  10/17/21 - Cayden CamperJr/2023, Colorado State, 6-3, 215 (DS#8 K) + More +

  David Bailey scored on two short runs, Cayden Camper kicked five field goals and the Colorado State defense allowed just 76 yards of offense in a 36-7 victory over New Mexico on Saturday night. The Rams (3-3, 2-0 Mountain West) allowed just 16 yards passing and 60 rushing to go with five sacks and two interceptions. The 76 yards allowed marks the second-lowest total in team history. Camper, who has made 16 of his past 17 field goal tries, also had five field goals against Toledo and kicked six against San Jose State in previous CSU victories.

CSU's Todd Centeio was 16-of-25 passing for 289 yards with a 43-yard TD to Gary Williams. Trey McBride caught seven passes for 135 yards. New Mexico's touchdown came on a 63-yard punt return by Luke Wysong. Defensive backs Jerrick Reed II and Ronald Wilson were a bright spot on defense for the Lobos (2-5, 0-3). Reed had 13 tackles, eight solo and Wilson added 12 tackles with six solo. Lobos freshman quarterback CJ Montes was 3-of-19 passing for 11 yards with two interceptions. Aaron Dumas had 68 yards rushing, just eight yards less than his team's total offense. - Colorado State/AP College Football

  Field goals are coming in bunches for Colorado State's Cayden Camper. He kicked a school-record six in a 32-14 win over San Jose State, the most in an Bowl Subdivision game since Memphis' Riley Patterson kicked six against Penn State in the 2019 Cotton Bowl. Camper had shared the national season high after he kicked five field goals in a 22-6 win at Toledo on Sept. 18. He has made 11 straight after missing three of his first four attempts this season. Camper walked on as a freshman and made 7 of 13 field goals while splitting duty with Robert Liss. Liss handled the kicking in 2020 and entered the transfer portal in August, leaving Camper to handle all the extra-point and field-goal kicking this season. - AP College Football

  Cayden Camper kicked six field goals - three in each half - and Colorado State opened Mountain West Conference play with a 32-14 victory over San Jose State on Saturday. Colorado State (2-3, 1-0) grabbed the lead on their opening drive when Jaylen Thomas scored on a 1-yard run to cap an eight-play, 75-yard drive. Camper made it 10-0 with 28 seconds left in the first quarter on a 28-yard field goal. Camper sandwiched short field goals around a Spartans' TD - Nick Nash connected with Derrick Deese Jr. for the 18-yard score - and the Rams led 16-7 at halftime.

Todd Centeio hooked up with Ty McCullouch for a 60-yard scoring strike on the Rams' first possession of the third quarter to push their lead to 23-7. Camper kicked a 53-yard field goal to make it 26-7 and connected from 38 and 24 yards out in the final quarter to cap the scoring. Centeio completed 19 of 23 passes for 232 yards for Colorado State. A'Jon Vivens rushed for 114 yards on 31 carries. Nash was 11-of-22 passing for 154 yards and two TDs with one interception for San Jose State (3-3, 1-1). The Spartans managed just 267 yards of offense, while yielding 449. - Colorado State/AP College Football

  Thomas Pannunzio returned a punt 70 yards for the game's only touchdown and Cayden Camper kicked five field goals as Colorado State surprised Toledo 22-6 on Saturday. Pannunzio fielded the punt at his 30-yard line, started to his left, then broke to his right. After slipping through several arm tackles, he went the final 40 yards untouched to give the Rams a 13-6 third-quarter lead. Camper completed the scoring with three field goals in the fourth quarter.

Colorado State gained 209 yards rushing, with David Bailey accounting for 132 yards on 30 carries. Trey McBride caught nine passes for 109 yards, just one yard less than the Rams' total as starting quarterback Todd Centeio was a mere 11 of 27 for 110 yards. Toledo, which nearly upset Notre Dame a week prior, managed 291 yards on offense. Carter Bradley passed for 254 yards but the Rockets were held to 21 yards rushing. Toledo had only 11 first downs and converted only 4 of 18 on third down. - AP College Football

  08/27/21 - Evan OlaesFr/2025, Colorado State, 6-0, 200 (DS#999 QB) + More +

  The backup quarterback is either one of the least-used players on the team or one of the most important in an instant. You never worry about them until you need them. If the Colorado State football team needs its backup QB this season, the ball will likely be handed to a true freshman who hasn't played a down of competitive football since his junior year of high school. CSU coach Steve Addazio said Wednesday that freshman Evan Olaes is the No. 2 right now following the season-ending injury to Matt Valecce last week. "He's a different style guy, he's a real mobile guy, he's kind of an electric guy," Addazio said. Addazio said there's not "huge separation or anything" between Olaes and redshirt sophomore Jonah O'Brien. But if starter Todd Centeio were unavailable for any reason right now, it would be time for Olaes. "He's got a little 'it' factor to him," Addazio said of the 6-foot, 200-pound Olaes. "He's just one of those guys that moves the offense. He's bright-eyed, energetic. There's something about him. My sense is he'll be a really good football player." - Fort Collins Coloradoan

  The quarterback room at Colorado State took a big hit in depth this week. Boston College transfer Matt Valecce is out for the season after suffering a "lower body injury," coach Steve Addazio said after Saturday's scrimmage at Canvas Stadium. Valecce was injured in practice this week. He was brought in as someone with three seasons of college experience to push Todd Centeio for the starting job and provide a dose of experience in a backup role in a young QB room. Valecce, a 6-foot-5, 225 pound redshirt junior, played sparingly in six games in one season during his three years at Boston College and completed just 3 of 7 passes for 18 yards. "We've got to worry about our backup quarterback situation right now," Addazio said. "The young guys, they're looking good, but they're young guys. We've got to find a way to get them ready." - Fort Collins Coloradoan

