MINNEAPOLIS – Colorado State fell to Minnesota, 31-24, on Saturday.

The Rams’ fourth-quarter comeback bid fell just short against the Golden Gophers of the Big Ten Conference.

“I told our guys I’m proud of the way they fought,” coach Mike Bobo said. “It was what I asked for, to keep fighting and give us a chance to be in the game in the fourth quarter, which we were.”

The Rams pulled within seven points with just more than six minutes to play, then got the ball back after forcing a three-and-out.

But the drive stalled and the Rams turned over possession after failing to convert on fourth down with 1:50 to play.

“At the end of the day, they made more plays on third down, they secured a little bit better, but I believe we are close to becoming a pretty good football team,” Bobo said.

The Rams are 2-2 and play host to Wyoming in the annual Border War at 8:15 p.m. Saturday.
