Colorado Buffaloes 2021 football schedule released
The Pac-12 has officially released the 2021 football schedule with the University of Colorado’s final slate having four league home games along with seven games in the state of Colorado for the ninth time in 10 seasons.
The regular season also opens and closes with Friday games, marking the 26th straight year that the Buffaloes will have at least one non-Saturday contest.
The non-conference schedule has been set for years. The Buffs will open the season at home at Folsom Field on Friday night, Sept. 3 against Northern Colorado, which will mark the debut of UNC head coach and former Denver Bronco Ed McCaffrey. The Buffaloes lead the series 10-2, with the only meeting in the last 87 years coming in 2017, when CU defeated the Bears in Boulder, 41-21.
It will be only Colorado’s second season opener at home since 2009, coupled with last year’s 48-42 thriller over UCLA.
The Buffs will open Pac-12 league play on the road for just the third time in the last eight years in traveling to Tempe to take on Arizona State on Saturday, Sept. 25; all ASU home games in the month of September are mandatory night contests. The Sun Devils leads the series, 8-3, but CU has won three of the last four; the 2020 game in Boulder was canceled due to the pandemic.
The Pac-12 Championship game is scheduled for Friday, Dec. 3, at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.
Season ticket renewals will go out in mid-March; those who renew will have the first opportunity to purchase tickets for the Texas A&M game in Denver before they go on sale to the general public (and at a season ticket holder discount).
All single game tickets will be available for purchase in July. Anyone interested in purchasing season tickets, please call 303-492-8282, and to donate to Buffs Football, click here: www.cubuffclub.com/FBGive.
At present, CU is preparing several scenarios related to fan attendance this fall, which will be dependent on the course of the COVID-19 pandemic and public health guidelines entering the season.
