OXFORD, Ohio – Heading into Saturday, it had been 364 days since the Colorado State football team last came away with a victory.

Thanks to Miami (Ohio), it will be at least another seven days before CSU gets a chance to earn its first win since Sept. 19, 2009 as the RedHawks steamrolled the Rams 31-10 in front 16,691 fans at Yager Stadium.

Like its prior two games in 2010, CSU (0-3) failed to establish a run game, acquiring one net yard on the ground. Both junior Raymond Carter and senior John Mosure finished the game with seven yards apiece.

“I thought we struggled offensively, obviously,” said CSU coach Steve Fairchild during his postgame press conference. “We did not play very well up front. We have to protect (the quarterback) like we’re capable of and we have to get a much better game from our front guys to get any consistency offensively.”

Though the Rams struggled on the ground for the third time in as many games, freshman quarterback Pete Thomas continued to improve, throwing for 305 yards, including a six-yard pass to junior wide receiver Matt Yemm with 1:14 left in the game for CSU’s first touchdown of the season.
