The Rams' defense has been left on the field for entirely too long in every game but the first. Defensive standouts Shaqs Barrett (3 sacks) and Bell have been as good as anyone could hope under such circumstances. Freshman Cory James (5 sacks) and James Skelton have also stepped up for the Rams. With QB Garrett Grayson and CB Momo Thomas both out for the season, the Rams need players on both sides of the ball to step up... and quickly.
Colorado State vs. San Diego State preview: Can Rams pull off the upset?
The 1 - 5 Rams hope to prove something to the 3 - 3 Aztecs this weekend in San Diego. A loss for the Rams all but eliminates the underachieving squad coached by Jim McElwain. A win keeps them alive but the Aztecs hope to use the punchless Rams as a stepping stone to only needing two games for a potential bowl bid in their last year in the Mountain West conference.
