The Rams volleyball team is gearing up for a big week on the court, and with it comes big promotions.
Colorado State hosts two teams--UNLV (Thursday at 7 p.m.) and Fresno State (Saturday at 1 p.m.)--who are battling the Rams for a Mountain West championship. Entering play this week, CSU is tied with UNLV for second place in the conference standings, a half-game behind San Diego State. The Bulldogs of Fresno State sit one game behind the Rams and Rebels.
"It's a very important week for us as we aim for a fourth consecutive Mountain West title," Head Coach Tom Hilbert said. "Our fans have helped us all season, and once again, we need them to pack Moby."
CSU is 12-1 on the season in front of its home crowd and hasn't lost a home match to a current member of the Mountain West since Nov. 4, 2005, a stretch of 42 consecutive matches.
Thursday night will be CSU's annual Orange Out, as the team will wear orange uniforms to honor the school's Aggie heritage. Fans are also encouraged to wear orange to the match.
In addition to the Orange Out, Thursday is also Social Media Night. Fans who Like CSU volleyball on Facebook (www.facebook.com/csuvolleyball) will have access to two specials, including a $1 off coupon. Facebook fans can print the coupon and receive a dollar off admission into the match. Please note: The coupon must be redeemed the night of the match at the ticket office located on the north concourse, and not before.
The big promotion of the night, however, is a trip for two to Boise, Idaho, to watch CSU's volleyball and football teams play the Boise State Broncos on Nov. 17. Fans of CSU volleyball on Facebook will have access to this contest by filling out the online entry, printing out the confirmation code and submitting it to a CSU representative on the north concourse of Moby Arena at Thursday night's match. Fans must be present to win, and the winning name will be drawn that night.
The grand prize includes roundtrip airfare for the winner and a guest, lodging for two nights in Boise and tickets to both the football game and volleyball match. Additionally, 20 secondary winners will receive free CSU T-shirts.
During the match, several promotions, including Twivia (Twitter trivia), will give fans a chance to win prizes. At several breaks throughout the night, a trivia question will be read and shown on the video board. The first person to correctly tweet the answer to CSU volleyball's Twitter account (@CSUvolleyball) will win a prize pack.
Fans are also encouraged to submit photos of themselves at the match by tweeting the photos using the hashtag: #CSUvb. Photos will later be uploaded to volleyball's Facebook page. Fans are encouraged to use the hashtag with all tweets during the match and leading up to it.
