New Mexico Bowl Marshall vs. Colorado State Spread Predictions 12/16/17

Share

The Marshall Thundering Herd (7-5) looks to claim a victory at the 2017 GILDAN New Mexico Bowl after missing the 2016 bowl season while the Colorado State Rams look for their first victory in a bowl game after five straight bowl appearances.

Backfield pressure - Both teams feature talented quarterbacks that will face underwhelming pass rushes, with Colorado State averaging two sacks a game and Marshall 2.25 per game.

In the absence of a dominant performance from receiver Michael Gallup, Johnson stepped up with six catches for 119 yards.

Marshall tight end Ryan Yurachek, the son of new Razorbacks athletics director Hunter Yurachek, had seven catches for 60 yards and scored a touchdown in the Thundering Herd's 31-28 win over Colorado State.

Putin also claimed that the appointed of Rodchenkov as head of the Moscow Laboratory was a "mistake". "We are also to blame". Shortly thereafter, a pair of former colleagues from Russia's anti-doping agency unexpectedly died.

The Colorado State Rams have lost each of their last three bowl games from 2014 to 2016, including being outscored in a shootout previous year with the Idaho Vandals, 61-50.

"I got to hit Gallup in those shots".

Nick Stevens threw for 320 yards and ran for two touchdowns for the Rams, but was sacked five times.

Matt Kemp returns to Dodgers in 5-player deal with Braves
He was an All-Star in 2015 and led the NL in RBIs in 2014, but went on the disabled list with a herniated disk in his back last season for the first time in his career.

Yurachek isn't the first player to do a beer-related celebration this season. While Marshall found its stride, however, Colorado State never looked in sync, getting outgained on offense by a 501-390 margin.

Colorado State has been seemingly stuck in neutral since a 10-3 showing in 2014.

"This hurts but we'll regroup and get ready for next year", Bobo said.

Head coach Mike Bobo will not have a lot of time to feel sorry for his team since it will be a busy offseason. He recently signed a contract extension where he will earn $2 million by 2020.

Twitter Goes Nuts Over Pentagon's Secret UFO Program: 'I Want to Believe'
This is not the first time the United States government has investigated UFOs and other mysterious aerospace phenomena. A number for Bigelow Aerospace in Las Vegas was not answered Saturday, and voice mail for the number was out of order.

It was all for naught, however, because Stevens missed Gallup on a downfield throw three plays later and then the Rams turned the ball over on downs. It's been quite the opposite for the Marshall Thundering Herd, who can boast four straight bowl wins under Doc Holliday, and their last five in total, most recently a narrow 16-10 victory over CT to end the 2015 season.
