If you sit on the east side of the stadium you have a great view of the Flatirons to the west - spectacular. Not many better places, if any, to watch a college football game on a fall afternoon

Great stadium in a great location. Crowd was nice. Team could be better. Seats were decent. I'm used to (and love!) "SEC Football" but it was nice to see a big crowd that didn't need to be all dressed up to watch a football game.

Older stadium. Picture opporunities with Ralphie. Fun to watch him lead the team on the field. I thought we paid a lot for tickets considering the number of empty seats. Wont do that next time. CU kinda gets screwed on Game start times. 11am...Really come on. I think they get a fair number of late starts as well which hurts... More

This is by far the friendliest football stadium I've ever been too.. And I was rooting for the other team! Great tailgating. Beautiful stadium. Watching Ralphie run onto the field was amazing! My seat was in the CU student section and they tolerated me well, and I'm a totally obnoxious football fan. Great experience that I highly recommend.

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
