After losing Rashard Higgins and Joe Hansley, there is room on the outside for a new star to rise as the face of CSU football. All we have heard this spring is that the coaching staff is looking for inter-team competition and for guys that have the desire and work ethic to leave everything they have on the field.…...

Spring is in the air. And so is…football! Colorado State Rams football kicked off their annual session of spring practices on Friday afternoon inside the Indoor Practice Facility on campus. Of course, as with most seasons, the intrigue lies within the position battles. And, specifically this season, it’s at quarterback first, and the others second. There’s Nick Stevens, the…...

That journey to reign victorious over the conference begins today with the first official spring practice of 2016. As the Colorado State Rams prepare for the 2016…...

Springtime in Colorado, you have to love it. Tuesday brought 70 degree temperatures, sun and Colorado State football head coach Mike Bobo’s annual spring football press conference. Wednesday brought nearly a foot of snow, cold and the second day of spring meetings for Bobo’s Rams, who have practice starting Friday. But, let’s rewind to Tuesday, a wondrous spring day…...

Rashard Higgins is a once-in-a-generation type talent and Colorado State Rams fans have been lucky to witness him play for their school the last three years. Higgins isn’t perfect — going through ups and downs in his career — but he is an other-worldly wideout. In 2014, he was named a consensus All-American, only the third Rams player to…...

The Colorado State Rams aren’t the best in the Mountain West, but they do have some of the conference’s top players. According to a release by the conference on Tuesday afternoon, Rashard Higgins was named first-team MW. The junior standout receiver finished the season with 66 receptions for 933 yards and eight touchdowns in 11 games. Higgins sat due…...

The Colorado State Rams love playing at University Stadium in Albuquerque, New Mexico. For CSU, their last two bowl wins in 2008 and 2013 were in those now-friendly confines, and the Rams earned another big victory Saturday night, becoming bowl eligible for the third straight year. Saturday’s back-and-forth battle was almost entirely about offense, save a few key defensive…...

Colorado State is bowl eligible for a third straight season. And, luckily for the Rams, they’ve found a solid backup running back in freshman Izzy Matthews. Matthews came on when Jasen Oden left the game injured in the second quarter. And while Dalyn Dawkins was still the featured running back, Matthews came through when it was most needed. Following…...

All year, Colorado State’s offense has left something to be desired. But, as of late, the offense has been clicking. They played well last week in the win over the UNLV Rebels, and they were hot to start Saturday in New Mexico against the Lobos. After Trent Matthews interception followed by Deionte Gaines touchdown, the Rams led 7-0. UNM…...

When Senior Day kicked off, Colorado State looked like they were going to walk with an easy win Saturday at Sonny Lubick Field at Hughes Stadium; it was anything but. The UNLV Rebels took every punch the Rams handed out and even hit CSU back in the mouth. After Colorado State jumped to a 7-0 lead, the Rebels stormed…...

After a dismal and gut-wrenching loss for Colorado State (3-5, 1-3 MW) with a final score against San Diego State (6-3, 5-0 MW) 17-41, the Rams need to bounce back quickly against another Mountain West opponent and rival in the Wyoming Cowboys (1-8, 1-4 MW). This game means a great deal to CSU as a football team and to the state…...

Two’s company, three’s a crowd. On a cool, crisp Halloween Saturday in Fort Collins, Colorado State Football (3-5, 1-3 MW) continued its two-headed offense, but with a twist. CSU had both redshirt sophomore Nick Stevens (who went 17-23 for 205 yards and two touchdowns, but threw three interceptions) and redshirt freshman Coleman Key (who went 0-2 on his passing…...

Trick or treat? Colorado State Rams fans were tricked on Halloween thinking they would beat the San Diego State Aztecs. SDSU took the 7-0 lead early, and CSU actually took the lead at 10-7 in the second quarter. But four Rams turnovers led to 10 points for the Aztecs – including a pick-six – and SDSU eventually won 41-17…...

Rewind five years; the Colorado State Rams football team was down in the dumps. After it’s third straight 3-9 season, Steve Fairchild was fired and Jim McElwain was hired. In a matter of four seasons, the Rams went from 4-8 in McElwain’s first year to 10-3 last season, including back-to-back bowl appearances. And just as CSU improved over that…...

This Saturday presents a David versus Goliath situation. The Aztecs sit atop the Mountain West’s West Division by being…...

Bye for the moment but not forever. The bye week brings a Saturday away from football, a couple of short practices for Colorado State, individual drills and early preparation for the next opponent in the San Diego State Aztecs. On Wednesday, as the rain fell along with the leaves on a cool fall day in Fort Collins, the Rams…...

Saturday was a win-win for Colorado State football. They won the game and Nick Stevens soared over Air Force.
