If you are planning to attend the CU vs. CSU game this Saturday, Sept. 1, at 2 p.m. at Sports Authority Field in Denver, please be aware of the following:

Let’s open the 2012 season with a great showing! We expect students from the University of Colorado to compete with class. Remember to represent the Buffs with integrity and show good sportsmanship towards our neighbors.

Your Game Ticket
Your ticket is NOT on your Buff OneCard. You will receive an email from Ticketmaster and you must print your ticket out and bring it to the game. If you forget your ticket, be prepared to wait in line to get one printed and you may miss part of the game. Remember to print your ticket and bring it with you along with your Buff OneCard, and remind your friends to do the same.

Buses to Sports Authority Field
If you need a ride to Denver, CUSG and CU Athletic Department are teaming up to provide bus transportation to the game. Buses will board in front of the Coors Events Center beginning at 10 a.m. You MUST bring your Buff OneCard to ride the buses. Alcohol will not be allowed on the buses. Parking at Sports Authority Field is on a permit basis, so we encourage you take the bus. If you have any questions call 303-492-7473. The buses leave from Sports Authority field 30 minutes after the conclusion of the football game.

Once You Get to Sports Authority Field
Students will need to enter Sports Authority through Gate 1. Your ticket will clearly state if you have lower or upper level access to the student section. This year, the student section is general admission, but it is based on upper or lower level assignments. Look at your ticket and see which area you have been assigned and follow signs and instructions to access those levels.

Inside Sports Authority Field
The CU student section is located in the southwest portion the stadium. Be respectful of security personnel as they are there for your safety. Comply with their requests at all times. If you are in a situation where you or a friend needs help, ask for it.

Other Things to Remember
If you have any disciplinary issue at Sports Authority Field, it WILL be carried over and settled with Student Conduct at CU. Keep in mind that should you have a situation where you are sent to detox, you will be responsible for all costs incurred. These costs include $300 to go to detox, $180 for transport there, if you require an ambulance it costs $895 plus $14.95 a mile and other expenses, emergency room charges are in the ballpark of $5,000 and you will NOT be released from detox until you blow a 0.0, which can take up to 5-12 hours. You will lose access to games at Folsom Field until you are done with the Student Conduct office.

After the Showdown CU Volleyball Hosts Fresno State at 7 p.m.
When you return to Boulder from the Rocky Mountain Showdown, remember to stop by the Coors Events Center as your CU Volleyball team will be hosting Fresno State at 7 p.m. Admission is FREE for all students with a valid Buff OneCard.

Thanks again for your support of the Buffs. See you Saturday in Denver!
