Colorado State put itself in position to do the same Saturday against Texas Christian. The nation's top-ranked defense refused to go along, however, protecting a 13-7 lead from the middle of the second quarter to the final buzzer.

It was mainly because of stubbornness that Colorado State was determined to try to run on TCU's No. 1-ranked rush defense, Rams coach Steve Fairchild said.

With the offense stalled and missing chances Saturday afternoon, Fairchild pulled starter Billy Farris for the second time in favor of backup Klay Kubiak. Not that it changed much, as the Rams failed to score on any of Kubiak's six drives in a 13-7 Mountain West Conference loss to TCU at Lubick Field at Hughes Stadium.

The Frogs, whose 22 sacks led the nation entering the game, didn't get to Farris at all in the first half, but did the opening drive of the third quarter.
