After the loss to CMU the ThunderWolves rattled off six straight wins to end the regular season, which started with a 56-12 victory at Adams State University. The Pack will host the Grizzlies Oct. 7 in the annual Homecoming/CSU-Pueblo Athletics Hall of Fame Game. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. with a plethora of special events surrounding the weekend.

The ThunderWolves then play their solo road game of the month of October when they travel to Fort Lewis College Oct. 14 at 12 p.m.

The Pack return home to battle Black Hills State University Oct. 21 at 2 p.m. and then close the home slate Oct. 28 against Western State Colorado University. The 21st will be Family Day at the ThunderBowl, while the 28th serves as Military Appreciation Day and Senior Day.

The final two regular season games will be played on the road. On Nov. 4 CSU-Pueblo will travel to battle RMAC newcomer Dixie State University at 1 p.m. The ThunderWolves defeated the Trailblazeres 24-13 last season in Pueblo.
