We're close. We are really, really close. I love the Rockies and baseball season. I love the warmth and outdoor activities that summer brings. But, I'm ready for it to be over. I'm ready for cooler temperatures and falling leaves and ... football season. For this week's top five we are going to take a look at the top five upcoming football games in the state of Colorado.
5. Colorado vs. Colorado State - Sept. 4
It's always big; it doesn't matter the situation. However, the game in 2010 will be huge. Dan Hawkins HAS to win this game to have any sort of momentum going into the season. The lackluster effort to start the season in 2009 set the tone for the entire year, and another contest with a similar level of effort and results will severely damage the fan base. Throw in the fact that the game is once again at Invesco Field, and you have all the makings of a tension-filled game.
