Updated as of Thursday at 1:20 p.m.: Student tickets are officially sold-out as of about 1 p.m. on Thursday, according to senior associate athletic director for sales and marketing Jason Layton.

Updated as of Wednesday at 10:00 a.m.: Less than 1,000 student tickets remain as of 4 p.m. on Wednesday, according to Ram Ruckus, the official student spirit group of Colorado State.


Last week’s sell-out crowd for Colorado State’s homecoming game against Utah State at last Saturday in Fort Collins was not a one-and-done deal. Hughes Stadium is on pace to be at capacity once again for this weekend’s Border War game with Wyoming.

CSU sets aside 10,000 student tickets for every home game. As of Wednesday morning, non-student tickets were sold out and only about 2,000 student tickets remained, according to senior associate athletic director for sales and marketing Jason Layton. He said he expects the remaining student tickets to be sold out by Thursday morning.

Capacity at Hughes is 32,500 and the sold-out crowd for Utah State was the first since 2004. It was the first time CSU had sold over 30,000 tickets since Boise State came to Fort Collins in 2011.

The Rams beat the Cowboys 52-22 to bring the Bronze Boot back to Fort Collins in 2013. Wyoming had won the four matchups prior to that including a 22-19 victory in the teams’ last meeting at Hughes in 2011.

Student tickets are available online at csurams.com and at the McGraw Athletic Center ticket office. CSU hosts Wyoming at 5 p.m. on Saturday, October 25.
