Colorado Buffaloes' 2021 football schedule announced

Karl Dorrell's CU Buffs will open the 2021 season against Ed McCaffrey's UNC Bears in Boulder.

BOULDER, Colo. — The University of Colorado at Boulder (CU) and the Pac-12 Conference announced Tuesday the full slate of football games scheduled this fall.

CU will have four Pac-12 home games at Boulder's Folsom Field and seven games inside the state of Colorado.

The Buffaloes open the 2021 season on Friday, Sept. 3 at Folsom Field against the Northern Colorado Bears and new head coach Ed McCaffrey.

The second week of the season, CU hosts Texas A&M University at Empower Field at Mile High in Denver. The Pac-12 vs. SEC matchup is expected to be one of the top non-conference games on the 2021 college schedule.

The teams were scheduled to play in College Station on Sept. 19, 2020, but the game was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Buffaloes, who lead the all-time series with the Aggies 6-3, won their last meeting in 2009. Colorado is 54-35-3 overall in games played in Denver.

This fall, CU hosts Pac-12 Conference opponents Arizona, Southern California, Oregon State and Washington at Folsom Field.

The Pac-12 Championship game is scheduled for Friday, Dec. 3, at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.
