Old school coaches would love how Colorado State defeated Colorado Friday night in Denver 31-17.
Run, Run and Run some more.
Not necessarily three yards and a cloud of dust but effective.
Colorado State running back Dee Hart (139 yards rushing) and Treyous Jarrells (121 rushing yards) gave the Rams two 100 yard rushers in a game for the first time since 2002.
"I felt really good about our running back situation, and they didn't disappoint." Colorado State head coach Jim McElwain said.
"It will be fun to have those guys back there." Colorado State quarterback Garrett Grayson said. "It is a huge security blanket for me to know that we can run the ball like that."
"It's a huge win." McElwain said. "I can't tell you how happy I am for the people of Colorado State University. Those kids in that locker room, that prepared to go win a football game like a good team should. There wasn't any talking or any of that stuff. They just went out and played good football. The way Colorado State Rams should."
Raise the Rocky Mountain Showdown trophy coach. The Rams deserve it.
