Rams take on Air Force Falcons

October 6, 2010

The CSU Rams take on the Air Force Falcons in Colorado Springs! The game will be held at Falcon Stadium.

Impactful injuries

While the unfortunate 27-0 loss to the TCU Horned Frogs was hard to deal with, the Rams, (1-4) (0-1 MWC), will be without running back Raymond Carter and veteran long snapper Scott Albritton.

Both suffered knee injuries during the TCU game and both are expected to miss the Air Force game this Saturday.

The Rams will travel to the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs this Saturday to take on the No. 25 Falcons.

When asked about Carter, Coach Steve Fairchild said "Right now we’re still evaluating it, but he has a sprained knee. He’ll probably be off of that and get treatment this week, and as each day goes by we will assess where he is at. Eventually he’ll start running around and get back into practice.”

As for Albritton, his knee injury forces him out for the rest of season. He has been the Rams long snapper since 2008.

RB spot up for grabs

The long snapper job will go to Tanner Hedstrom but the running back job is open. It will be a tough position to fill as Carter leads the team in both rushing yards and total touchdowns.

Names in contention for running back include fullback Zac Pauga, John Mosure and Chris Nwoke. All three would like to make a statement against the Falcons and show the Rams offense can be a threat.

Another historic rivalry

When asked on how this game stacks up against rivalry game against CU and Wyoming, Fairchild said "I think this rivalry is right there with all of the rest of them; this is a good rivalry.

If you look back, we’ve had some tremendous games that have gone down to the wire. It’s a great setting down there, and I know our players look forward to it.”

Tailgating at Falcon Stadium beings at 9:30 a.m., with the game beginning at noon.
