Colorado State at Boston College: 5 Big Questions — #3

How did the Colorado State offense change with the departure of Rams’ all-time leading rusher Kapri Bibbs?

Similarly to Boston College in terms of spreading out the production, but not in terms of overall results.

Without Andre Williams, Boston College has actually increased their per-game rushing output by over 100 yards so far this season, but stretching the burden out amongst five or six players instead of containing all the yards with one guy. The quarterback is also a major part of that, but the passing game getting even less productive has been a side effect.

Meanwhile, Colorado State has seen a bit of a downturn in their rushing production, and they are also spreading the load, but to just two players, not five or six.

Though, as is the opposite of Boston College, with their run game producing a little less, their passing game has produced a lot more.