  If Heisman Trophies were won on promises, you can forget J.T. Daniels, Bryce Young and Spencer Rattler. That puppy is Todd Centeio's bust to lose, America. "I don't believe that I'm an impaired passer," Centeio, CSU's graduate quarterback, said Tuesday at the Rams' football media day. "I feel like I actually throw the ball better than I run the ball. And I truly believe that running the ball, I'm good at that as well." With that, he paused and grinned. Knowingly. "I can't wait to just show you guys this year," Centeio continued. "That's all I can say." We want to believe. Honest, we do. Coach Steve Addazio, who handed No. 7 the keys about this time a year ago, keeps doubling down on Team Todd's ceiling. The 'It' factor, Daz calls it. "Other players, they know when a guy either has that or they don't have that," Addazio said, "and Toddy has that." - Denver Post

  08/09/21 - Trey McBrideSr/2022, Colorado State, 6-3, 260 (DS#5 TE) + More +

  Colorado State football coach Steve Addazio did not hesitate to answer a bold question. Is senior Trey McBride the best college tight end in the country? "Yes," Addazio said. "I don't say that flippantly. Because he can do it all." CSU opened its fall camp Thursday with heightened expectations for Addazio's first real season after COVID-19 cancellations left the Rams with only four games last year. Few players on the roster command so much attention as McBride - the versatile 6-foot-4, 260-pound tight end who returns to Fort Collins for a fourth season. "When you talk about a complete tight end for the next level, that can get open and catch the ball, that can block people, is physically tough and (football) is their world...that's the best tight end in the country right there," Addazio said.

McBride - a Fort Morgan native with a brother, Toby, on the roster - embraces Addazio's sky-high expectations. "There are a lot of great tight ends out there. I've still got a lot of things to prove," McBride said. "But I think I can definitely be one of the top tight ends in the country this year. That's kind of my goal. There are a lot of things that have to fall into place. I'm excited to play this season and see how it goes." McBride established himself among the nation's elite in a breakout sophomore year with 45 catches for 560 yards and four touchdowns. His high production rate continued a season ago with 15 yards per reception. - Denver Post

  With just four games to work with in 2020, it's hard to say how dominant the Rams' defensive line could be in a full season. CSU's defensive front was really good in those four games, leading the nation in average number of tackles for lost yardage per game (10.5) and finishing fourth in sacks (4.0 a game) and 12th in rushing defense (108.5 a game). And they did that despite constant questions among players about whether a particular game was going to be played and who would or would not be available because of COVID-19 test results and quarantines. "I think it'll be a much better season this year just because of that alone, being able to actually practice every day and not having to worry about that so much," senior defensive end Scott Patchan said Thursday.

With Patchan and the other three starters - Manny Jones, Toby McBride and Devin Phillips - returning this season, along with top reserve Ellison Hubbard and the addition of Boston College transfer Mike Ciaffoni, the Rams enter fall camp with a defensive line that position coach Antoine Smith believes will be among the best in the nation. That might be a bit optimistic, but CSU's defensive front should be among the best in the Mountain West. - Fort Collins Coloradoan

  Colorado State defensive end Scott Patchan and punter Ryan Stonehouse were named to the preseason All-Mountain West football team, the conference announced Thursday at its annual media days at the Cosmopolitan. Both players were first-team selections to the all-conference team following the 2020 season, as were each of the other 22 selections on offense and defense as well as two of the four specialists. Patchan was one of the top pass-rushers in the country during the Rams' COVID-19-abbreviated season with 5.5 sacks in four games - an average of 1.38 per game. It was his first year at CSU after joining the program as a graduate transfer from Miami. - Fort Collins Coloradoan

  07/23/21 - Trey McBrideSr/2022, Colorado State, 6-3, 260 (DS#5 TE) + More +

  Colorado State's football team was picked to finish fourth in the Mountain West's Mountain Division in a preseason media poll announced Wednesday at the start of the league's media days at the Cosmopolitan. The Rams, who went 1-3 in an abbreviated 2020 season after losing three games to COVID-19 issues and another because of a player boycott by the opposing team, were picked to finish behind perennial power Boise State, Wyoming and Air Force and ahead of Utah State and New Mexico in the six-team Mountain Division.

CSU was also picked to finish fourth in the Mountain Division in most preseason publications, including Athlon, Lindy's and Phil Steele. Steve Addazio, the only head coach not in attendance at the annual media days event, is beginning his second season with the Rams. He was scheduled to address reporters remotely later Wednesday and was not immediately available for comment. Boise State is the overwhelming favorite to repeat as Mountain Division champion, receiving 23 of a possible 25 first-place votes from media who cover the league. Wyoming received the other two first-place votes. - Fort Collins Coloradoan

  David Bailey, Boston College's leading rusher last fall, is transferring to Colorado State to rejoin his former head coach, Steve Addazio. Bailey, a graduate transfer, was on the CSU campus Wednesday preparing to participate in the first scheduled summer workout with his new teammates, athletic department spokesman Kyle Neaves said. The transfer was first reported by 247Sports.

The 6-foot-1, 236-pound running back, ran for 503 yards and seven touchdowns in 10 games last fall as a junior at Boston College. He was the Eagles' second-leading rusher in 2019, running for 181 yards in one game against North Carolina State and finishing with 844 yards and seven touchdowns while earning honorable mention in All-Atlantic Coast Conference voting. Bailey has two years of eligibility remaining, beginning this fall. - Fort Collins Coloradoan
