The Colorado State Rams have not won a football game since Sept. 24 but still could reach 6-6 and bowl eligibility if they win their remaining three games. That task begins at TCU on Saturday, where the Rams will be heavy underdogs against a Horned Frogs team coming off a huge win at Boise State.
The Rams have been close to a breakthrough in each of the last two weeks, losing to UNLV and San Diego State by a total of six points. But they have any hope of being that competitive against the Mountain West's first place team, they're going to need a fantastic effort on both sides of the ball.
CSU's ground game, led by running back Chris Nwoke, has been very good over the last two games--Nwoke piled up156 yards on 23 carries on Oct. 29 and 232 yards on 22 carries on Nov. 12. Another stellar performance will be key to helping the Rams offense sustain drives against the Frogs.
Game date, time: 1:30 p.m. MT, Saturday, Nov. 19
Location: Amon G. Carter Stadium, Fort Worth, TX
TV channel: Versus
Spread: TCU favored by 34 points
Series history: TCU leads, 7-1
