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.
