The Colorado St. Rams are in a battle against rival Colorado Buffaloes as they trail 17-16 early in the fourth quarter, but for most of the second half the Rams have been without starting running back Chris Nwoke. The last time Nwoke was in the game was on the Rams' touchdown drive at the beginning of the third quarter.
The physical running back rushed for 47 yards on 11 carries. There is no official word on why Nwoke is out, but what is being said is that he has suffered a lower extremity injury. In Nwoke's place is Donnell Alexander who has been productive in Nwoke's absence and has 30 yards on seven carries.
