The football game between Fresno State and Colorado in Boulder was postponed on Friday because of flooding that’s devastating the state.
The teams were scheduled to play Saturday at Folsom Field. No makeup date has been announced.
The area has been hit hard in recent days by torrential showers, leading to flooding in northern Colorado, especially mountain communities around Boulder. The university has canceled classes through at least Friday.
Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre said the team has moved several players into hotels after they had to leave their homes because of flooding.
Athletic director Rick George said in a conference call Friday that he will begin discussing the options of rescheduling the game with Fresno State in the next few days. The contest could be made up at the end of the season or possibly even cancelled altogether if no dates work out.
Fresno State (2-0) opens Mountain West Conference play next week against Boise State, while the Buffs (2-0) have a week off before beginning their Pac-12 schedule at Oregon State on Sept. 28.
Up the road in Fort Collins, the game between Colorado State and Cal Poly will still be played Saturday.
The Colorado Rapids of Major League Soccer will still hold their match against FC Dallas on Saturday, saying in a statement “the stadium and surrounding parking lots have not suffered any damage. As always, we will continue to monitor the situation to make sure that our event is safe for fans, staff and players.”
