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.
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.
