#5 Boise State Visits CSU Today

The highest ranked team to ever visit CSU will make its appearance this afternoon when fifth-ranked Boise State (5-0, 0-0) kicks off against the Rams (3-2, 1-0) at 4pm in Hughes Stadium. CSU is a 32-point underdog, but has upset on its mind. Fans are encouraged to wear white to what is expected to be the best attended home game of the season.

This week’s notable storylines…

  • CSU, one of just three programs in the nation to host two teams ranked in the AP’s top five since the beginning of 2010, welcomes the  No. 5 Broncos, tied for the highest-ranked team ever to visit Fort Collins (also No. 5 TCU in 2010, No. 5 CU in 1996).
  • The Rams will wear all-white uniforms at home for the first time in 55 years, teaming with PVHS to white out cancer. Fans also are encouraged to wear white to the game. The last time CSU wore a white jersey, with gold pants, in a home game was also to welcome a new team to its conference, in 1980 against Air Force.
  • CSU has lost six starters and 19 combined starts to injury already in the first half of 2011.
  • The Rams are coming off their first bye since Nov. 14, 2009. They’re 1-1 under Steve Fairchild after the bye.
  • The game pits BSU, tied for first in the nation with 0.4 sacks allowed per game, against CSU, tied for third in the country with 3.8 sacks per contest.
  • Nordly Capi, who leads the country in sacks per game for the fifth time in six weeks this year, needs a sack to establish the CSU record with sacks in six straight games.
  • Pete Thomas needs 173 passing yards to eclipse the program’s top 10, and 249 to become the 10th CSU player to reach 4,000 career.
