Snow Forces Closure Of Campus Fields For CU-USC Game
Release: November 22, 2013
By: CUBuffs.com

BOULDER — Due to the snowfall the latter part of the week, the grass fields at the University of Colorado will be closed for the Buffaloes’ final home game Saturday night against the University of Southern California.

University officials made the decision Friday morning to close all fields, meaning that there will be no parking permitted on Franklin Field just east of Folsom Field, and in addition, all pregame activities scheduled for Duane Physics Lawn and Benson Field have been relocated or cancelled for the safety and comfort of those planning to attend.

The Alumni C-Club tailgate will move to Boedecker Gym in the Coors Events Center, which is located in the basketball/volleyball practice facility which can be accessed off Regent Drive.  Ralphie’s Corral has been cancelled.

Athletic department officials will determine on Saturday if the field conditions inside the stadium are safe for Ralphie, CU’s live buffalo mascot, to make her usual run leading the team out on to the field ahead of the game’s 7:37 p.m. kickoff.

Those with permits to park at Franklin Field may park in lot 494 near the Coors Event Center.  All surface parking lots will open at 3:30 p.m.

On non-game days, Franklin Field is a well-maintained athletic field used by campus recreation and club sports as well as providing an environmentally friendly open space for the beauty of the CU campus.  It is important that the integrity of University fields are not destroyed as it will displace programs that use them and cost a significant amount of money to repair.
