The Colorado State Rams enjoyed an eventful first day in Albuquerque Wednesday in preparation for Saturday's Gildan New Mexico Bowl against Washington State. The team flew from Fort Collins-Loveland airport at 10 a.m. Wednesday and was met by bowl officials and a Mariachi band.

The team bused directly to the University of New Mexico's athletic complex for a 90-minute outdoor practice before checking into the team hotel. As the team checked in and got settled in their rooms, Head Coach Jim McElwain and several players took part in a press conference attended by media from Albuquerque, Colorado, Seattle and Spokane.

CSU's first official bowl event was the team welcome dinner Wednesday evening at IT'Z Family Food & Fun, where both the Rams and Cougars ate, mingled and played a variety of games in the fun center.

One of the most anticipated elements of the day was the team's opportunity to go through the Gildan New Mexico Bowl's gift suite back at the team hotel Wednesday night. Each member of the team travel party had the opportunity to choose from a wide assortment of gifts within a specified allowance.

Thursday's schedule called for morning meetings followed by practice at UNM's indoor facility. Thursday afternoon McElwain and the team's four captains--Shaquil Barrett, Shaq Bell, Max Morgan and Weston Richburg--will join their counterparts from WSU for a visit to UNM's Children's Hospital before a New Mexico Bowl team dinner at the Albuquerque Convention Center.

Kickoff for Saturday's game is set for 12 p.m. at University Stadium. The game will be broadcast by ESPN with Mark Jones, Brock Huard and Jessica Mendoza on the call. The Rams' flagship radio station ESPN 102.3 & 105.5 will carry the local call from Gary Miller and Brian Roth, while ESPN Radio will broadcast to a national radio audience with John Sadak, Tom Ramsey and Niki Noto on the call.
