CHALLENGES

This is a tough Colorado State squad. The Rams are rated 51st in the Massey Composite but probably should be ranked better. CSU destroyed Pac-12 opponent Oregon State earlier in the season and is the one team that has been able to score more than 20 points on No. 1 Alabama. The Rams have a balanced offense that can bite you both on the ground and through the air, pick your poison. Playing the Rams in their sparkling new stadium will also be a challenge. The Rams have yet to lose a game there. The Falcons will need for their running attack to produce long, sustained drives to eat up clock and keep the ball away from the Rams. If Air Force is forced into mostly throwing it could be a very long day. The Falcons can win this but it’ll be tough on the road.
