Colorado State Vs. Wyoming: Rams Get Shut Out Of Border War, 44-0

So much for Colorado State backing up their smack talk about taking back the Bronze Boot. Colorado State was shut out 44-0 against rival Wyoming and finish the season 3-9. The win for Wyoming gives them their first conference win of the season and they too end the season with a record of 3-9.

Colorado State was never able to get anything going on offense as Wyoming was pressuring ram quarterback Pete Thomas all afternoon. The Wyoming defense forced two turnovers and had six sacks. 

The Ram defense had missed tackles all day which allowed Wyoming to gain the extra yards, and they were unable to stop the running game. The player of the game was Wyoming running back Alvester Alexander who set a Wyoming school record with five rushing touchdowns and racked up 147 yards with a 6.4 yards per play. Wyoming quarterback Austyn Carta-Samuels had one of his best games of the year with 263 yards on 23-32 passing and had 46 yards rushing most of which was gained on a pass back early in the game for a big gain.

Colorado State again suffered to find a rushing attack, but that is to be expected when the Rams were down 23 points at the half. The leading rusher was Chris Nwoke who had 63 yards on 11 carries. Quarterback Pete Thomas who has shown what a good quarterback the past few games was unable to get anything done today. He ended up with with 97 yards passing on 16-for-33 attempts.
