After their devastating 48-10 loss to Florida on Saturday, the Colorado State Rams desperately need a bounce-back performance against Illinois State this weekend.

Of course, it’s Ag Day and that brings the big-time Bar-B-Que, the orange out and the pumpkin and alfalfa jerseys. They’re the best jersey combination the Rams have, and they’re really good luck, as CSU has gone 8-0 all-time on Ag Day in those jerseys.

That’s what makes this game a must-win. Or, at least, partly.

It’s also a key game to earn a victory because Colorado State needs to go into the bye on a high note, and moving back up to 2-3 would bring them closer to .500 on the season just in time for that bye.

We go first and 10 on the Rams loss to Florida, which sheds light onto where the green and gold can improve going forward. And, we preview the CSU – Illinois State game, which kicks off this Saturday at 1 p.m. MST.
