The natural grass field, which is almost exactly one mile (5360 ft) high, is the third highest climbing major college football stadium, just behind Air Force Academy and Wyoming University. The 54,000 site was originally named Colorado Stadium before replacing its name in 1944 with the honor of the current championship, the beloved Buffaloes coach, Fred Folsom.
