Colorado Buffaloes Football Tickets
A national championship in 1990 cemented the Colorado Buffaloes' status as one of the elite football teams of that year in NCAA Division I play, dispelling doubts that its previous 11–1 season was a fluke. After a slump, tit won the Big 12 Conference Championship in 2001 with coach Bill McCartney as well as four North Division championships from 2001 through 2005. The Colorado Buffaloes has maintained a ranking of No.23 on the all-time win list as of 2019. It plays its home games at Folsom Field in Boulder, a college town nestled against the Rocky Mountain foothills about 25 miles northwest of Denver, Colo. The stadium has a capacity of approximately 53,000. The team's top rivals are Colorado State and Utah. Colorado has also historically enjoyed a lively rivalry with the Nebraska Huskers.
Who is the Colorado Buffaloes football mascot?
Colorado University football chose the Buffalo as its mascot from a pool of public submissions in 1934. It was a contest held by the Silver & Gold newspaper and generated more than 50,000 entries. Originally, the live mascot consisted solely of renting a bison calf for game day. The first permanent, live Buffalo mascot was Ralphie I in 1966. She attended her first game in October of that year. September 1967 marked the debut of Ralphie running across the field with her handlers, which thereafter became a popular tradition. Today, Ralphie V has her own group of professionally trained handlers and appears at football games as well as other promotional university events. Most home game days you can see her charging across the field in a horseshoe pattern both before the game and before the second half. Her five handlers from the senior class steer her through the turns. She is considered one of the best live mascots in collegiate sports, ranked No. 6 by Sports Illustrated.
