By Brian Wilmer -

Colorado and Houston have scheduled a home-and-home football series for 2025 and 2026, Stadium’s Brett McMurphy reported Friday.

Houston’s athletic department provided further detail in a release Friday.

Houston’s TDECU Stadium will host the first game, to be played Sept. 6, 2025. The teams will face off in Boulder on Sept. 12, 2026.

The Cougars and Buffaloes have played just once in the schools’ history, a 29-17 Colorado decision in the 1971 Bluebonnet Bowl.

Colorado joins UTSA (Aug. 30) on the Cougars’ 2025 slate, with a Sept. 5, 2026 home game against Utah and Sept. 26 game at Georgia Southern also on that year’s schedule for Houston.

The Buffaloes also have a home-and-home with Georgia Tech on the docket for those years, with a road game at Northwestern in 2026.

Colorado also announced that they have added the Colgate Raiders to their 2027 football schedule. Colorado will host Colgate on Sept. 4, 2027 and the Raider will receive a $600,000 guarantee for the game.

That 2026 schedule is going to be brutal for Colorado, but good on ’em for having 11 P5 and 1 P6 game.
