Colorado State Rams vs Wyoming Cowboys 11/22/2019
Colorado State Rams
There is a lot on the line for the Colorado State Rams this Friday. They need to win to keep their bowl eligibility hopes alive. For them to do so, they need to work on both ends. Offensively, they average 30.6 points per game. A prime reason for that is Patrick O’Brien who has thrown for 2,297 yards with 10 touchdowns. To enhance their chances, they need to maintain and improve their defense some more. So far, they have limited opponents to just 27.5 points in their last four assignments. This is a marked improvement from their previous games where they allowed 36.3 ppg.
Players to watch: P. O’Brien QB 138 CMP 226 ATT 1,950 YDS 61.1 CMP% 8.6 AVG 87 LNG 8 TD 3 INT; M. Kinsey Jr. RB 121 ATT 703 YDS 5.8 AVG 75 LNG; M. McElroy RB 58 ATT 271 YDS 4.7 AVG 34 LNG; W. Jackson WR 55 REC 852 YDS 15.5 AVG 87 LNG; D. Wright WR 46 REC 641 YDS 13.9 AVG 75 LNG
The Wyoming Cowboys play at home which makes them slight favorites to win. The Cowboys currently tote a 6-4 record and are looking good. One reason for that is their defense. Wyoming is giving up 18.7 points per game against opponents. However, the same cannot be said on their pass defense. It looms as a potential flaw that the Rams can exploit. As far as their offense, the Cowboys are inconsistent. They are struggling and need to get more out of players like Tyler Vander Waal. He is averaging only 5.1 yards per attempt and has also thrown three interceptions. Wyoming is expected to focus on the ground game, aware that the Colorado State defense is not exactly the best.
Players to watch: S. Chambers QB 52 CMP 121 ATT 915 YDS 43 CMP% 7.6 AVG 56 LNG 7 TD 3 INT; X. Valladay RB 155 ATT 755 YDS 4.9 AVG 61 LNG; T. Swen RB 67 ATT 337 YDS 5 AVG 59 LNG; R. Ismali Jr. WR 14 REC 240 YDS 17.1 AVG 37 LNG; A. Conway WR 12 REC 175 YDS 14.6 AVG 28 LNG
