Sperry catch crucial

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Although there were many key plays made by CSU players Saturday in the Rams' 40-35 New Mexico Bowl win over Fresno State, tight end Kory Sperry came up with one of the biggest just before halftime. Sperry, a 6-foot-6, 250-pound senior from Pueblo, leapt between Fresno State defenders Sharrod Davis and Lorne Bell in the corner of the end zone to haul in a 22-yard touchdown pass with two seconds left in the first half."That's Billy and the O-line," Sperry said. "The O-line comes out there and has perfect protection and Billy puts a perfect ball out there. The rest was my job. They did all the work; I just had to come down with it."The touchdown catch, Sperry's sixth of the season, cut the Fresno State lead to 21-20 and gave CSU players the momentum they needed to come back and win in the second half."It definitely brought us back into the game," linebacker Ricky Brewer said. "Kory Sperry's a big playmaker, and he was able to give the whole team momentum in one play."
