Eastman sees action, but Rams trail UNLV at the half

After one half of play, the Colorado State football team trails UNLV 14-7 in Las Vegas.

Following a 15 play, 86 yard scoring drive by the Rams in the second quarter, which lasted 9:36 and tied the game at seven thanks to a John Mosure run, the Runnin' Rebels responded with an impressive drive of their own, one much shorter than their opponent's.

With 1:36 remaining in the half, UNLV quarterback Omar Clayton put together a six play, 72 yard drive that took only 49 seconds and regained his team the lead with a 13-yard touchdown pass to a wide open Jerriman Robinson.

The biggest story for CSU thus far has been the benching of starting quarterback Grant Stucker, who was replaced by junior Jon Eastman to start the second quarter. Eastman has completed two of his four pass attempts for 19 yards.

Leading the Rams in passing is senior wide receiver Dion Morton, who has completed all four of his attempts for 23 yards.
