Bulldogs getting ready for Colorado St game

FRESNO, Calif.

The game in Fort Collins, Colorado should be somewhere in the low 40's at game time Saturday.

The 'Dogs are in search of their first road win this year and they'll look to duplicate Air Forces offensive productivity.

The Falcons gained 516 yards -- 459 on the ground.

Robbie Rouse might see more touches and yards this week.

Fresno State is fresh off an exciting 52-40 win over San Diego State.

And with Boise State in two weeks we asked coach about a possible let down from the Aztec battle or possibly looking ahead to the Broncos.

I don't buy any of that crap. You know this is a league game. We plan on each week, especially within the league is its own Super Bowl and we know we've got to win on the road so there's no such thing as a trap game." said DeRuyter.

We've just got to continue to do what we've been doing offensively. We've got explosive receivers on the outside. Derek's throwing and the line is blocking good. They're giving me running lanes, so we just have to continue our offense to see what happens." added Rouse.

The 'Dogs will be looking for their first road victory against the Rams of Colorado State.

The Rams have struggled out the gates at 1-4 -- leaving their head coach frustrated after their latest loss to air force on Saturday.

"This is probably as low as I've been okay? And uhhh, but I do know that we have some guys in that locker room that have heart. And we're going to get it out of the guys this week and find out who's committed to being a champion and who isn't. It's that simple." said CSU head coach Jim McElwain.

Many Red Wave fans will remember the Colorado State head coach.

Jim McElwain was the Offensive Coordinator for the Bulldogs in 2007 and then became the play caller at Alabama where he won a national championship under Nick Saban.

He was considered as a top candidate for the Fresno State job but ultimately decided on Colorado State where he's making a reported $1.5 million a year.
