Black or McLean?

Following the Giants trade-up to #1, will they take Rice QB Eric McLean or Auburn QB Marcus Black?

    This game will be a dogfight.  Both teams are fighting for bowl eligibility.  While a loss doesn't knock Colorado State out of contention for a bowl, it throws a major wrench in their goals.  If Fresno loses, then they will be eliminated from contention.

     

    Fresno is coming off of a fantastic game last week where they thumped UNLV 42-0. QB Teddy Cagle was 18/28 for 240 and 2 TDs, while RB Johnny Hough ran for 106 yards and 2 TDs.  RB Jaylen Nance added 23 yards and a TD.  WR Frank Moffet led all recievers with 102 yards and a TD on 5 catches.  DT Etene Leiataua led the defense with 8 tackles, one of which was in the backfield.

    Fresno will be looking to take the momentum from this performance and harnessing it into another win this Saturday.

     

    Colorado State is coming off of a bye week.  The week before, they played USF and lost 7-35.  QB Wesley Brady was 29/49 for 320 yards, 1 TD, and 1 INT.  WR Henry Hankins had 10 catches for 120 yards.  As a team, Colorado State only had 2 rushing yards.

    Colorado State will be looking to get back to winning ways this week.

     

    Keys to Success:

    Fresno State

    1. Keep Brady's production low
    2. Win the turnover margin
    3. Stay balanced on offense

    Colorado State

    1. Stop the run
    2. Win the turnover margin
    3. Get Brady going early and often

     

    Prediction:

    Fresno State

    The game will be close, but the home field advantage does just enough to tip the scales.  Brady will have a good game, but he will be the only thing driving the CSU offense forward.  Fresno's offense will be much more balanced, giving the CSU defense a harder time.  The fans help cause some mistakes and Fresno wins the turnover margin.

    Final: 31-24 Fresno State

    I love Colorado State's roster.  They have a lot of talent that they can put on the field.  They just have not found the right combination of settings that work for them.
