  • Sonny Lubick Field at Hughes Stadium is an outdoor football stadium in Fort Collins, Colorado owned and operated by Colorado State University but located about four miles (6 km) west of the school's main campus. It is the home field of the Colorado State Rams of the Mountain West Conference. The Rams are slated to move to Colorado State Stadium for the 2017 season. Future plans for Hughes Stadium are unknown but it is unlikely it will be left dormant, given away, nor developed for high density use. Hughes Stadium opened in 1968. It replaced the old Colorado Field, a 12,000-seat on-campus stadium. Hughes Stadium sits in a natural oval bowl, with seating on three sides and an open grass berm (not open for seating) behind the south endzone. The west (home side) stands are expanded out of the bowl and capped by a press box. The stadium is named for Harry W. Hughes, the head coach for 31 seasons (1911–41) at what was then known as Colorado Agricultural. The playing surface itself was named in 2003 in honor of then head coach Sonny Lubick. The winningest coach in school history, Lubick led the Rams for 15 seasons (1993-2007), winning six conference titles and nine bowl games. The stadium has a seating capacity of 32,500 with club seats and 12 luxury suites, completed in 2005. The playing field, at an elevation of 5,190 feet (1,582 m) above sea level, was natural grass for the stadium's first 38 seasons; FieldTurf was installed in the summer of 2006. The first game at Hughes Stadium was played on September 28, 1968, a 17-12 loss to North Texas State, led by Mean Joe Greene. From October 1989 to August 1991, the Rams won eight consecutive games at the stadium, a school record. Bob Dylan recorded the NBC television special and live concert album Hard Rain at Hughes Stadium during a rainstorm in May 1976. (en)
