Idaho Vandals vs Colorado State Rams Live Stream
Teams: Idaho vs Colorado State
Time: 7 p.m. ET
Date: Dec. 22, Thursday
Location: Boise, Idaho- Albertson’s Stadium
Colorado State head coach Mike Bobo is in his second season as the Rams’ head coach, and he’s already led the program to back-to-back seven-win regular seasons. The Rams were sitting at 3-4 by Week 7.
Rams began the season with Colin Hill as their quarterback, but a knee injury sidelined him for the season in early October.
Being able to extend Colorado’s bowl-eligible streak of three years isn’t exactly a cakewalk, but that’s exactly what Bobo has done this season.
Idaho came into 2016 following a 4-8 record in 2015, and the Vandals have greatly improved in just a single season. Idaho finished the year with a win over Georgia State.
The Vandals opened this year by losing three of their first five games, but with wins over UNLV, UL-Monroe, and New Mexico State, bowl eligibility was looked like a definite possibility for the first time since 2009.
Aside from the defensive struggles, head coach Paul Petrino (yes, the brother of Bobby Petrino) has to take some credit for the turnaround Idaho has shown in a season.
