in which CSU scored 30-or-more points. The Rams are now 10-2 under Fairchild                 2010. He’s now tied for seventh all-time at CSU with three 300-yard passing

wins as head coach have been sealed in the final moments.                                    Sept. 4, 2010).
   CSU was 6-2 in these games during his inaugural season as head coach, 2008,
   when six of the Rams’ seven wins, and eight of the team’s 13 overall games, were
   decided in the final three minutes.
   The Rams were 2-4 in 2009 and 1-1 in 2010. They’re 2-2 so far this season.

Close games: The Rams are now 9-8 under Steve Fairchild in games decided by one
score, or eight points or less. They’re 4-5 at home, 4-3 on the road, and 1-0 at neu-
tral sites (the 2008 New Mexico Bowl).
   Including the loss to SJSU, they’ve won three of their last five such games, 2011
   wins over New Mexico and Utah State, both on the road, and a 36-34 triumph at
   home vs. Idaho in 2010. They lost a near-upset at San Diego State, 24-19, in
   2010. All five games were decided in the final minutes.

Two TD receptions: Lou Greenwood’s two receiving TDs, a single-game career best,
made him the first CSU player with multiple touchdowns through the air since Ray-
mond Carter caught a pair in a win vs. Idaho, Sept. 25, 2010. He also was the first
CSU wide receiver to catch a touchdown pass since his own 43-yard reception from
Pete Thomas vs. New Mexico, Oct. 30, 2010.

Halftime deficit: The Rams have trailed at halftime four times in five games this sea-
son. They’re 2-2 in those games.

QB leading rusher: Pete Thomas became the first CSU quarterback to lead the Rams
in rushing since Billy Farris had 19 yards in a 45-14 loss vs. TCU, Nov. 25, 2006. QB
Caleb Hanie also led the Rams in rushing that season on two occasions.

First-drive points allowed: The last time CSU allowed points on the first drive of a
game was Oct. 30, 2010, vs. New Mexico. Entering the game, CSU was one of two
teams in the nation that had not allowed a point in the first quarter, joining Stanford.
Pitt allowed first-period points for the first time this season in its win against South
Florida the preceding Thursday night.

Linebacker | 6-2 | 244 | Sophomore | TR | Baltimore, Md. (Boys Town, Neb. – Nebraska-Omaha)
2011 (Sophomore): Immediately eligible because Nebraska-Omaha disbanded its football program, has quickly adapted to the CSU defensive scheme, playing in five
games with four starts…Made his Division I debut in the opener at New Mexico (Sept. 3), entering late in the first quarter; with just over four minutes left in the game, and
CSU protecting a 14-10 lead, combined with C.J. James to sack Tarean Austin on fourth-and-14…A week later in a big win vs. Northern Colorado (Sept. 10), earned his
first major-college start, as the Rams’ middle linebacker…Broke up a UNC pass on the second play from scrimmage, then forced a third-quarter incompletion, hurrying the
pass by launching himself at the quarterback…Started again at MLB in Denver loss vs. Colorado (Sept. 17), making a key play on a first-quarter drive to flush QB Tyler
Hansen out of the pocket and into the arms of teammate C.J. James; also played defensive end during several snaps in the second half…Paramount in exhilarating win at
Utah State (Sept. 24), earned Mountain West Defensive Player of the Week honors after helping the Rams pull back into the contest in the second half, then win it in
double-overtime, 35-34…Gave life to the Rams with USU up 14-3 in the third quarter, scooping up a Michael Smith fumble in the backfield and returning it 15 yards for his
first career touchdown, then on the next series sacked QB Chuckie Keeton, rushing from a DE position, to force a punt...Earlier against Aggies, made a leaping pass
deflection to prevent a possible TD and finished with a team-leading 14 tackles…Made another game-changing play in 38-31 loss vs. San Jose State (Oct. 1), with the
Spartans driving into CSU territory in a 31-31 game and eight minutes remaining in the fourth quarter; sacked QB Matt Faulkner and launched a fumble high in the air,
before teammate Davis Burl recovered to set up the Rams at the Spartans’ 45; replay officials reviewed the play and upheld the call.

(Sept. 26-Oct. 24, 1998)…Matched that Haggans streak a week later, in 38-31 loss vs. San Jose State (Oct. 1), with a fourth-quarter sack in which he forced a fumble
recovered by the Spartans, with the game knotted at 31; also recorded three hurries, one that forced a second-quarter punt, and tackled RB Brandon Rutley on third down

39 AUSTIN GILLMORE
Fullback | 6-0 | 217 | Junior | 1L | Bushland, Texas (West Texas A&M)
2011 (Junior): After shifting from linebacker to fullback on Aug. 18, little more than two weeks before the opener, played in the first two games, with one start…Coaches
saw enough in him over his first few practices to dub him the starting fullback entering the opener at New Mexico (Sept. 3)…Made his offensive debut in Lobos contest,
entering the game on the second play; caught his first career pass, in the third quarter…A week later vs. Northern Colorado (Sept. 10), made his first major-college start, in
the CSU backfield, but on the Rams’ first offensive play, a 31-yard Raymond Carter run that set up a quick TD, sustained a knee injury and did not return…In Denver loss
vs. Colorado (Sept. 17), his first game out of action, was the first player to congratulate his brother after a key, 34-yard reception that set up a first-quarter TD.

