Why Colorado Has You Covered

The Colorado State defense has wreaked havoc in 2021. The Rams will look to do it again in the season opener. The Rams recorded 39 sacks, one of his best marks in the FBS, against Colorado State where he completed less than 58% of his passes. Senior linebacker Camron Carter is back as a cornerstone of the defense and has 100 tackles, 6 sacks and 1 interception in 2021.

Quarterback Klay Millen was a top high school contender, and Colorado State added Torrey Horton and Mercan Stovall to wide receivers, adding more than 1,300 receiving yards in Nevada last season. Norvell has a record of 33-26 in his five years in Nevada, and should bring a fresh approach that can capitalize on a Michigan defense that has lost quite a bit of high-end talent from its best record in 2021.
