Anyone who thinks the early bowl games are a waste are invited to find a replay of today’s New Mexico Bowl and try to turn away.
Fresno State and Colorado State played a non-stop game that had everything you want, including a monster performance by CSU’s Gartrell Johnson, who ran for 285 yards.
It also had what many coaches would consider a foolhardy play, a bomb to a tight end with 2 seconds left in the first
quarter half by the Rams.
Despite an awesome job by Fresno, Colorado State won 40-35. And this bowl season is underway.
