The Colorado St. Rams and the Northern Colorado Bears kick off on Saturday at 12:00 p.m. MT for the first time in 25 years. The Rams, under head coach Leon Fuller, defeated the Bears, 46-14. Fuller's Rams went on to finish the season at 6-5, his best record in seven seasons at the helm.
Northern Colorado lost a last-second decision to Division II Lindenwood to open the season. Lindenwood kicked a field goal as time expired to take the 22-20 victory. Starting quarterback Seth Lobato was injured on the last play of the first half and was replaced by Dylan Orms at the start of the second half. Head coach Earnest Collins Jr. is still looking for his first victory at the helm of the Bears. Running back Quintin Hildreth is now the No. 1 running back and he wants to take it to the Rams this Saturday.
Colorado State played the New Mexico Lobos in a game that saw plenty of offensive ineptitude. However, defensive end Nordly Capi set an NCAA record with four forced fumbles in the game, and Capi came up with the final one at the end of the game, securing the victory for the Rams. The Rams lost pass rusher Broderick Sargent for the season after he tore his ACL. Look out for quarterback Pete Thomas in this game.
The Mtn. will televise the game live at noon MT.
