The Buffs and Rams will play on Sept. 1 at 6 p.m. at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. The game will be televised by Pac-12 Network.

Each of Colorado’s three non-conference football games will be broadcast on the Pac-12 Network.

On Wednesday, the conference announced the game times and television arrangements for its early games, and the defending Pac-12 South champion Buffaloes have been left out of the mix for ESPN and Fox broadcasts.

CU will open the season Sept. 1 against in-state rival Colorado State at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. That game is slated to kick off at 6 p.m. Mountain and will be on the Pac-12 Network. Defending Pac-12 champ Washington got the Fox Sports 1 slot for its opener at the same time against Rutgers.

CU’s home opener at Folsom Field will be on Sept. 9 against Texas State, with a kickoff time slated for noon.

The Buffs will wrap up non-conference play on Sept. 16 at Folsom Field against Northern Colorado. That game will also kickoff at noon.

CU will begin conference play on Sept. 23 at home against Washington. Game times and TV slots for most conference games will be announced typically 12 days in advance.

Tickets for the CSU game will go on sale July 5. Tickets may be purchased at, in person at the CU ticket office, or by phone at 303-492-8337.

Season tickets are currently on sale, and single-game tickets for Folsom Field games will go on sale June 19.
