In this edition of the CSU RamsCast, Rich Kurtzman dives in deep to explore this huge game for Colorado State Rams football as they travel to Minnesota in the first true road test of the season.

Minnesota’s offense is examined first, with a huge offensive line and playmakers in Rodney Smith as well as quarterback Mitch Liedner. What will the Golden Gophers try to do and how can CSU’s defense stop them?

Conversely, how will Collin Hill look to attack the Gophers’ defense — who has inexperienced defensive backs — and how can the Rams run the ball against Minnesota.

Surprisingly, these two teams are incredibly similar in philosophies, coaching staffs and talent in terms of experience, which leads one to believe the game will be close. Get all the details here in this podcast.
