UPDATE: We have a winner! The tickets go to Jenn, who won with the following response:
I've always wanted to go to this game. I just don't know who to root for. :-( Poor me... I did my undergrad at CU and grad school at CSU. But I'm thinking the Rams have it this year; just a gut feeling. What do I know? :-)
Congratulations, Jenn. Hopefully this weekend's game helps you resolve your conflicted loyalties.
Original post:Contest! Contest! Contest! We'd like to give you two tickets (plus an on-field-visit pass and one for parking) to Sunday's Rocky Mountain Showdown between the CSU Rams and the CU Buffs. All you need to do is tell us in the comment section of this post why your favorite of the two teams is going to win and be better than people expect this season.
