What to Know
The Colorado State Rams will play against a Division II opponent, the S. Dakota St. Jackrabbits, in an early-season tune-up Friday at 9 p.m. ET at Canvas Stadium. Returning after a rocky 1-3 season, the Rams are aiming to prove that the past does not define them.
The neutral point spread forecasts a close one for these two. We’ll see if the game is as close as the oddsmakers expect or if one of these teams has a surprise blowout in them.
Rabbits are no patsy. South Dakota State was the 2020-21 FCS public next in line and is positioned No. 3 in the preseason FCS rankings. The Jackrabbits completed 8-2 last year (5-1 Missouri Valley), losing to Sam Houston State (23-21) on a late score in the title game on May 27. Pretty much everybody of note from that crew is back, with 10 starters returning on each side of the ball, in addition to two trained professionals. One glaring special case: QB Mark Gronowski, who experienced a physical issue in the primary quarter of the public title game, will miss all of 2021.
McBride’s initial demonstration. Rams senior Trey McBride, a 2020 All-American from Fort Morgan, is Todd McShay’s No. 1-positioned tight end on his NFL Draft Big Board and the No. 27 by and large possibility. McBride has nine profession score gatherings, one behind Joel Dreesen for second spot in program history. McBride is among 33 Rams who are seniors or past, including his more seasoned sibling, Toby, a “super” senior guarded lineman.
Rams versus FCS. CSU is confronting a FCS rival for the tenth time in the beyond 11 years. The Rams, who are 2-0 untouched against SDSU (last gathering 1966), are 7-2 in those games, however that incorporates a humiliating home misfortune to Illinois State (35-19) only three years prior. While the Jackrabbits are a strong FCS program, they are only 1-9 against FBS groups. The Jackrabbits’ just success came in the 2015 season opener at Kansas, 41-38.
