LAS VEGAS (AP) First there was shock, then confusion. But in the two weeks since Colorado State saw head coach Jim McElwain leave for Florida, it has found a way to move on.
With an early bowl game on the calendar, the Rams didn't have much time to dwell on the change.
Saturday's Las Vegas Bowl against No. 23 Utah is a chance for Colorado State to win 11 games for only the second time in school history and also to defeat a ranked team from a major conference, something it didn't do in the regular season.
The Rams (10-2) fell into rebound mode early this month when McElwain left after his third season to become head coach at Florida.
