2020 Rams Recap - Week 6 - COVID Means Cancelled


COVID Picks Up Second Third Victory Over the Rams

Thanksgiving - a time for food, family, and football. I ate well. I talked to my extended family on Zoom. And the CSU game was cancelled yet again for COVID. This time, the CSU President and Larimer County cancelled the game due to rising COVID numbers in the area and within the football program. The team was hours away from heading to Colorado Springs on Wednesday when the news broke that the game was no longer on the table. There was no joy in Mudville, for mighty Casey had struck out. 

Upcoming: San Diego State Aztecs

The Aztecs had an interesting road this weekend as well, although their path resulted in a game being played three states to the east. SDSU was scheduled to host Fresno State, but Fresno was unable to travel due to their own set of COVID cases. Instead, San Diego State travelled to our home state to take on the Buffaloons from Boulder (the Pac-12 requires any make-up games to be held at Pac-12 stadiums). After going down 14 points early, the Aztecs scored 10 before halftime to make it a four point game. That was as close as it got as the Boulderites added a couple field goals to make it a double-digit victory. San Diego State returns home to finish up their unofficial state of Colorado home and home series as they host my Rammies on Saturday. Most likely, the Rams will be unable to travel due to COVID complications and another game will be off the schedule. Next highest probability is the Rams traveling to southern California only to get beat by the home squad. There is a slight chance that the Rams are able to travel and come home with a victory. We always do play SDSU better on the road in good weather. Our struggles against them seem to always come at home in the cold and snow of Colorado. Go figure. But as of now, the game is on and we hope that a CSU football game can finally grace our television screens this weekend. 

Regardless, this season is matching 2020 in every way shape and form: disappointment and cancellations. The good news is that the Bronze Boot resides in Fort Collins and NOTHING can take that away from us. Go Rams, I guess?
