Storylines: The biggest game of the year so far, and what a test it will be. CSU-Pueblo comes in to this one off a tough loss to Colorado Mines where they turned the ball over 4 times. With rain in the forecast and cooler temps, this will be one of those situations where ball security will be at a premium. The Lion defense will get their toughest test tomorrow and the question of whether or not the staff keeps their plan of attack with Preston Wheeler or whether we see Kane Wilson will be dependent upon how effective the offense moves the ball. With the weather being what it will be and with torrential downpours all across North Texas, expect the Lions to attack more on the ground and less through the air, but you could very well see OC Matt Storm open the playbook and see some stuff we have not seen so far this year, and it would not be the first time Storm has ambushed a team with unseen offense. A win would be huge for an in region ranking while a loss would make the Lions margin of error razor thin from this point forward.

See You At The Hawk.
