Last Homecoming Game Ever at Sonny Lubick Field at Hughes Stadium [PICTURES]
The last Homecoming Game ever played on Sonny Lubick Field at Hughes Stadium was Saturday, October 8th, 2016. The CSU Rams beat the Utah State Aggies 31-24 in a televised night game. It was a thrilling game as Colorado State had to come from behind with their back-up quarterback after trailing by 14 points at the half.
My wife and I were there for our last time at the old stadium. Although we are very much looking forward to sitting in the new on-campus stadium next year, it was a bitter-sweet night. It was tough to say goodbye to a stadium where I have seen dozens and dozens of Rams games over the past 3 decades. I watched from the stands when I was a student at CSU and from the press box while working at K99 for over a quarter of a century. I'm glad we got to be there for the last Homecoming.
I thought the best way to say goodbye to Hughes Stadium was to have my wife take a few pictures. Thank you, Jenny, for getting these great pics:
