    The institutions have agreed on a contract that is in the process of being signed, but will have the Falcons visit Boulder on Sept. 12, 2020, with the Buffaloes returning the game on Sept. 10, 2022; it will be the second game of those seasons for both schools. The fairly standard agreement has each school designating 3,000 tickets for the other when they are the visitor.

    You know one of the best parts of this? RG gave the Zoomies a home-and-home after refusing to consider that for CSU. :lol:

    Did CSU insist on playing their portion at SAF?

    Fantastic. OUtside of the humor, AFA is much more deserving of a home and home, imo. If this continues after the 4 game series, it should go to 3 to 2 or something though.

    Really excited to head down there for a game. :woot:

    That's exciting! I was looking at our future non conference schedule. How'd I miss we are playing at Michigan next year?

    I would assume RG agreed for a home and home because they have a big stadium and can sell it out on campus without any issues. More money in it to play them than CSU on campus.

    AFA is such a great atmosphere for a CFB game. I try to go once a year.

    I just hope Wally doesn't boo their cadets again.

    Nice. Hopefully, this is a sign the CSU game is on life support. Time to move on.

    Awesome! So glad the schools put the past behaviors behind us. This will be FUN!

    p.s. - CSU already expecting us to lose both of these games.... in 5 & 7 years. Ugh....

    Cool.

    Plati's lack of math skills were apparent again, as he claimed that 1977 was "also over 40 years ago." That guy really has counting issues.

    Correct on all counts.

    Also CU has a solid alumni base in Southern Colorado and this provides some opportunities for outreach. AFA is also a much higher profile school nationally that CSU. Game is more valuable from a media standpoint allowing extra flexibility.

    We're also getting another home gain in 2017 - was this already known? Further down in the article:

    Yeah. SJSU backed out of the home/away that Bohn scheduled with them prior to joining the Pac-12. The away date was in a year we ended up with 4 home Pac-12 games, so getting that off and finding a school to take a one-off to Folsom was a big improvement to the schedule. I was worried about there being a season coming up with only 5 games played at Folsom. Good work, RG.

    Fantastic. I [emoji173]️ Rick George and his scheduling chops.

    CU at AFA has been on my bucket list forever.

    Woo-hoo!

    RG is killing it with scheduling and love the middle finger he just gave to the rams. I have talked to him about the Ewe game and he hates it as well. This is a huge step forward in owning our schedule and not letting the little brother in ft fun have their way with it. Protecting the home games at Folsom has been an RG priority and he is coming thru.

    This occasion is probably worth recognizing with a letter to Benson and a token donation for a job well done.
