Colorado Party Supplies Will Help Make Your Event a Winner!

Sure, Colorado Party Supplies are perfect for Buffaloes tailgates, game-viewing parties, graduations and other special events, but what about the University of Colorado Boulder itself?

Founding of the University

The University of Colorado Boulder, often referred to as CU-Boulder, is located in Boulder, Colorado. Founded in 1876, five months before Colorado was admitted to the Union, the doors opened on September 5, 1877. It was the prize of a competition between two cities, Boulder and Canon City. The loser, Canon City, won the consolation prize of the Colorado State Prison.

Colorado Buffaloes Football

The Colorado Buffaloes football team was first formed in 1890, and has enjoyed much football success since that time. Currently the team ranks 16th in all time wins and 22nd in all time win percentage. Interestingly, the Buffaloes rank 1st all-time in fourth down conversions and are only one of two teams in college football history to convert a 5th down (due to an official’s mistake).

1990 National Championship

In 1990, under Coach Bill McCartney, the Buffaloes won their first (and only) National Championship. That season, Colorado started with a tie against Tennessee, a late win in the second game, before a one-point loss to Illinois in the third game. A National Championship seemed out of reach at this point with Colorado dropping to #20 in the rankings.

Following the Illinois loss, however, the Buffaloes went on to win the rest of their games, including wins over a number of highly ranked teams. Among them were #22 ranked Texas, #12 Washington, #22 Oklahoma, #3 Nebraska and Notre Dame in the Orange Bowl to finish the season. Their final record ended up 11 wins, 1 loss and 1 tie resulting in a split with Georgia Tech (11-0-1) for the National Championship. While there will always be some debate about who deserved the National Championship more, Georgia Tech with its better record, or Colorado with its tougher schedule, without an actual championship game, a split was probably for the best.
