CU Buffs-Texas A&M football game may be moved to Empower Field at Mile High

The Colorado Buffaloes were set to play Texas A&M in football for the first time in 11 years this fall before the coronavirus came along.

With that game canceled after the Pac-12 opted to play a conference-only schedule, there’s a possibility the teams’ Sept 11, 2021, meeting could be played at Empower Field at Mile High instead of Folsom Field in Boulder.

Texas A&M athletic director Ross Bjork said as much while talking with media members Thursday afternoon after the SEC announced its own plans for a conference-only schedule in 2020.

“We have an obligation to play a Power 5 nonconference game and so we need that game,” Bjork said in a story published by “There’s no other available opportunities out there. Colorado has approached us about playing at…Mile High Stadium. …
