Ram Town
Saturday, noon

Located just east of the team tunnel entrance at Hughes Stadium, Ram Town features interactive play areas for kids, including the Ram Locker Room Experience and an obstacle course. Best of all, Ram Town is free! There will be plenty of food and beverages available for every Ram fan.

When the football team arrives at the stadium at approximately 1 p.m., Ram fans can join the CSU marching band, spirit squads, cheerleaders and mascot in forming a tunnel for the team to walk through as it makes its way to the locker room.

Kentucky Derby winner

During the game Saturday, the athletic department will honor Leonard Blach, a CSU graduate and co-owner of Mine That Bird, the horse that won the 2009 Kentucky Derby.

Ram-to-Fan Touchdown Catch

In another promotion, the Ram-to-Fan Touchdown Catch, former New England Patriots, New York Jets and Denver Broncos lineman Clint Oldenburg, an all-conference player at CSU, will throw a pass to one lucky contestant on the field. Entry forms are available in Thursday’s Rocky Mountain Collegian and can be dropped off at the CSU Book Store

Aggies to Rams available

Also Saturday, author John Hirn will be available on the south concourse selling his freshly printed, hard-cover editions of Aggies to Rams: The History of Football at Colorado State University.

The book retails for $45, but Hirn is unselfishly donating 80 percent of net profits to the CSU Athletics General Scholarship Fund. [More]
