PLAY OF THE DAY

With just two minutes left in second quarter, SDSU quarterback Kevin O’Connell completed a 12-yard pass to receiver Brett Swain. Swain was then stripped by safety Mike Pagnotta, who led the defense all day. Klint Kubiak recovered the fumble for one of the few positive plays for the Rams.

COLLEGIAN GAME BALL GOES TO.

Running back Michael Myers – Everybody’s favorite horror movie character had a pretty good game in his first real action for the Rams. With his 68-yard performance, Myers has positioned himself to battle Gartrell Johnson III for the role of Kyle Bell’s backup for next season.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

“The thing I’ll remember most about (the senior class) is somehow everybody managed to leave or get kicked off.” – Senior Luke Adkins reminiscing what he will remember most about his senior class. Adkins, a former walk-on, was second on the team in tackles this season with 87.

12 DOWN. ZERO TO GO

CSU’s worst season in Sonny Lubick’s tenure is mercifully over. Finishing the season with seven straight losses would have not seemed likely after Oct.7 when CSU beat UNLV and ran their record to 4-1. Next season the schedule is no easier with games against Pac-Ten powerhouse California, Conference-USA champ Houston and road games at both BYU and TCU.
