San Diego St. has used its dominant rushing game to open up a 15-7 lead over Colorado St. at the half. Sophomore RB Ronnie Hillman rushed for 75 yards on 19 attempts in the opening half. However, it was backup RB Walter Kazee that managed to find the endzone in the second quarter. Kazee rushed for 49 yards on 12 carries in the first half.
Colorado St. RB Chris Nwoke has been unstoppable for the Rams, providing numerous big plays in the first half. Nwoke has had two 60+ yard runs, including a 63-yard touchdown run in the opening quarter. Nwoke has rushed for 175 yards on only 10 carries.
Unfortunately, the Rams lost starting QB Pete Thomas to a knee injury, which means freshman QB Garrett Grayson will have to lead Colorado St. Grayson completed 1/3 in the opening half and threw an interception after replacing Thomas.
