The University of Toledo and Colorado State University have agreed to play a home-and-home series in football beginning in 2019, UT Vice President and Athletic Director Mike O’Brien announced yesterday.
The Rockets will play at Colorado State Sept. 21, 2019, while the Rams will make the return trip to Toledo Sept. 25, 2021.
“We are very pleased to add the series with Colorado State to our football schedule,” O’Brien said. “Colorado State has an excellent football tradition and adds another attractive opponent on our future home schedule. It also helps bring our Toledo brand to a new part of the country.”
Toledo and Colorado State have met twice before on the gridiron, with the Rockets claiming a 24-14 victory in 1970 and the Rams winning at home in 1973 by a score of 21-14.
Colorado State was 7-6 in 2015, 5-3 in the Mountain West Conference. The Rams played Nevada in the Arizona Bowl, falling 28-23.
