The CSU Rams Almost Gave The SJSU Spartans Their First Win
Colorado State took a quarter off and it almost cost them
The Rams still need to do some soul searching
Colorado State had no right to walk out of San Jose with this victory. Let me repeat myself. COLORADO STATE HAD NO RIGHT TO WALK AWAY WITH THIS VICTORY. The Rams dominated the first half, took the third quarter off, and then stepped up in the 4th quarter to secure the victory.
The Rams came out firing in the first half. K.J. Carta-Samuels threw for four touchdowns in the first half; two to Preston Williams and two to Warren Jackson. The running game finally showed up for the Rams, as CSU finished with 219 yards rushing for the game. Coming into this game, CSU was averaging 92.6 rushing yards per game.
The CSU defense stepped up but also had some help from the Spartans in the first half. The Rams matched their sack total for the year in the first half with two sacks and they held San Jose to 80 total yards in the first half. San Jose played their part by missing open receivers. Josh Love had multiple receivers wide open and he either missed them or threw it too hard at them.
The third quarter of this game was where the tide started to turn. San Jose State scored 30 unanswered points to take the lead at the beginning of the fourth quarter. Carta-Samuels threw two interceptions that led to points for the Spartans. And the defense missed assignments that let the Spartans score.
