Colorado State travels to Boulder to take on the Colorado Buffaloes at home at Folsom Field on Saturday, September 16, 2023. It's been almost 10 years since the CSU Rams beat Colorado.

Summer was coming to an end, as the football season was just getting underway.

2014 saw some interesting things:

  • There was an Ebola outbreak in western Africa.
  • Jennifer Lawrence was named "Sexiest Woman Alive."
  • 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' 'Gone Girl', and 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1' were a few of the year's biggest movies.

The five biggest songs in mid-late September of 2014 were some great songs; maybe they helped propel the RAMS onto that win over the Buffs.
