After a season-opening home loss to TCU, the Minnesota Golden Gophers will travel to take on the Colorado State Rams on Saturday. The Rams won their season opener, but their 52-point rout of Savannah State was expected.
With kickoff slated for 2:30 Central Time (3:30 p.m Eastern; 1:30 local time in Fort Collins, Colorado), here’s where you can see and hear Saturday afternoon’s battle between Big Ten and Mountain West teams.
Point Spread (Vegas Insider.com): Minnesota (-6)
Over/Under (Vegas Insider.com)-54.5 points
Television: CBS Sports Network
Announcers: Ben Holden (play-by-play) and Jay Feely (analyst)
Radio (Minnesota): KFAN-FM 100.3/Gopher Radio Network/Gophersports.com
Announcers: Mike Grimm (play-by-play), Darrell Thompson (analyst) and Justin Gaard (sideline)
Radio (Colorado area): ESPN 105.5 Denver
The relative obscurity of CBS Sports Network is likely to keep this game from reaching a broad national television audience, but fans and followers in each local market will surely seek it out no matter what. I think this will stand out as a great game on the college football slate this Saturday, especially with a lot of non-conference mismatches coming across the country. If Colorado State wins on their home field, it will be hard to consider it a big upset.
If I were a betting man, for those that may consider such things, I would bet on Colorado State to cover the spread and I’d take the under on the over/under.
