Fresno State vs. Colorado State 2012: TV schedule, game time, spread and more

Cary Edmondson-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Rams look to right the ship against a high-powered Fresno State offense.

The struggling Colorado State Rams will welcome the Fresno State Bulldogs to Fort Collins this Saturday as the two teams square off for the first time as Mountain West Conference opponents.

The last time the two teams met, the Rams posted a 40-35 win in the 2008 New Mexico Bowl.

The Rams have lost four straight games after a week-one victory over rival Colorado. Last week, Air Force rushed out to a 21-0 lead on the way to a 42-21 victory over Colorado State, running for 459 yards in the process. The Rams defense has allowed 30 points and 427 yards per game, both ranking in the 80s nationally. Meanwhile, with talented running back Chris Nwoke battling injury, the Rams are managing just 105 rushing yards per game, which ranks 112th in the nation.

Fresno State is 3-2 after a 52-40 shootout win over San Diego State. Derek Carr leads the Bulldogs' top-15 attack, completing 69 percent of his passes for 335 yards per game, 14 touchdowns, and just three interceptions. Add in Robbie Rouse leading the run game to close to 200 rushing yards per game, and Fresno's offense is cranking out 42 points per game.

If common opponents are any indicator, the Rams defeated Colorado by five, while the Bulldogs beat the Buffs by 45.

Date/Time: Sat, Oct. 6, 5:00 p.m. MT
