Both Colorado State and UNLV enter Saturday afternoon's game looking to end three-game losing streaks. Injuries to a total of 10 starters have cost the Rams 38 combined starts this season, yet they have a chance to get back to .500 overall and put themselves over .500 in Mountain West Conference play with a win against the Rebels. While CSU can at least entertain the notion of bowl eligibility, the situation is more dire for UNLV, which has just one win this season. But they do have a reasonable shot at picking up win number two against the Rams.
