Overall, i found the Folsom Field experience to be average. The good points. 1. The views. If you sit on the visiting side, the views of the Flatirons and surrounding mountains are beautiful. 2. Ralphie. Watching the CU mascot run is a cool treat for any college football fan. The not so bad points. 1. The stadium is quite old... More

This was our first visit to the stadium for the Buffs homecoming game. Here are some things you might need to know if you don't frequent other stadiums. Read the list of restricted items on the websites on sizes of coolers and bags allowed. Arrive early because there is no public parking close to the entrance; closer lots are for... More

Watching a football game at CU is great... Watching Ralphie run even when the team is not doing so well is a great deal of fun.

Great experience in perfect weather. It's not as huge as other college football stadiums but it was my alma mater so it mattered. It's not everyday that you watch a football game below but when you look up and around, you see mountains.

Amazing and historic stadium. just an awesome field and awesome views of the mountains from the stands. You can hear the stadium on big plays everywhere in boulder. Could use an upgrade in terms of the amenities (wish they sold beer!) but otherwise its great. Stinks the Buffs haven't been good in awhile!

The Buffs aren't very good these days, but that doesn't mean you should skip Folsom Field. It has hands down the most beautiful stadium view I've ever seen as it looks onto the Flat Irons and base of the Rocky Mountains. The atmosphere is great as Ralphie the Buffalo storms onto the field in what is one of the finest... More

I have been to about 10 college football stadiums. I would rate this one as average as far as atmosphere. The fans of course are rude to oppossing fan base. The stadium is nice, not very loud.

I have been to several college football stadiums and have to say Folsom Field is simply average. The view of the mountains in the background is spectacular, but the stadium and surroundings are average. It is not a bad university, but small and insignificant compared to the rest of the Big 12 and Pac 12.

The Romans had their amphitheatre and Boulder has its Folsom Field. We watched this being constructed and marvelled as we saw it emerge. Strolling by evokes memories of Graduations and Boulder Boulder finish lines! With both boys graduated and hardly another race left in me, it's great to just walk by and reminisce.

This is a great place to go for a college football game. Yes, this place has had a reputation of poor treatment of opposing fans in the past. However, those days are really in the past. There is a great gameday atmosphere outside and inside the stadium. The trick is finding a parking spot. I usually recommend parking at the... More
