Colorado State will be facing a tough test this week against North Dakota State, the Football Championship Subdivision champions last season who featured a pair of successful running backs and a dominant defense. Perhaps the biggest test, however, is going to be figuring out how to handle quarterback Brock Jensen.
CSU coach Jim McElwain knows that Jensen is the key to their offense, according to Coloradoan.com:
"I'm really impressed with their quarterback and how he handles taking what the defense gives you," said CSU coach Jim McElwain, whose Rams face the Bison 5 p.m. Saturday at Hughes Stadium.
Jensen brought balance to the North Dakota State offense, passing for 2,524 yards and 14 touchdowns last season and perfectly complimenting the team's dangerous running attack. NDSU defeated Robert Morris in the first game of the season, 52-0, showcasing yet again the balance that won the FCS championship in 2011.
