Join the Alumni Association and the Buffs on the road in 2015

When the Colorado football team goes on the road, so does the CU-Boulder Alumni Association!

We’ll be hosting tailgating events for at least four of the Buffs’ six road games in 2015, so mark your calendars if we’re coming to your city or if you’re planning a trip to see CU on the road this year.

Join the Buffs in Hawaii!

Join the Buffs in Hawaii!

  • Hawaii: Thursday, Sept. 3
    Join us in Honolulu as the Buffs open the 2015 season.

  • Arizona State: Saturday, Oct. 10
    We’ll be in Tempe as the Buffs take on the Sun Devils in their first Pac-12 road game of the year. Concession-style food and drink will be available for purchase. We’ll provide more details for the event as soon as they are available.
  • UCLA: Saturday, Oct. 31
    Our Pasadena tailgate at Brookside Golf Course with concession-style food and drink for purchase will be the perfect place to get pumped to watch the Buffs take on the Bruins. Check back soon for more event details.
  • Utah: Saturday, Nov. 28
    We’ll be on hand for the regular-season finale as the Buffs visit Salt Lake City. Get ready to cheer on the Buffs and enjoy with concession-style food and drink for purchase with fellow CU fans! More details will be available soon!

We’re also working on something special for the Oregon State and Washington State road games, so check back for more details as football season approaches.

Watch Parties – Just because you can’t make the road trip or if you call somewhere other than Boulder home, doesn’t mean you have to watch the Buffs alone! Instead, join your local alumni chapter for a watch party. Visit our chapters page to locate the chapter nearest you or our watch party page for more information.

2016 and 2017
– Also in the works are events for the Buffs’ road games at Michigan in 2016 and at Nebraska in 2017. These games are must-see events for CU fans as the Buffs visit the Big House in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and play their former Big 12 rival in Lincoln, Nebraska.


Away pre-game events are a cooperative effort among the Office of the President, CU-Boulder Office of the Chancellor, the Alumni Association and the CU Office of Advancement.
