BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Senior Grant Stucker celebrated his first collegiate start by throwing for a touchdown and leading Colorado State on five scoring drives in the Rams' 23-17 upset of rival Colorado on Sunday night.
It was the second win for the Mountain West Conference over a Big 12 team in 24 hours, coming on the heels of BYU's stunning 14-13 victory over third-ranked Oklahoma.
Stucker threw a 13-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter to new running back John Mosure, who also had a 1-yard TD run as the Rams (1-0) never trailed in quieting the crowd at Folsom Field.
While Stucker was selected the Rams' quarterback last week over Jon Eastman, Colorado coach Dan Hawkins - who's entering a do-or-die fourth season at Boulder - kept his starter a secret until just before kickoff when his son, junior Cody Hawkins, got the nod over Tyler Hansen.
