The Rocky Mountain Showdown lives on into the next decade with the announcement for a home-and-home series between the Colorado and Colorado State, as first reported by Matt Stephens of the Denver Post.
The four-game contract between 2029-30 and 2033-34 will keep games on campus at Folsom Field in 2029 and 2033, followed by the canvas in Fort Collins in 2030 and 2034. When CU and CSU meet on Aug. 30, 2019, it will mark the end of playing a neutral site game at Denver’s Mile High Stadium— a site for 18 of the past 21 games. The 2020 matchup shifts the series to Fort Collins for the first time since 1996.
No games are scheduled for the in-state rivalry between the end of the current contract in 2020 and the start of the new one in 2024. Both schools agreed to a home-and-home with a game in Boulder in 2023 and back again in Fort Collins in 2024, but it’s unlikely the Buffs and Rams will face each between 2024 and 2029.
The Buffs are 66-22-2 all-time in the Rocky Mountain Showdown, including wins in nine of the past twelve contests going back to 2007.
Colorado plays host to Colorado State on Friday, Aug 30 at 8:10 p.m. ET (TV: ESPN, Radio: 850 KOA).
