FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Tickets to CSU’s next two home games, a Homecoming battle Oct. 1 vs. San Jose State and an Oct. 15 clash with No. 4 Boise State and Heisman candidate Kellen Moore, are selling quickly.
Fans should not wait to purchase their seats. In addition to free student tickets on the east side, only west-side seats remain for those games. Tickets are available online at CSURams.com/tickets, at any King Soopers or City Market location in Colorado, over the phone at 1-800/491-RAMS, or in person during normal business hours at the McGraw Athletic Center box office.
Cans Around the Oval kickoff: The San Jose State game also gives fans an opportunity to feed the hungry in Northern Colorado, as it kicks off the university’s annual Cans Around the Oval campaign, in which the institution strives to line the campus landmark with non-perishable food items for the less fortunate every fall.
First, just by purchasing a ticket, fans will make a difference, as Head Coach Steve Fairchild and his wife, Nancy, again will donate 10 cents per fan at the SJSU contest to the Larimer County Food Bank. A sold-out stadium would mean a $3,250 donation.
Second, fans coming to the game are asked to bring non-perishable food donations. Coaches’ wives will be at every gate, as well as Ram Town, collecting those items in addition to financial donations for the hungry.
Additionally, volleyball fans coming to this week’s 1 p.m. Boise State match Saturday at Moby Arena will receive free admission by bringing two canned-food items.
Boise State, possibly highest-ranked team ever in Fort Collins, part of attractive Mountain West mini-plan: Fans can save when purchasing Boise State tickets as part of a mini-plan season-ticket package still available. The Broncos, ranked No. 4 in both the Associated Press and USA Today polls this week, could be the highest-ranked team ever to visit Fort Collins. TCU was No. 5 last season when it visited the Rams, as was CU in 1996.
Boise State will play a historic game at Sonny Lubick Field at Hughes Stadium, the team’s first conference contest as a member of the Mountain West.
The Mountain West mini-plan features not only Boise State, but also San Diego State and Air Force -- three teams that have at least received votes in the national rankings this season. San Diego State and its own NFL Draft prospect Ryan Lindley, is 3-0, including big wins at Army and at home against Washington State. The Aztecs come to town Nov. 12, while the Falcons travel up I-25 on Nov. 26.
All three games are 4 p.m. kickoffs.
The MW mini-plan is $90, a savings of $10 off the combined face value of the three tickets. Ram Club members can purchase MW Plans in donor seating levels. Prices do not include delivery fees ($7 mail, $10 will call), but there is no $5 per-ticket processing fee on any mini-plan purchase.
For more information, contact the CSU ticket office at 1-800/491-RAMS (7267).
