What to Know
The Colorado State Rams are staring down a pretty large 17-point disadvantage in the spread for Saturday’s game. They will head out on the road to face off against the Washington State Cougars at 5 p.m. ET Saturday at Clarence D. Martin Stadium. Washington State will be strutting in after a win while the Rams will be stumbling in from a loss.
The matchup between Colorado State and the Middle Tenn. Blue Raiders last week was not particularly close, with Colorado State falling 34-19. Despite the defeat, Colorado State got a solid performance out of WR Tory Horton, who caught nine passes for three TDs and 186 yards. One of the most thrilling moments was Horton’s 69-yard TD reception in the third quarter.
Meanwhile, it was a close one, but last week Washington State sidestepped the Wisconsin Badgers for a 17-14 victory. The Cougars’ RB Nakia Watson filled up the stat sheet, punching in one rushing touchdown in addition to snatching one receiving TD.
Colorado State’s loss took them down to 0-2 while Washington State’s victory pulled them up to 2-0. Giving up four turnovers, the Rams had had trouble holding onto the ball. We’ll see if Washington State can exploit that vulnerability.
