The move reunites Bauta with Bobo, who was a Bulldogs assistant from 2001–14, serving as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach the last eight of those years.
Bauta, a redshirt junior, has already graduated from Georgia and is eligible to play right away in 2016. In his lone start for the Bulldogs, he completed 15 of 33 passes for 154 yards and four interceptions in a 27–3 loss to the Florida Gators this season.
The West Palm Beach native is likely to serve as a backup with the Rams to Nick Stevens, who finished this season with 2,369 yards, 21 touchdowns and 12 interceptions as a sophomore. Colorado State also has redshirt freshmen J.C. Robles and Chandler Drachslin on the roster.
