CU Buffs plan to debut Ralphie VI in season opener

Hollywood, California – It’s been a long time since the general public has been able to walk through the gates of Folsom Field to watch the Colorado Buffaloes play a football game.

It’s been even longer since Ralphie ran on the Folsom Field turf.

However the wait is almost over.

Athletic Director Rick George told at Pac-12 Media Day that CU plans to make his debut for Ralphie VI when the Buffs open the season on Sept. 3 against Northern Colorado. Ralphie’s running plans are currently being finalized.

“We have a Ralphie,” said George. “I’m excited. Ralphie has been a part of our history for 50 years and we hope it continues.”

Ralph V retired after the 2019 season, but did not play in any of the final three home games of that season. The Ralphie V had become overly wired and was not responding to operator signals as usual, so it was deemed unsafe to continue driving.

Ralphie V led the football team on the field for 12 years before his retirement. His last run was on October 5, 2019, when the Buffs played Arizona.
