FORT COLLINS, Colo. - Not only will Saturday afternoon's men's basketball contest at Moby Arena feature an exciting in-state rivalry game against Air Force, but children in attendance at the game will also get the chance to hang out with Dora the Explorer.

Saturday's game is "Take a Kid to the Game Day". Special youth tickets, available for just $4 with the purchase of an adult ticket, are available at the McGraw Athletic Center ticket office, and can also be purchased Saturday at the Moby Arena ticket booth when doors open at 2 p.m.

On top of the special ticket price, kids will have the opportunity to meet Dora the Explorer from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. and can snag a photo with the Nickelodeon star.

The game is also a Jason's Deli Kids Day, and kids are welcome to come onto the court after the game to shoot free throws and receive a coupon to Jason's Deli.

Tipoff for the nationally televised matchup is set for 3 p.m.  Colorado State is 10-1 at home this season, and looks to extend its Moby Arena win streak to nine games with a victory over the Falcons.
