CSU’s new on-campus stadium will host a football game earlier than expected. The opening date for the $220 million facility has been moved up two weeks.

CSU’s Department of Athletics announced that the first football game in the new stadium will be played Saturday, August 26 against Oregon State. The Rams had expected to play the first game at the stadium September 9 against Abilene Christian but the Rams and Beavers agreed to move their game – originally slated for Sept. 23 – to the last Saturday in August.

CSU proposed the move to Oregon State in order to avoid playing 12 consecutive games this fall. CSU’s original schedule did not include a bye week.
