Colorado State No Match For BYU, Rams Fall Flat Lose 49-10

big first half by the BYU Cougars was too much for the Colorado State Rams to overcome, as were turnovers and yet another game where Colorado State had a supbar game at running the ball. BYU raced out to a quick 21-0 lead as the second quarter started. The battle between the two freshman quarterbacks was easily won by BYU's Jake Heaps who was 15-20, 242 yards and four touchdowns while Pete Thomas had 292 yards and two interceptions. Heaps damage was all done in the first half with all of his touchdowns were during the first two quarters, and all of them were to wide receiver Luke Ashworth. Ashworth had only four catches in the game and they all went for touchdowns.

Colorado State had no answers in stopping the BYU passing game, nor could Colorado State hold onto the ball. In the first half Colorado State turned the ball over three times with one being returned by BYU linebacker Kyle Van Noy 44 yards for a touchdown.

The Rams avoided a shutout when kicker David Foote kicked a 34 yard field goal midway through the fourth quarter, and then the Rams scored again when Pete Thomas completed a 22 yard pass to running back Raymond Carter for the only touchdown for the Rams. The lack of a consistent running game, turnovers and poor secondary play did in the Rams today.
