Collegian game ball goes to. wide receiver Damon Morton

Morton continued his stellar season with a seven catch, 94-yard effort. His two touchdowns brought his season total to five. Morton also made one of the better catches in Rams history (see Play of the day).

Quote of the day

“We know that the team that has come out in the last three weeks is not who we are.”

-Defensive end Jesse Nading following CSU’s third straight conference loss. Nading returned from an ankle injury, which had forced him out of the Wyoming game.

Play of the day

All season long, wide receiver Damon Morton has made plays. But none have been better than the one he made during the third quarter of Saturday’s game. On the play, Morton ran an out-and-up move before running along the sideline. Caleb Hanie’s pass threaded the needle and landed squarely in diving Morton’s outstretched right hand. Morton’s one-handed touchdown gave the Rams a 19-10 lead.

Eight down, four to go

The Rams will have to recover from this heartbreaker quickly with the Brigham Young Cougars next on the docket. The Cougars are undefeated in the Mountain West and have a two-game lead in the conference race. Next week’s game starts at 4 p.m.
