Minnesota (2-0) vs. Colorado State (2-1) Game Preview


Date: Saturday, September 24th
Game Time: 12:00 pm
Venue: TCF Bank Stadium, Minneapolis, MN
Network: ESPNU

Minnesota needed everything in the bag to pull out last year’s win over Colorado State, but this time around there’s no reason or excuse to keep this close.

At least there isn’t if the Gophers are the real deal.

But this is just as much about a Colorado State team that got throttled in the opener by a Colorado team we all know now can play. The close call against UTSA doesn’t look so bad after Arizona State had a hard time with the Roadrunners, and last week’s Northern Colorado win was finally a chance to let loose.

With home games against Wyoming and Utah State up next, a win would be massive for a Ram team still looking to find a few forward passes to complete on a regular basis.

The CSU secondary has been a disaster, and that’s where Mitch Leidner has to kick it in.

Spotty in the opener against Oregon State, the Gopher passing game got well against Indiana State, but this is a better test against a decent Ram team that might not make this an easy out.
