Utah State Vs. Colorado State Final Score: Rams Fall To Aggies, 31-19

Colorado State couldn't keep up with the offensive attack of Utah State, losing to the Aggies 31-19 on Saturday night.

The Rams move to 1-3 on the season, having lost both home contests on the year after a tough loss to Utah State. The Aggies jumped out to a 17-0 lead in the first half, thanks to a pair of lengthy touchdown drives and the defense's complete shutdown of the Colorado State offense.

Colorado State would finally get on the board with a pair of field goals in the third quarter, pulling to within 17-6, before a 58-yard rushing touchdown by Kerwynn Williams extended the Utah State lead once more. The Rams and Aggies would trade touchdowns in the fourth quarter, but it was too late, as the Rams would ultimately lose 31-19.

Rams quarterback Garrett Grayson was 22-of-40 for 224 yards and two touchdowns, although most of the troubles for the Colorado State offense came on the ground. As a team, the Rams averaged just 3.1 yards per carry on 34 rushes in the game.

Utah State turned the ball over three times in the game, including two interceptions by quarterback Chuckie Keeton, yet Colorado State was unable to take advantage.

The Rams take on Air Force on Saturday, Sept. 29, with kickoff set for 12 p.m. MT.
