Predicting The Season: Week One Colorado Vs. Colorado State

This game returns to Invesco Field after a one year hiatus when the game was played in Boulder.  The Rocky Mountain Showdown has been played since 1893 and was played annually until 1958, but was resurrected in 1984.  This has been a close series the past few years with each team winning games.

Colorado is ranked 74th while Colorado State is 80th according to The Sporting News' top 100.  This also will be the first game on The Mtn. and will kick off their full season in HD.  Kick is set for 2p.m. eastern time.

 

Voting lasts 24 hours and will begin everyday at 11am mountain time.
