BOULDER— With the announcement of the Arizona game on November 11 selling out, the Colorado Buffaloes have officially sold out the entire season for the first time in history, school officials announced Tuesday.

The Arizona game is the final home game of the 2023 season and will be Senior Day and Military Appreciation Day as Folsom Field will conclude its 100th season that day.

Fans still seeking ticket options for tickets are encouraged to visit SeatGeek, the official secondary marketplace of Colorado Athletics.

100 seasons, first-ever sell-out

The 100th season of Folsom Field saw sell out wins with CU’s 36-14 win over Nebraska on Sept. 9 and Saturday’s thrilling 45-42 double OT win over Colorado State.  CU also previously announced sell outs for the USC (Sept. 30), Stanford (Oct. 13) and Oregon State (Nov. 4) games.

In 1993, CU completely sold out of five of six home games, a standard that stood for 30 years. CU has also sold out of four of six home games a total of five times, all coming between 1990-96.

Colorado has been the focus of the sporting world to start the 2023 season, as the Deion “Coach Prime” Sanders era gets underway.  The “Prime Effect” was seen immediately as Colorado was the first team nationally to sell out of season tickets on April 17 and sold out its Spring Game for the first time, while also being the only team in the country with its spring game on the main ESPN.

The Buffs have opened the 2023 season with a 3-0 record, becoming just the fourth team in FBS history to open 3-0 after losing 11 games the previous season.

Buffaloes become television darlings

Colorado has already appeared in FOX’s premiere television spot of Noon ET twice and will again hold that spot for the USC game on Sept. 30.  This week at Oregon, the Buffs will appear on ABC’s premiere television spot of 1:30 p.m. MT.

CU played host to FOX’s pregame show Big Noon Kickoff before both the Nebraska and CSU games the last two weeks and also hosted College GameDay for the first time since 1996 as both shows made Boulder the center of the sporting world last week. CU also played at the site of Big Noon Kickoff to open the season at TCU.

CU’s first known sellout was in 1952 and the USC game will mark the 79th game in Folsom Field history that will be a sellout.
