Football Scoop reports that Colorado State has hired Tennessee quality control assistant Eric Lewis to serve as cornerbacks coach.

Lewis spent the 2017 season as an analyst for the Vols. He previously spent two seasons as defensive backs coach at Georgia State and additionally has coordinating experience, having worked as DC at Weber State and Eastern Michigan.

Football Scoop reports that Colorado State will hire Kentucky defensive consultant John Jancek, potentially to serve as defensive coordinator.

Colorado State looked all set to bring on Alabama DB coach Derrick Ansley as defensive coordinator, but that's fallen through, with the Raiders ultimately hiring Ansley away from the Tide. Jancek might be next in line. He has previous coordinating experience, working as Tennessee's DC from 2013-15.

Colorado State signed four-star 2018 G Devin Phillips.

Colorado State had one of -- if not the --best recruiting classes of any of the non Power Five conferences, and Phillips might be the jewel of said class. He's a former TCU commit who also had offers like Miami and Texas Tech, among others. Reports indicate he's a strong blocker who is difficult to disengage from, but will need to work on pass protection. Phillips has the size (6'2/304) has the size and strength to be an immediate player for Colorado State.

Colorado State senior QB Nick Stevens completed 25-of-52 passes for 320 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 31-28 loss to Marshall in the Gildan New Mexico Bowl.

Stevens tried his darnedest to lead the Rams to a late comeback after they fell behind 31-14 entering the fourth quarter, but it just wasn't to be. The 6-foot-3, 215-pounder passed for 3,804 yards with a 29/10 TD/INT ratio for the campaign as a whole. The All-Mountain West first-teamer will be heading off to the East-West Shrine Game now that he's called it a collegiate career. At this juncture, he should be viewed as a likely undrafted free agent come the spring even despite what's been a stellar close to his time at Colorado State.

Colorado State senior WR Michael Gallup caught six passes for 68 yards in Saturday's 31-28 loss to Marshall in the Gildan New Mexico Bowl.

Gallup (6'1/203) almost had himself a brilliant touchdown grab in the fourth quarter, but that was overturned on replay when it was determined that he was unable to get his foot down in bounds. For the campaign, the senior received Pro Football Focus' highest grade for any draft-eligible wideout. Draft Analyst's Chris Tripodi notes that the prolific receiver "plays physical football and knows how to use his size and strength to his advantage both as a receiver and running after the catch." While the outlet currently stamps Gallup with a fifth-round grade, he could catapult toward the late Day 2 conversation with a strong evaluating process. The Senior Bowl awaits him in January as he begins prep for his professional career.

Colorado State redshirt senior RB Dalyn Dawkins returned to Saturday's Gildan New Mexico Bowl showdown with Marshall after leaving briefly due to an undisclosed injury.

Dawkins was forced out after coming down injured in the first quarter, with Izzy Matthews taking over for him in the short term. The redshirt senior is now back in the game and should be able to resume his normal carry-load barring a further setback.

Colorado State redshirt senior RB Dalyn Dawkins left Saturday's Gildan New Mexico Bowl against Marshall due to an undisclosed injury.

Dawkins was injured in the first quarter. While Colorado State passes along that he is sidelined for the time being, the senior back is not yet being ruled out from returning to the game. Consider him questionable to return. Izzy Matthews will see the bulk of carries while he's out. We'll pass along updates as available.

Colorado State redshirt freshman RB Rashaad Boddie has been suspended for the first half of Saturday's Gildan New Mexico Bowl tilt against Marshall.

Boddie (6'0/225) is sitting out the first half due to an unspecified violation of team rules. It'll be the Dalyn Dawkins and Izzy Matthews Show on Saturday. Along with Boddie, fellow running back Marvin Kinsey has also been suspended for the first half of the New Mexico Bowl.

Colorado State junior RB Izzy Matthews (collarbone) is playing in Saturday's Gildan New Mexico Bowl showdown with Marshall.

Matthews sustained the collarbone break against Wyoming at the beginning of November. Now cleared for Saturday's bowl, he'll resume working as a complementary piece alongside Dalyn Dawkins. For the season, Matthews has rushed for 588 yards (4.8 YPC) and eight touchdowns.

Colorado State sophomore RB Marvin Kinsey Jr. has been suspended for the first half of Saturday's Gildan New Mexico Bowl date with Marshall.

Kinsey was one of three Rams players hit with first-half suspensions due to undisclosed violations of team rules. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound sophomore has been used sparingly this season. As has been the case throughout the campaign, Dalyn Dawkins and Izzy Matthews (returning from a collarbone injury) will handle the bulk of carries versus the Thundering Herd.

Colorado State HC Mike Bobo signed a three-year extension to stay with the Rams.

The new contract will keep Bobo at Colorado State through 2022. It also increased his pay in 2018 to $1.8 million over his $1.65 million under the old contract, and he'll receive raises of $100,000 each year. In his time at the school, the former Georgia offensive coordinator has a record of 21-17, and has lead the Rams to a bowl game in all three seasons. Bobo and CSU will take on Marshall on Saturday in the New Mexico Bowl.

Colorado State junior RB Izzy Matthews (collarbone) is probable to play against Marshall on Saturday in the New Mexico Bowl.

Matthews broke his collarbone in a loss to Wyoming on November 4, and missed the rest of the regular season. Assuming he's back, he'll serve as the backup to Dalyn Dawkins in the game against the Thundering Herd.

Colorado State senior C Jake Bennett accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

Bennett was named First-Team All-Mountain West recently. He was a second-team all-conference selection last season. Bennett anchored a line that paved the way for over 2,400 rushing yards and surrendered only 0.67 sacks per game this season.

Colorado State senior DB Jordan Fogal has been granted a sixth year of eligibility.

Fogal came over to Colorado State as a graduate transfer from Utah in spring, but because he missed time with ACL injuries at the school and previously at the JUCO level, he's been given one more year to play. He started all 12 games for the Rams in 2018, finishing with 66 tackles and an interception.

Colorado State senior QB Nick Stevens accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

Stevens leads the Mountain West in passing yards (3,479), passing yards per game (289.9), passing touchdowns (27) and total offense (301.5) through 12 games. He's completed 64 percent of his passes. Stevens (6'3/215) is probably on the outside looking in at the moment with regards to his odds of getting drafted. Ten quarterbacks got drafted in the spring, and he's outside the top-10 in most industry quarterback ranking lists.
