Can't make it to Hawai'i this weekend to watch your Colorado State Rams play in person?
Don't worry, you'll be able to watch them live, streaming online.
Without their own television network, the Mountain West Conference has taken to the internet as a way to give their fans the ability to tune in and cheer on their favorite teams.
This Saturday night, the Rams will be in Honolulu, Hawai'i to face the Warriors in a crucial contest for CSU, and you can watch for free in HD on CSURams.com/videos.
“It's free, like everything on Mountain West Network and the feed of it through our websites,” CSU Director of Media Relations Paul Kirk told me via Twitter, Wednesday. “Whole new frontier with Mountain West Network. Great for fans of all sports.”
One Colorado State fan used the service last Saturday when he ran late for the Border War. “I watched the first half of the WYO game on an iPad going down the interstate. It works great in HD,” Russ Sprague said via Twitter.
So, as long as you have access to the internet, you can watch the game.
The Rams need a win to even their record up at 4-4, keeping their dream of going to a bowl alive. Colorado State has been on fire offensively lately, and another strong showing on that side of the ball would be a big boon to their chances. Hawai'i is 0-6 and hungry for a win, but their dreadful defense allows 35.3 points per game.
Now all you have to do is stay up late enough to finish the contest. The game kicks off at 10 p.m. MT Saturday night, which is 6 p.m. Hawai'i Time. That means the final whistle could come after 1 a.m. here in Fort Collins.
But again, don't worry.
Fall asleep and I'll have the recap here for you in the morning.
