Wyoming Cowboys v/s Colorado St. Rams 11/23/2007 2:00:00 pm
Wyoming was left out of the postseason in 2006 even though it was bowl eligible. However, the team's total collapse this year, makes bowl eligibility here (with a sixth win), almost a mute point! Wyoming won four of its first five games but since then the team has fallen in five of six, including three in a row. After being punished by Utah (55-0) for the comments made by head coach Joe Glenn about guaranteeing a win in Salt Lake City, the Pokes followed that up with a 35-10 loss to BYU last Saturday. Wyoming has dropped SIX straight ATS and is 0-7-1 ATS in its last eight. As for the Rams, they were carrying one of the longest losing streaks in the nation at one point, but put an end to that with a 48-23 thrashing of UNLV on the road last month. More recently, CSU picked up its second victory of the season in a 42-34 decision against Georgia Southern at home last Saturday, which means the Rams still have only one win this year versus a member of Division I-A. CSU is at least playing hard down the stretch, something that can't be said about Wyoming. This may be head coach Sonny Lubick's final game at Fort Collins and I'll back the Rams for that reason. This is the 99th edition of the Border War, which is the oldest rivalry for both programs on the football field. Look for the Rams to put forth a big effort. Take CSU.
