This panorama of Folsom Field, taken by Christopher Gjevre, features the stadium framed by the majestic Flatirons creating the perfect backdrop for the Colorado Buffaloes. Folsom Field, named after legendary University of Colorado Coach Frederick Folsom, opened in 1924 and has been home to the Buffaloes ever since. Nicknamed the "Buffs", the Colorado Buffaloes were National Champions in 1990, and Ralphie, the live buffalo mascot, leads the team onto the field before every game. Folsom Field is the third highest stadium in college football with an elevation of 5,440 feet above sea level and has a capacity of 53,750. The university was founded in 1876 in Boulder, Colorado, and enrollment now exceeds 28,000 students.
