A little over a week ago we mentioned that the Buffs were exploring a one game trip to Columbus to take on the Ohio State Buckeyes IF they were going to be making the move to the Pac-10 (12) in 2011. Well, the first part is now official:
The Buffaloes will travel to Ohio Stadium on Sept. 24, 2011, to play the host Buckeyes; the facility is the fourth largest in the country with a seating capacity of 102,329. It will mark the fifth time the two schools will play in football, the third time in Columbus, as the previous two times represented the sixth and eighth largest crowds a Colorado football team has ever played before. OSU leads the series, 3-1.
No announcement was made regarding the move to the Pac-10, and the press release still mentions an early season match-up with Cal. However, it's starting to look more and more like that will be a conference game, and the first of the Buffaloes tenure as a member of the Pac-12 conference.
