Colorado State at Wyoming: College Football


FRee;ESPN3 Colorado State vs Wyoming Live Stream NCAA College Football Week 10 Kick off time, Scores, Playoffs, Picks & Radio Video Coverage. Colorado State travels to Wyoming on Saturday, hoping to boost its 3-5 mark in Week 10 action with a victory over the Cowboys. The 1-8 Wyoming game versus 3-4 Colorado State seems tilted, but traditionally could go either way.

With the exception of one season as an assistant at Jacksonville State in Alabama, Mike Bobo spent his entire playing and coaching career at Georgia until coming to Colorado State.

Last week against Utah State, the Cowboys failed to stop the USU offense– at all. The Pokes gave up 14 of 17 passes for 246 yards and 3 touchdowns to a Utah State QB known more for his legs than his arm.

The Cowboys are 1-8, and while Colorado State University hasn’t fared much better at 3-5, at least the Rams can say they don’t have losses to North Dakota, Eastern Michigan and Appalachian State. Don’t take that as an insult to second-year coach Craig Bohl. He deserves five years to fix Dave Christensen’s Dumpster fire; it’s just going to take some time.

As Saturday’s Border War against Wyoming at Laramie approached, Bobo said he was trying to learn about the deep-rooted rivalry, which in CSU annals goes back to 1900.

Offensively, the game matches up the Wyoming Cowboys No. 114-ranked offense (20.33 PPG) against a Colorado State Rams defense that ranks No. 82 at 29 PPG. The Wyoming Cowboys passing attack has averaged 194.33 yards per game, less than the Colorado State Rams give up through the air (194.5 YPG on average).

Defensively, the Colorado State Rams feature the league’s No. 123-rated road run defense, allowing 288.5 yards per game. Wyoming, meanwhile, ranks No. 54 in rushing offense at home.

One of the dividends of team experience is team consistency. CSU Is one of five teams in the FBS that are ranked in the top 25 on third-down offense, converting at 45.6 percent clip, and third-down defensive efficiency (31.8, 21st).

CSU showed over the previous two seasons — back-to-back bowl berths — that it finally learned how to protect the football, finishing 2014 and 2013 with a turnover margin of 2. This year, the Rams are at minus-14 with 22 giveaways.
