FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - The state's biggest football programs will continue to meet each year in an agreement announced Tuesday by athletic directors at the University of Colorado and Colorado State University.
The 115-year-old series was in jeopardy of another hiatus after Mike Bohn moved next year's game from Invesco Field in Denver to Folsum Field in Boulder, and Paul Kowalczyk responded by moving the 2010 game to Fort Collins - costing the schools several hundred thousand dollars in guarantees.
Dates and sites of the games after 2010, when the current contract expires, haven't been worked out.
Colorado State has made it clear it likes having the game there, but Colorado moved next year's game to Boulder so it would have a sixth home game. CSU responded by moving the 2010 game to its home field in Fort Collins.
The schools, located 45 miles apart, first met in 1893 and have played 80 times.
There was a quarter-century dormancy between 1958-1983, but the schools have met each year since 1995.
