The Colorado State Rams play host to the Northern Colorado Bears on Monday night, as the Rams look to improve to 5-0 on the young season.

Colorado State has opened the season with wins over Montana, Chadron State, Denver and Washington.

Much of the Rams' early success this season has been because of their ability to rebound. Colorado State currently ranks No. 7 in the country in rebounds, averaging 45 rebounds per game. Pierce Hornug leads the Rams in rebounds, averaging 12 per game.

Colorado State's leading scorer, Colton Iverson, who averages 16.3 points per game, also averages 10.5 rebounds per game.

Through three games, Northern Colorado ranks No. 107 in the country in rebounds per game, averaging just 37.7 rebounds per game. Colorado State is in prime position on Monday night to once again dominate the glass.

Northern Colorado enters Monday with a 1-2 record, and is riding a two-game losing streak.

Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. MT from Moby Arena.
