Aaron Simons and the Colorado Mesa offensive line must keep quarterback Sean Rubalcaba upright if the Mavs want to beat CSU-Pueblo on Saturday at Stocker Stadium.

Trench battle

Line play will be key if Mavs want to beat ThunderWolves

They’ve had that gnawing feeling in their guts since last Nov. 7, when CSU-Pueblo put up four quick-strike touchdowns in the second half to turn a six-point game into a blowout.
No player on the Colorado Mesa football team has experienced beating the ThunderWolves, a team that had lost only one conference game between 2012-15, going 35-1.
And, until someone unseats the ThunderWolves (2-2, 2-1 RMAC), CMU defensive end Blake Nelson said, they’re still the top dogs in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference. The No. 17 Mavericks (4-0, 4-0) are intent on doing their part to do that at 1 p.m. on Saturday at Stocker Stadium.
