Colorado Buffaloes Moving to Pac-12 for 2011 Season

ColoradoThe Colorado Buffaloes have announced that they will join the Pacific 12 Conference for the 2011 football season. They will exit the Big 12 after this season and will forfeit $6,863,000 in revenue from the conference.

Utah will also join the former Pac-10 in 2011 which means the conference, to be named the Pac-12, will have 12 teams and will be eligible for a conference championship game.

The Big 12 has approved their football schedules for the 2011 season and will likely announce them next week. Teams will play a 9-game, round-robin schedule with no championship game.

Colorado’s 2011 schedule, like much of the current Pac-10, will be changing over the next few months. The Buffaloes will open the 2011 season at Hawaii (09/03) and are scheduled to host California the following week (09/10) in what could be their first Pac-12 game.

On Sept. 17, Colorado will play Colorado State in Denver, followed by a Sept. 24 trip to play Ohio State for a $1.4 million payday. The Buffaloes final non-conference game is Oct. 8 at home against Fresno State.

Under the Hawaii Exemption, Colorado is allowed to play an extra non-conference game since they are traveling to play Hawaii.

    Is it me or does it seem Colorado is slipping backwards into being a poor team again….if they don’t get it together,they’ll be battling Washington State (a perfect team for the WAC)for the basement of the Pac-12
