Colorado State made it official, announcing Georgia OC Mike Bobo as the school's new head coach.

Bobo spent practically his entire career at Georgia working his way up from GA to offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach outside of one season with Jacksonville State. Colorado State's former head coach, Jim McElwain, recently jumped to Florida. Recently Bobo has focused on running the football with Todd Gurley and nick Chubb, but when running back injuries hit he certainly was not afraid of airing it out with Aaron Murray.

The Denver Post reported Monday that Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo will become the next head coach at Colorado State.

Bobo, who has overseen the Bulldogs' offense since 2006, is one of the nation's most respected assistants. Despite inconsistent QB play, Georgia led the SEC in scoring offense (41.7 points per game) this season. At CSU, Bobo would replace Jim McElwain as head coach.

Colorado State sophomore WR Rashard Higgins had seven receptions for 110 yards before leaving Saturday's Las Vegas Bowl in the fourth quarter with a lower leg injury.

The Biletnikoff Award finalist was essentially the Rams' only source of offense during the game, so of course he hurt himself before the final gun sounded. Higgins, who was named to the Associated Press All-American first team, leads the nation with 1,750 receiving yards. He finished the season with 96 receptions and 17 touchdowns.

Colorado State redshirt senior OT Ty Sambrailo struggled to contain star Utah defensive end Nate Orchard in Saturday's lopsided loss to the Utes.

NFL.com's Bryan Fischer wrote that Orchard "got the better of the matchup and won on all cards in a unanimous decision." A formerly high-powered Rams offense mustered only 10 points, though obviously the unhinging of the entire offense can't be blamed on one player, especially a lineman. Still, this was one of the bowl season's biggest matchups, and Sambrailo did not acquit himself well. Coming in, he was a consensually higher rated prospect than the player who ate his lunch. "Sambrailo, who was not matched up against Orchard on every play, did what he could to hold off the Utah defensive line by showing off his power on run blocks and strength in pass protection, but he has had better games against top competition," Fischer wrote.

Dee Hart - RB - Rams

Colorado State senior RB Dee Hart ran for only 21 yards on seven carries in Saturday's loss to Utah.

Once the 45-10 Utah victory got out of hand, the Rams' coaching staff pulled Hart from the game, ending his collegiate career. It was a disappointing finish for the former Alabama Crimson Tide runner, but Hart still enjoyed an ultra productive season with 1,275 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns.
Dec 20 - 8:40 PM

Colorado State senior QB Garrett Grayson threw for 227 yards and an interception in Saturday's 45-10 loss to Utah in the Las Vegas Bowl.

Grayson probably knows that he's going to be in a dog fight to prove he deserves to get drafted on Day 3, and Saturday afternoon will not help him in that respect. Utah has a decent defense, but it has struggled to defend the pass this season, leading to the belief that Grayson could be in for a big game. Instead, the senior struggled to get in a rhythm and move the offense. The Mountain West Conference offensive player of the year will next get a chance to impress scouts in the Senior Bowl.

NFL Media reporter Alber Breer notes that one AFC Scout believes Colorado State redshirt senior OT Ty Sambrailo is "athletic" and "probably best suited to play on the right side or even at guard."

"He's athletic," The AFC scout told NFL Media's Albert Breer."He's probably best suited to play on the right side or even at guard. He's been a great run blocker for them, he can really get to the second level. ... He's not gonna overwhelm you with his size, he won't overwhelm you with his athleticism. But he does everything well." TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reported in October that Sambrailo is receiving grades from a top 45 choice all the way down to a fifth-round prospect. Brugler adds that "there is a lot to like about Sambrailo's NFL potential."

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reported in October that Sambrailo is receiving grades from a top 45 choice all the way down to a fifth-round prospect. Brugler adds that "there is a lot to like about Sambrailo's NFL potential."
