FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — Colorado State’s new stadium can hold 41,000 fans and features a video board that’s nearly the size of a basketball court.
To get comfortable with the surroundings, the team held a series of walk-throughs and scrimmages, including a recent dress rehearsal in front of more than 20,000 fans.
They return a bulk of their offense in quarterback Nick Stevens, receiver Michael Gallup and a potent trio of tailbacks in Dalyn Dawkins, Izzy Matthews and Marvin Kinsey Jr.
He also served as Colorado State’s interim head coach for the 2014 Las Vegas Bowl after Jim McElwain left to take over at Florida.
HARD TO STOP: Colorado State will be keeping close tabs on tailback Ryan Nall, who led the Beavers with 951 yards rushing last season and is on the Doak Walker watch list.
