CSU Ground Game Wears Down UTSA In 23-14 Win

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) – Dalyn Dawkins ran for 68 yards and a score, and Izzy Matthews added 49 yards and a touchdown run, to lead Colorado State past UTSA 23-14 on Saturday.

Dawkins carried the ball in from a yard out to score to put CSU up 10-7 before the first quarter ended.

Matthews later scored on a 6-yard run to extend CSU’s lead to 17-7. Dalton Sturm then led an eight-play, 75-yard scoring drive – capped by his 16-yard pass to Brady Jones – to bring UTSA to within 17-14 with 20 seconds left before the half.

Colorado State’s Bryan Wyatt made a 28-yard field goal to put the Rams up 20-14 as time expired before the break.

Wyatt missed attempts from 38 and 33 yards with two seconds left, but back-to-back offside calls on UTSA (1-1) provided a third attempt.

Sturm threw for 176 yards, two scores and had an interception.

Colorado State (1-1) finished with 220 yards rushing.
