The Buffs ended the fall season on November 16 by taking care of Wyoming 50-14. Finishing the season 7-2 (5-1 in league play), #20 in the D1A Rankings, and 3rd (**2nd) in the Rocky Mountain Division.
If not for the forfeit of the New Mexico Game, the Buffs would have been in 2nd and seeking revenge against BYU in the Rocky Mountain Championship Final. Our replacement, CSU chose not to show up! They must have been too distraught from their 36-5 beat-down we gave them a few weeks back! It Sucks to be a CSU Ram, indeed!
At the end of a successful Fall 2019 campaign, the team has accomplished quite a lot; Beat CSU, Beat Air Force, and #20 in the D1A Rankings. While this is a great start to head coach, Chris Hanson's tenure at CU. He has let it be known that this is just the beginning! Going into 2020 and beyond, the coaching staff and players will want to continue their dominance in Colorado, while seeking to expand their dominance over Utah (specifically BYU), the Conference, and nationally!
These goals are quite lofty, but can be achieved by building on the team's fitness and recruiting top talent, both nationally and internationally. The coaching staff has been hard at work these last few weeks striving towards these goals.
With that being said, the link between a large alumni and booster network and tangible success on the field is stronger now more than ever. Please see below for different ways for help out.
Going into the Spring 2020 season, there are no scheduled games for real rugby, but 7's season schedule will be announced by the Conference soon. The team is also working on setting up friendlies for full on rugby. Once games are announced, we will report out!
