Colorado students form outrageously long ticket line for Colorado State contest
Colorado’s early season success has clearly captured the hearts of the student body.
The No. 18 Buffaloes will host in-state rival Colorado State in Week 3 against the pregame backdrop of ESPN’s College GameDay and FOX Sports’ Big Noon Kickoff.
This will be GameDay’s first trip to Colorado since 1996.
On Wednesday morning, a video from 247Sports showed an outrageously long line of Colorado students camped out for tickets to the game.

The hype around Colorado is palpable.
Colorado’s Week 2 victory vs. rival Nebraska, the first home contest for new head coach Deion Sanders, featured a crowd of 53,241 people. That made it the program’s most attended game in 15 years.
FOX Sports confirmed the Week 2 matchup between Colorado and Nebraska was viewed by an audience of 8.73 million people. That counts as the most-watched Pac-12 contest ever on FOX, as well ranking No. 10 all time for a regular season game on the channel.
Colorado State is 0-1 with a 50-24 loss to Washington State. Colorado leads the all-time series 67-22-2 against Colorado State, with a 5-game winning streak against the Rams.
