PLAY OF THE DAY

In a day when the defense continued its dominance of opponents, Jeff Horinek capped off a great day when he picked off a Rocky Hinds pass deep inside Rebel territory and returned it 14 yards for the final Rams score. It was first interception returned for the touchdown since Darryl Williams turned the trick last season against Wyoming.

COLLEGIAN GAME BALL GOES TO,,,

Quarterback Caleb Hanie – Hanie continued his extremely consistent season with another great effort Saturday. Finishing with a career high 23 completed passes and a solid 257 yards passing, Hanie has solidified himself as the marquee Ram offensive player.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

“And I’d be at the front of the lynch crew.”

— Head Coach Sonny Lubick at his post-game press conference, discussing Jesse Nading’s 96-yard fumble return for a touchdown and what the reaction would have been if the game was tied instead of the Rams being comfortably ahead. Nading’s recovery and run would have been the longest fumble return in school history.

FIVE DOWN. SEVEN TO GO

The Rams (4-1, 1-0) have a quick turnaround this week, facing the Air Force Academy Falcons (2-2, 2-0) on Thursday night. The game starts at 6 p.m. and will be broadcast on the mtn. CSU is the only team in the Mountain West to have less than two losses and both teams are undefeated in conference along with Utah (4-2, 2-0) and Brigham Young (4-2, 2-0).
