PLAY OF THE DAY

Early on in the game, before anyone in the student section had left early, Darryl Williams cut in front of a John Beck pass in the end zone to prevent BYU from scoring for a second time in the first quarter. Williams’ interception was his third of the season, good for the team lead.

COLLEGIAN GAME BALL TO.

Cornerback Darryl Williams – In addition to his interception, Williams was also third on the team in the tackles against the Cougars. Any one of a handful of Rams defenders could have taken home the prize, but Williams’ interception sealed his fate.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

“There is always hope, there really isn’t any quit in this team. We just have to keep working, and doing what we’re doing and hopefully we can finish strong.”

-Defensive end Jesse Nading, in the locker room after the game Saturday. Nading, a junior, has lost all three of his games against Brigham Young.

NINE DOWN.THREE TO GO

The Rams (4-5, 1-4) are mired in their worst losing streak in 15 seasons and it won’t getting any easier next week. CSU travels to Utah to take on the Utes (5-4, 3-2), who are coming of their bye week and are just one victory short of bowl eligibility.
