Saturday's menu: Pancakes, eggs and football

April 16, 2014

What does the 2014 football season hold in store for CSU fans? Can the Rams improve on their 2013 season?

Quarterback Garrett Grayson returns for the Rams after setting a school record for passing yards.Those questions will be addressed Saturday when CSU hosts the annual Green and Gold Spring Game at Hughes Stadium. The game-type scrimmage begins at 11 a.m. and is free and open to the public.

Pancakes, egg hunt

The Green and Gold game is much more than football, however. Fans are invited to the annual pancake breakfast, starting at 9 a.m. on the stadium’s west concourse. And kids can enjoy an egg hunt in Ram Town on the south end of the stadium starting at 10 a.m. Both the breakfast and egg hunt are free.

On the field, the Rams will show how much progress they’ve made in 14 spring practices. CSU returns several key starters from last year’s team that finished 8-6 and beat Washington State in the New Mexico Bowl.

Returning talent

Quarterback Garrett Grayson, who set a school record with 3,696 passing yards, returns to lead the offense, while a strong corps of linebackers and defensive backs leads the defense.

Saturday’s scrimmage will be fans’ final opportunity to see the Rams in action prior to the 2014 season opener against the University of Colorado. The annual Rocky Mountain Showdown is set for Friday, Aug. 29 at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
