1. The Cannon
After each Rams score, a large cannon booms and female students are thrown high in the air. This is a pretty unique spectacle to watch, and it gets the blood flowing.
2. CAM the Ram
CAM is the live Rambouillet sheep mascot of Colorado state. CAM can be found at every CSU football game, so make sure to stop by and snap a pic with him.
3. CSU Football Murals
When at Canvas Stadium make sure to check out the CSU football murals. The murals pay tribute to some of the best moments in Rams football and are a must-see when attending a game here.
4. Border War
Colorado State and Wyoming have a long-running rivalry that dates back all the way to 1899 when the Rams shutout the Cowboys 12-0. The rivalry saw the addition of the Bronze Boot in 1968, which was started by the ROTC detachments of the two schools. Outside of the Colorado Buffaloes, Wyoming is probably Colorado State’s biggest rival, so make sure to be in attendance for this game if possible.
5. CSU Band
Despite the team’s recent struggles, the CSU marching band always does its best to keep energy high and the fans into the game. One of the better bands you will see, they’ll surely pump up the crowd by playing the school’s fight song.

This is a great tradition that makes you feel like you’re part of the action, so don’t miss out on the Ram Walk when attending a game at Colorado State.
8. Ram-Falcon Trophy
When Air Force and Colorado State meet the victor walks away with the Ram-Falcon Trophy. The trophy dated back to 1980 and was created by former Colorado State ROTC commander Shelly Godkin. Air Force leads the all-time series between these Colorado-based schools 32-20-1, but the Rams will look to put a dent in that gap the next time these two schools meet.
9. The View
Being located in Colorado, Colorado State has its fair share of the mountainous country surrounding it. The view from the stadium is gorgeous with flowing hills and mountains covering the landscape. Watching a game here might be harder than you think with the beautiful views to distract you.
