Colorado State had a doubly sad day on the field yesterday, as beloved mascot Cam the Ram passed away on the same day as the annual Rocky Mountain Showdown–which the CSU Rams lost to the Buffaloes at the University of Colorado by only 27-24. [photo: Doug Pensinger/Getty]
Cam was 6 years old, and had just become the father of five earlier this year. He leaves behind a mourning campus–including the student volunteers who regularly groomed him. CSU fans will always remember Cam for his excited frolicking through the end zone in celebration of the Rams’ many touchdowns. He was replaced before game time by Cam the Ram #25.
