FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- First-year Head Coach Kristin Holt and her women’s basketball team will begin their season in a free exhibition game, Friday at 7 p.m. against the Adams State Grizzlies. Fans are encouraged to dress up in Halloween gear for a costume contest, and kids will also be able to "trick or treat" on the court after the game with the basketball team.
Admission also is free to the first men's exhibition game, vs. Chadron State, Nov. 3 at 7 p.m.
Holt will be hosting a live chat Wednesday at 2 p.m. on CSURams.com. Fans don’t need to wait to post their questions for Holt about the upcoming season; they can ask early by visiting http://csurams.cstv.com/chat/102308aaa.html.
For the second time in three weeks, the Rams meet a ranked opponent (also now-No. 10 Utah, Oct. 18). It's the first time since 2004 the Rams play more than one ranked opponent in the same season. Four years ago, CSU played three foes ranked in the AP's top 25: No. 1 USC, No. 22 Minnesota and No. 7 Utah.
Allstate is giving one fan one chance to win $1,000 by kicking a 25-yard field goal. The contest will occur during the first-quarter break. What’s more, two Fort Collins youth football teams will square off at halftime.
CSU students may pick up their football tickets at the athletics ticket office (located on the first floor of the McGraw Athletics Center) beginning Monday. Student tickets also are available on campus at the Lory Student Center. Students are encouraged to pick up their tickets early, as they are distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis. If tickets still are available, students may secure them at the Hughes Stadium box office. The student section is the east grandstand, along the Rams' home sideline, and seating is general admission.
Students wishing to bring a guest who is not a CSU student may purchase a $25 general-admission, student-section ticket.
After a win on Friday, the No.14 Rams are enjoying an eight-day layoff, and will return to the court on Saturday when they host Air Force at noon in Moby Arena. With injuries to Jaime Strauss and Katelyn Steffan, the break comes at an ideal point.
"We need this recovery and it comes at a perfect time in our season," Head Coach Tom Hilbert said. "It's going to be nice to heal our injuries and try to put some new things into place."
Hike & Spike – Fans who show their BYU football tickets at the Moby Arena gate will be given admission to the Air Force volleyball match (noon Saturday) for only $3.
On Saturday, the Rams will compete at the Mountain West Championships all day in San Diego, Calif., having had two weeks to prepare. Both the men’s and women’s teams are coming off two tough losses earlier this month and will look to gain momentum in November.
The Colorado State women’s golf team closes its fall schedule Monday-Wednesday at the Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown hosted by conference foe UNLV. The 54-hole tournament will be played over three days. Monday and Tuesday’s rounds begin with tee times starting at 8:50 a.m. PT. Wednesday’s final round is an 8 a.m. shotgun start.
Live scoring of each round of the Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown will be available at GolfStat.com.
