COLORADO AT OHIO STATE GAMEWEEK: Colorado football history goes back to 1890

The University of Colorado football program has been playing competitively on the Boulder campus since 1890.

The early games, which were similar to rugby than actual modern football, were played against the Colorado School of the Mines and Utah.

The football stadium, originally named “Colorado Stadium”, was later changed to Folsom Field in November of 1944 in honor of Coach Fred Folsom, one of the most respected college football coaches in his day.

The nickname Buffaloes or Golden Buffaloes, was selected by the campus newspaper in a contest with a $5 prize in 1934 won by Andrew Dickson of Boulder.

In 1947, marked a key point in race relations on campus. The Buffaloes joined the Missouri Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Association, commonly known as the Big Six, then became known as the Big Seven, and later the Big Eight. Since 1996, the conference has been named the Big 12. The Big 12 does not claim any Big 8 history as its own.

However, Missouri and Oklahoma had rules which would have allowed them to challenge teams with “colored” players. A student outcry led by the campus newspaper Silver and Gold, led to a movement against such restrictions which expanded to all of the campuses and lead to a repeal.

On June 10, 2010, Colorado announced that they would join the Pacific-12 Conference in all sports beginning on July 1, 2011, leaving the Big 12 Conference behind.

The Buffaloes have won one national championship, in 1990.

Bill McCartney, who is one of the founders of the religious movement “Promise Keepers”, is the most famous head coach, leading Colorado to their only National Championship in 1990.

The Colorado football program is 16th on the all-time NCAA Division I list and 22nd in all-time winning percentage at .614. Since Folsom Field was built in 1924, the Buffaloes have been 280-152-10 at home. The Nebraska game in 2006 was the school’s 1,100th football game.
