Next, Ram Fans will also be very excited to see the return of both Rhett Nelson and Landon Jones into the defensive secondary. With the high-flying air attack of Adam Hall, J.R. Tolver, and Kasim Osgood, the Rams' secondary will be tested early and often and you want your go-to guys in there.
Expect to see Cecil Sapp carry the majority of the load on Saturday, as well. The Rams not only want to control the game clock in this match-up, they would also like to see Sapp shatter Steve Bartalo's single-season school rushing record. A big game against the Aztecs should all but assure the fact that Sapp would then break Bartalo's record next Saturday against New Mexico at Hughes Stadium.
For those of you who are concerned that the Rams may come out a bit rusty after a bye-week, here is a stat to chew on. Since Sonny Lubick's arrival in 1993, the Rams are 8-2 when coming off of a bye-week. However, the last loss after a bye-week came last year in the form of a 14-7 loss at the hands of none other than the San Diego State Aztecs.
I see Cecil going for at least 150 yards against the Aztecs, with CSU punishing San Diego State 34-13.

Ram basketball fans have to love the way that the future is looking for Dale Layer's squad. After Layer and Assistant coach Buzz Williams landed the "Big 3" out of the state of Texas earlier this week, the Rams will have one of the strongest front courts in the Mountain West Conference beginning next year. That is all thanks, primarily, to the hard work of Williams, who basically owns the state of Texas at this point. Don't be surprised if Buzz Williams is also the Head Coach of this Ram team in the near future.
That's all for now and Go Rams!!!
