Check out events before the game
Pearl Street Stampede
Visit Pearl Street on Friday, Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. to join this CU pep rally before the game. The Pearl Street Stampede is a fall tradition, featuring the Golden Buffalo Marching Band and members of the CU Buffs football team. The stampede will begin in front of the courthouse and move west, stopping on each block of the Pearl Street Mall to perform.
Pearl Street Stampede events are free and open to everyone. They occur throughout the season on the evening before home games.
Student Gameday Huddle
Show your Buff pride at the Student Gameday Huddle before the game on Saturday, Nov. 11 on the Quad between Brackett, Cockerell, Crossman, and Aden Halls.
The Student Gameday Huddle is a new tailgate tradition where students can come cheer on the Buffs before CU’s home games. There will be free food, giveaways, games, music and a chance to walk on to Folsom Field if you are chosen as the Student Fan of the Game. You can self-nominate or nominate a friend here.
If you’re attending the game at Folsom Field, here are some things to know before game day:
Wear your CU gear: Whether it’s black, gold or white, show off your Buff pride with your favorite CU attire.
Use a clear bag: Folsom Field has a clear bag policy in place. Review reminders on what bags are permitted in the stadium.
Practice the CU Fight Song: Watch this video to learn the CU Fight Song before game day.
Remember that you’re a Buff wherever you are. Whether you’re watching the game at Folsom Field, a local restaurant or a friend’s house off campus, be considerate and respectful to those around you. Buffs stand shoulder to shoulder and value honor, respect and integrity. Make sure you’re welcoming fans, new and old, treating everyone with dignity and celebrating responsibly.
If you’re off campus, be mindful of noise levels. Excessive noise at any time of the day can result in a nuisance ticket—a common citation that can be avoided. You can also be fined if there is trash in your yard or around your property.
