The Las Vegas Bowl has an old Mountain West feel as Colorado State takes on former league member Utah. This is a game that will feature a great offense against a great defense. Utah's defense is always known to be great and that unit is led by All-American defensive lineman Nate Orchard who was second in the nation in sacks with 17.5.
Colorado State's offense is led by Mountain West offensive player of the year in quarterback Garrett Grayson and All-American wide receiver Rashard Higgins.
The big difference could be the Colorado State defense against the Utah offense. The Utes offense has a big weapon in running back Devonte Booker who is one of the best running backs in the nation.
Colorado State fans get pumped with this hype video:
