Colorado State (1-3) vs. Illinois State (2-0) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
Colorado State can’t just walk through this one.
Illinois State has been outstanding so far, beating Eastern Illinois and St. Xavier by a combined score of 94-10, with the Redbirds showing off a dominant pass defense and an offense that’s balanced and isn’t having an issue moving the chains.
Colorado State can’t come up with any consistency, shocking Arkansas, getting blown out by Colorado and Florida, and now, at home, desperately needing a win over the FCSer to get the bowl hopes back on track.
KJ Carta-Samuels, has been fine, but this ISU defense is the real deal – it’s not going to get picked clean. But the Ram offense will score early to set the tone, and it’ll answer every good Redbird drive with a scoring drive of its own.
It won’t be a wipeout, but the Rams will survive and advance.
