It's Gameday at Hughes Stadium!
The Rams' 1:30 p.m. home opener against Cal Poly will be played as scheduled today. As our thoughts today are with our neighbors and friends around the state who have been impacted by the severe flooding along the Front Range, the decision was made Friday after consultation with City and County public safety officials to proceed with our scheduled game.
"Our first concern is for the welfare of the community," said Director of Athletics Jack Graham. "We were very concerned about pulling resources away from areas in need, but we determined that we have the staff available primarily through our campus law enforcement to manage the event. We will continue to monitor the situation and make adjustments as necessary. We would not proceed if we did not have assurances that going forward would not cause stress on community resources or jeopardize people's safety. We do urge those attending the game to use safety when traveling and adhere to all warnings and caution about safe travel routes."
Colorado State University and CSU Athletics encourage fans to donate to the flood relief efforts through convenient text-message donations to the American Red Cross Northern Colorado Chapter. Your donations help support those who are providing food and shelter to Coloradans out of their homes because of the floodwaters. During disasters like this, the American Red Cross provides food and emergency shelter for people who've been displaced.
To make a 10-dollar donation to the American Red Cross, text "REDCROSS" to 90999.
