The Colorado State Rams and Toledo Rockets have agreed to a two-game series starting in 2019 and then concluding in 2021. The first game will be out West with Colorado State will hosting in Fort Collins, Colorado, on Sept. 21, 2019. The Rams will then travel to Ohio to take on the Rockets at the Glass Bowl on Sept. 25, 2021.
"We're excited to secure a home-and-home series with Toledo," said Colorado State head coach Mike Bobo in a released statement. "It's a program that has been a consistent winner in a tough Mid-American Conference, and played in a bowl game five of the last six seasons. They will present a significant challenge for our football team."
This will be the third-ever meeting for these schools and the first since the 1970s when they played in 1970 and 1973, with each team winning one of those games.
"We are very pleased to add the series with Colorado State to our football schedule," said Toledo vice-president and athletic director Mike O'Brien. "Colorado State has an excellent football tradition and adds another attractive opponent on our future home schedule. It also helps bring our Toledo brand to a new part of the country."
This is a solid add for the Rams as the Rockets have been to five bowl games since 2010, going 3-2. This past year they went 10-2 and made it to the MAC title game, which they ultimately lost to Western Michigan.
Colorado State now has three non-conference games scheduled for 2019 and just this Toledo game for 2021.
Here is the non-conference schedule for 2019:
08/31 - at Colorado (at Denver, CO)
09/14 - at Arkansas
09/21 - Toledo
