CSU and Orange?
If you were out at Hughes Stadium or Moby Arena this past Saturday for either football or volleyball you would have seen a sea of Colorado State fans wearing orange. No, CSU has not changed their team colors except for once a season to represent the CSU of old. Colorado State once was the agricultural and mining school. We once were known as the Aggies not the Rams and we wore orange and alfalfa green. But as time rolled on we had changes from mascots to team colors.
But over this past weekend your Rams steamrolled the Savannah State Tigers 65-13 at Hughes for their season opener. QB Nick Stevens played phenomenally, who went 20-28 for 289 yards and 5 TD’s, with his great season starter he also was awarded the Mountain West Offensive player of the week. It was a fun game to watch, sadly most of the fans left at the half with a score of 45-7 on the board. But with that win it gave Head Coach Mike Bobo his first win as a Head Coach and as a Ram. Plus, an added bonus this win was Colorado States 500th football win. CSU Rams football’s next game is Saturday September 12th when the Rams welcome the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers from the Big 10. This will be a big test for the Rams after such a dominant performance.
Then Saturday night your Colorado State Rams Volleyball beat the Western Michigan Broncos in three sets with scores of 25-22, 25-22, and 25-15. With that win the rams are now 4-1. Your CSU Rams Volleyball will take on Northern Colorado Bears tonight at Moby Arena.
Overall it was a great weekend for Ram athletics with two wins in the books and looking for more as the season rages on toward the end of 2015.
