The Colorado Buffaloes lined up agreements with four future football opponents, per an announcement by the school on Thursday.

A western states battle with Wyoming will be featured on the 2025 schedule. (Hopefully Yellowstone doesn’t blow its top before then). The Pokes and Buffs last met each other on the gridiron in 2009 when CU wore 1930 throwbacks. The Buffs dominate the series, having won 23 of 26 matchups and are undefeated in Laramie with a perfect 7-0 record.

The lone meeting with Wyoming is tentatively scheduled on Sept. 20, 2025 at Folsom Field in Boulder. This will fill the vacancy left by moving Missouri to 2031, according to CU athletics.

A home-and-home with Southern Methodist is on the books for subsequent years starting in 2030 in Boulder. The series will shift to Dallas on Sept. 6, 2031. It will be the first-ever meeting between both schools. This is also the first time Colorado will play in Dallas since the Big 12 Championship game in 2001. The Buffs will be close with a game in Fort Worth, Texas to open the 2023 season at TCU on Sept. 2.

Another home-and-home with a school from the Lone State State will be pushed out to the 2032 and 2033 season. North Texas heads to Boulder to open the season on Sept. 4, 2032 before hosting the Buffaloes 364 days later to open the following season in Denton on Sept. 3, 2033. These teams have played just once in their respective histories, a 52-21 Colorado win in 2004.

A familiar foe will be back on the schedule for CU starting in 2036. The home-and-home with Oklahoma State will be Colorado’s first trip to Stillwater in 27 years. The Cowboys will come to Boulder the following year to renew a Big 8 rivalry on Sept. 12, 2037. OSU handed CU a 30-point beat down in the 2016 Alamo Bowl, which was the last meeting between both schools. However, the Buffs lead the all-time series 26-20-1.

Colorado has 19 different opponents on the schedule going into the 2038 season. Colorado State is the only repeat school with six dates in 2023-24, 2029-30, 2033-24 and 2037-38.