Tight End | 6-6 | 244 | Sophomore | 1L | Bushland, Texas (Bushland)
2011 (Sophomore): Having shifted from defensive end to tight end just nine days before the spring game, and heading into fall camp as the Rams’ No. 1 tight end, has
started five games…Made his offensive debut at New Mexico (Sept. 3), making his first career catch in the second quarter, followed by a leaping 33-yard touchdown,
CSU’s first of 2010 and the initial score of his career, late in the first half…In home-opening win vs. Northern Colorado (Sept. 10), helped open a hole for Chris Nwoke on a
second-quarter TD run…In Denver loss vs. Colorado (Sept. 17), caught five passes for 84 yards, including a 23-yard fourth-quarter touchdown from WR Charles Lovett,
off a Pete Thomas lateral; on first CSU drive in Buffs contest, took a screen 34 yards to set up the Rams’ first touchdown, and later, in the third quarter, converted a third-
and-11 with a 12-yard reception, setting up his TD reception from Lovett… Played a lead role in helping CSU to exhilarating, 35-34 triumph in double overtime at Utah
State (Sept. 24)…First, with 42 seconds left after CSU had just pulled to 21-19 with a Chris Nwoke TD run, even after the Rams committed a 5-yard false-start penalty,
essentially caught an 8-yard pass from Thomas for a two-point conversion that sent the game to OT; then, in the first overtime period, caught a 7-yard TD in the back of the
end zone that knotted the score again…On Nwoke’s TD at the end of regulation, somehow blocked two Utah State defenders at the point of attack…In 38-31 loss vs. San
Jose State (Oct. 1), caught a pass in a fifth-straight game.

QB Chuckie Keeton near the Rams’ goal line, but the ball flew out of bounds, then finished the quarter, with the score tied 21-21, by dropping USU’s Chuck Jacobs 2 yards

scrimmage, giving the Aggies a second shot at the win, but teammate Momo Thomas came through with the game-saving tackle…Two possessions earlier against USU,
batted away a pass that could’ve helped the Aggies move into position to attempt a game-winning field goal in the final minute of regulation…Late in third quarter of 38-31

4 PETE THOMAS
Quarterback | 6-5 | 217 | Sophomore | 1L | El Cajon, Calif. (Valhalla)
2011 (Sophomore): CSU’s first returning starter at quarterback since 2007, has started 17 straight games, including all five this season…Elected Aug. 26 one of five
permanent team captains, one of two on offense, among the youngest season-long captains in team history…In season-opening, 14-10 win at New Mexico (Sept. 3),
stood in the pocket to take a hit immediately after launching a 33-yard TD pass to Crockett Gillmore late in the second quarter, giving the Rams a 7-3 advantage; enjoyed
the second-most accurate day by a CSU passer ever…His .846 completion percentage (22-for-26) against UNM was eclipsed by only Caleb Hanie, who connected on 20 of
23 passes (.870) in another 14-10 win, at Colorado, Sept. 9, 2006…In home-opening win over Northern Colorado (Sept. 10)), hit 11 targets, including a 9-yard pass to
Lou Greenwood early in the second half to eclipse 3,000 career yards and become the youngest player and first sophomore in school annals to reach that landmark; soon
after, found a hole and ran for a career-long 17 yards, helping set up a field goal...In Denver loss vs. Colorado (Sept. 17), scored his first career rushing touchdown, on the
opening drive. a 4-yard run; had three carries for 14 yards on the drive, including a 9-yard run to set up his TD on third down…Later in Buffs contest, made his first career
reception, a 4-yard loss on a pass from Raymond Carter…Calmly directed CSU to exhilarating, 35-34 triumph in double overtime at Utah State (Sept. 24), orchestrating
three touchdown drives in the final minutes…First, with 42 seconds left after CSU had just pulled to 21-19 with a Chris Nwoke TD run, kept the Rams together after a 5-
yard false-start penalty, and sent the game to OT with a essentially a 7-yard pass to Gillmore for a two-point conversion; then, in the first overtime period, found Gillmore
again, in the back of the end zone, for a 7-yard TD that knotted the score again…Led the Rams on valiant comeback in eventual 38-31 loss vs. San Jose State (Oct. 1),
guiding CSU to a 31-31 tie after a 24-7 deficit; finished with a career-best 387 yards, and tied another personal high with three TD passes, in addition to another rushing
TD…Hit Lou Greenwood on the first two touchdowns, a perfectly placed, 41-yard strike over the middle to get the Rams on the scoreboard, and a gorgeous 25-yard strike
late in the first half; then found Thomas Coffman on a 47-yard streak to bring the Rams within one score late in the third quarter…Also in Spartans contest, led the Rams
in rushing, becoming the first CSU QB to do so since Billy Farris (11/25/06 vs. TCU), made a nice move to avoid a tackler and dive poetically into the end zone on a 9-yard
run that tied the game, 31-31, with 11:33 left in regulation, capping an eight-play, 80-yard drive.
