CSU’s Home Opener This Weekend – What You Need to Know
For the Rams, this weekend is all about redemption.
We're entering into another full weekend of college football. The beginning of the season is reserved for non-conference games. Essentially, these games are meant to give a team in-game experience without the weight of conference play looming overhead. However, not all of these games are a walk in the park. Some games are all about bragging rights.
Unfortunately, that game was last week for Colorado State and they fell 52-31 to Colorado.
It's not the way you want to start the season and it's certainly not how you want to show up against your in-state rival. However, the season is still young. Not to mention, sometimes it takes a loss to reveal a team's weak spots and show a squad what they're made of. I've got nothing but confidence in our Rams moving forward.
Some bright spots from the game include Dante Wright scoring both a rushing and receiving touchdown. Quarterback Collin Hill also threw for 374 yards and three touchdowns.
Hopefully the offense can roll again Saturday.
