Fresno State (1-8) vs. Colorado State (4-4) Game Preview
Date: Saturday, Nov. 5
Game Time: 3:30 pm
Venue: Hughes Stadium, Fort Collins, CO
Network: Campus Insiders
Fresno State is going through the motions before it can figure out what direction the program is going, but it could really, really use something positive after losing seven straight and not showing a whole lot of hope for anything positive.
Fortunately for the Bulldogs, this is their last road game of the season, and now they can try turning the offense loose to throw and throw some more against a porous Colorado State pass defense that doesn’t come up with enough big plays.
This might be a rocky year for the Rams, but they’re still in the hunt for a bowl game needing to win two of the last three games after coming up with a win against the Bulldogs – and it has to become a win against the Bulldogs.
What’s been the problem throughout the season? The offense hasn’t been consistent enough, the defense can’t come up with third down stops, and the D tends to bend, AND break.
But there shouldn’t be any problems against a punchless Fresno State team that came out fired up first half against Air Force, but couldn’t hold up.
One of the few things that’s been solid so far for the Rams has been the running game that’s gotten rolling in two of the last three games. Colorado State is 4-0 when running for 200 yards or more – including in those two games in the last three weeks – and 0-4 when it doesn’t.
Fresno State has allowed 200 rushing yards or more in every game but the one win over Sacramento State.
