It was cold and the seats nearly empty in Fort Collins as the visiting UNLV Rebels were shut out for 3 quarters. I had a good time trying to make some cold weather photos despite my frozen fingers and toes. I think I need to break out the thicker gloves for photography since the camera gets cold and your hands are barely moving at all. The player of the game may have been Donnell Alexander with 2 touchdowns on 21 carries and 139 yards, though the CSU defense helped the cause too with two interceptions returned for touchdowns.
The visiting Stanford fans were unlucky last Saturday, in that the bulk of the Stanford scoring happened on the opposite end of the field from where they are relegated. Unsurprisingly, the Buffaloes took a beating at the hands of the 15th-ranked Cardinal, with a final score of 48-0 (beating the spread of 28 points handily). Last game in Boulder of the year for me, and I enjoyed seeing a few NFL-caliber players perform in this otherwise uninteresting matchup.
