Here at Mile High Sports we are a staff divided. But that’s not all too dissimilar to just about every office (and many homes) here in Colorado. Both Buffs and Rams populate our ranks and we’ve shared great partnerships with both schools over the years.

So, as the 2017 Rocky Mountain Showdown approaches, we’re committed to providing balanced coverage between the two schools as we preview what is shaping up to be a fantastic game at Sports Authority Field at Mile High on Friday.
