Countdown to #FarewellHughes
Saturday will be the final football game at Sonny Lubick Field at Hughes Stadium, and CSU aims to make it a night to remember.
Kickoff is set for 8:15 p.m. as the Rams take on the Lobos of the University of New Mexico. Fans attending the game will have the opportunity to participate in the closing of the football stadium that opened in 1968.
The football stadium has been host to 261 Colorado State football games, of those 145 Rams victories and two ties. A CSU win on Saturday will help the Rams become bowl-eligible for the fourth year in a row.
Before the game, Mike Lude, the first Rams head coach will lead the team into the stadium. In attendance, will be hundreds of former players and coaches. They will all take part in the traditional Ram Walk from the parking lot to the locker room. Parking lots will be open for tailgating beginning at 4 p.m. and stadium gates open at 6:30 p.m.
During the game, there will be two photo booths set up on the east and west concourses. Fans will get a free 4x6 photo to commemorate the night. Farewell Hughes has been recognizing decades leading up to the final game, at this game, the decade of the 2010s will be remembered.
Halftime will feature a special performance by the CSU Marching Band and on-field recognition of all former players and coaches.
For postgame festivities, there will be an inclusive ceremony with all fans in attendance to close the stadium symbolically.
You can own a piece of the stadium through an exclusive online platform or at the Farewell to Huges website. You can order a piece of turf or a stadium bleacher seat or chair back seat.
