The Toledo Rockets have scheduled a home-and-home football series with the Colorado State Rams, per a press release from the school.

The Rockets will visit Fort Collins on September 21st, 2019, while the Rams will make the return trip to Toledo on September 25th, 2021. Toledo and Colorado State have met on the gridiron twice before, splitting the all-time series. The Rockets topped the Rams 24-14 back in 1970 while the Rams returned the favor in 1973, edging Toledo by a score of 21-14.

"We are very pleased to add the series with Colorado State to our football schedule," said Toledo AD Mike O'Brien in a press release from Toledo athletics. "Colorado State has an excellent football tradition and adds another attractive opponent on our future home schedule. It also helps bring our Toledo brand to a new part of the country."

Colorado State is coming off a 7-6 season, while going 5-3 in the competitive Mountain West Conference. Their season concluded with a loss to Mountain West foe Nevada in the Arizona Bowl. Colorado State has a long history of success and is a premier G5 football team. Colorado State should provide Toledo an exciting and competitive game that intrigues both fanbases.

"We’re excited to secure a home-and-home series with Toledo," said CSU head coach Mike Bobo in a press release from Colorado State athletics. "It’s a program that has been a consistent winner in a tough Mid-American Conference, and played in a bowl game five of the last six seasons. They will present a significant challenge for our football team."

The Rockets now two non-conference games scheduled for 2019. Toledo is slated to host BYU one week after the trip to Fort Collins, Colorado. Colorado State is Toledo's first scheduled match-up in 2021. Below is Toledo's full list of future nonconference opponents.
