Saturday’s Colorado football game against 25th-ranked Nebraska at Folsom Field is officially a sellout, according to CU officials.
It will be the first sellout at Folsom since the 2016 regular season finale at Utah, when the Buffs clinched the Pac-12 South division title with a 27-22 victory. Prior to the game against Utah, the Buffs had not had a sellout since Oct. 4, 2008, against Texas.
For this season, CU sold 20,284 season tickets, a jump of 1,000 over last year. The student allotment of 12,254 tickets sold out earlier this week.
Single game tickets for the Nebraska game sold out several months ago, but tickets were still available through season- and three-game packages through the end of the business day on Friday.
While Folsom Field’s official capacity is listed as 50,183, the Buffs had a crowd of 52,301 for the game against Utah in 2016. More than 51,000 tickets were sold for Saturday’s game.
After Saturday, CU has five other home games this season. Beginning Monday, CU will sell five-game season ticket packages at a reduced rate.
