When it comes to American Football, most people love to watch the NFL. We cannot really blame them though. This is where the magic happens....

The Mountain West released its 2015 football schedule Monday afternoon, which helped to complete CSU’s 2015 schedule as well.

In head coach Mike Bobo’s first season, CSU will play six home games at Sonny Lubick Field at Hughes Stadium, as well as the annual Rocky Mountain Showdown against Colorado at Denver’s Sports Authority Field at Mile High.


CSU will play six opponents, including five Mountain West foes, who participated in 2014 bowl games.

The Rams will open the season Saturday, Sept. 5, vs. Savannah State in Fort Collins. The home opener will also be the annual Ag Day tradition and Orange Out game.

The Rams will then host Big 10 foe Minnesota on Saturday, Sept. 12, before playing in-state rival Colorado on Saturday, Sept. 19. This is the first time the Rams have played back-to-back Power 5 conference opponents in the same season since 2007.

The Rams round out their non-conference schedule with a trip to San Antonio to play the University of Texas-San Antonio on Saturday, Sept. 26.

CSU’s Mountain West slate begins on the road at Utah State on Saturday, Oct. 3. The next two weeks the Rams will host the only teams to defeat them in conference play in 2014 in Boise State (Oct. 10) and Air Force (Oct. 17). Both teams finished 2014 with at least 10 wins, and the Broncos finished ranked No. 20 in the College Football Playoff rankings.

After opening with that three-game stretch to start Mountain West play, CSU will have its lone bye week on Saturday, Oct. 24.

On the last Saturday of October, the Rams will host San Diego State. The Aztecs, who play in the West Division, haven’t faced the Rams since Oct. 13, 2012. SDSU holds a 19-13 series advantage.


In the month of November, the Rams are on the road three out of the four weekends, with the lone home contest being played on Nov. 14 vs. UNLV. The Rams and Rebels renew the series that was last played Nov. 10, 2012, as CSU defeated UNLV 33-11.

CSU travels to Laramie for the 106th Border War against Wyoming on Saturday, Nov. 7. The 2015 regular season will end with back-to-back road games at New Mexico (Nov. 21) and at Fresno State (Nov. 28).

In the third year of the Mountain West’s 12-team, two-division format, the Rams are members of the Mountain Division and will not play West Division foes Hawai’i, Nevada and San Jose State.
