We're you hoping to score tickets to see the Colorado State Rams basketball team take on New Mexico? Too bad, tickets for the general public are already sold-out, and the free student tickets "sold out" in just 3 hours yesterday morning.

There is such a buzz going that some hearty CSU souls made it on 9News at 5AM this morning while waiting for their tickets.

I think you can officially say that most of Fort Collins has caught a little bit of "Ram Fever."

CSU, ranked #22 in the nation right now, plays at UNLV tonight, and then returns to Moby Arena for the sold-out game against New Mexico on Saturday. New Mexico is currently #16 in the county and just ahead of CSU in the Mountain West Conference standings.

Fun fact for you, did you know that Hal Kinard, the man whom Kinard Middle School is named after, played for the CSU basketball team the last time they were ranked in the top-25? All the way back in 1954 when they went by "Colorado A&M."
