    If early attendance numbers are any indication, the 2016 Rocky Mountain Showdown between the Colorado Buffaloes and Colorado State Rams could exceed the atmosphere of last year’s overtime thriller in Denver.

    All in all, 66,253 fans made their way to Mile High for a chance to pick their side in 2015. With a week remaining before the game, CSU has sold 25,008 tickets overall, with 6,468 of those being sold to students according to the Reporter-Herald. Down in Boulder, the school is reporting a total of 27,805 tickets sold, with 5,432 of those going to students.

    Yes, it appears that Buffs Nation is indeed ready to be a part of this rise everyone keeps talking about.

    Last year CSU RMS sales: 31,601 total, 11,000+ students. Still a week to make sales

    @el_jeffey @William_Whelan Getting 10K student tix used to be a lay up. Still a week to go. They lowered the price-hoping for a big push.

    If there is concern here, it would be the lack of traction gained in student ticket sales for the Buffs. There’s certainly time for that number to increase, but I’m sure Mike MacIntyre and his players would prefer to have a packed student section to combat whatever energy might be coming down from Fort Collins.
