the direction of third-year head coach Mike Bobo, return 15 starters including three 2016 All-Mountain West performers: Wide receiver Michael Gallup (first team), center Jake Bennett (second team) and quarterback Nick Stevens (honorable mention). Bennett was recently named to the watch list for the 2017 Rimington Trophy, awarded annually to the nation's top center. The trio also joined nine other teammates in receiving preseason All-MW recognition for 2017 by Athlon Sports.
