The University of Colorado Boulder football team played their typical Labor Day football game at Empower Field at Mile High Stadium on Saturday, September 11, 2021 at 1:30 p.m. But this year instead of planning their traditional rivals, the Rams of Colorado State University, they were slated to play the Aggies of Texas A&M.
The game happened to be scheduled on the historical 20th anniversary of 9/11 – so a tribute was planned for the pre-game show to remember the victims and first responders of that fateful day. Our Army ROTC Cadets were asked to participate in holding a large U.S. flag across the field during the opening ceremonies. About 20 AROTC Cadets were able to attend the event.
