Former Northern Colorado Punter Mitch Cozad is set to be sentenced today in Weld County. The 22 year old was convicted of assault in the stabbing attack on UNC Starter Rafael Mendoza.

He faces between 5 and 16 years in prison. His fiancée and mother are sticking behind him. They say Cozad has been spending his days in jail reading the bible, playing chess and envisioning a career as an attorney once he's out of prison.
