The University of Colorado has just announced that the 2012 Rocky Mountain Showdown has been moved to Sunday, September 2. The game will once again take at Sports Authority Field. Jon Embree will be looking for his second win in the series after beating the Rams 28-14 in 2011. The Buffaloes have won two straight in the series after falling to CSU 23-17 in 2009.

I, personally, like the move. It means a likely national television audience without a lot of competition from other college games or the NFL. Heck, it even means one more day of practice for the Buffs new starting quarterback. What does everyone else think?
