Although it trails 13-3 at the half against No. 19 TCU, the Colorado St. Rams have acquitted themselves well in front of a national audience. The Rams offense accounted for 179 yards in the opening half, and freshman QB Garrett Grayson led two drives deep into TCU territory. While one drive resulted in a field goal at the end of the half, the other drive came to a halt when the Rams were unable to convert on fourth down.
The Rams defense has been equally impressive, limiting the explosive TCU offense to only 148 yards in the half. They have been particularly strong in slowing down TCU QB Casey Pachall, who has completed only 4/10 for 30 yards. However, CSU has had trouble dealing with the speed of the Horned Frogs RB's, as Matthew Tucker has rushed for 53 yards, while Waymon James added 41.
