CSU Game Day:
A pulse of the community
a SOURCE special collaboration with CSU Athletics, CSU Alumni Association and the Division of Marketing and Communications
The Colorado State University game-day experience extends beyond Canvas Stadium. The spirit and camaraderie can be felt in the classrooms, research labs and in the community. When CSU comes together on Saturdays, it embodies a pulse of the community. Each week, we’ll be sharing the stories of what it means to be a Ram in the lead up to the big game, focusing on topics that are unique to CSU.

Explosive plays can blow away the theory, and Colorado State is looking to cut down what they’ve been allowing. To this point, the Rams have surrendered plays of 10 yards or longer 45 times. If there’s good news in there, the majority of them have been 20 yards or fewer.
