High winds for Arizona-Colorado game

High winds ahead of a winter storm forced the University of

Colorado to curtail pregame tailgating before the Buffaloes faced

the University of Arizona on Saturday.

The school scrubbed a school-sponsored tailgate dubbed

”Ralphie’s Corral” that features bounce houses, and a tailgate

for former letterwinners was moved inside to the basketball


All tailgaters were prohibited from putting up any tents.

The National Weather Service issued the high wind warning for

much of the front range because of a storm moving in from the

Pacific Northwest. It remains in effect until 6 p.m. MT.

Constant winds of 30-50 mph were expected during the game with

gust in excess of 75 mph.
