    Colorado wins a close one against rival Colorado State.

    In a back and forth game that featured 8 lead changes, Sophomore Qaurterback Tyler Hansen led the Buffs to an overtime win in another thrilling Mile High Showdown.

    Darrell Scott broke loose on a screen pass that gained 60 yards, setting up a two yard touchdown on a play-action pass from Hansen to FB Jake Behrens, putting Colorado up 31-27 with just over 2 minutes to play. The Rams answered right back with an 80 yard touchdown pass from Jake Stucker to WR Rashaun Greer (5 rec, 177 yds). With 1:18 to play, Hansen and the young Buffaloes offense took the field, trailing by 3. Hansen methodically led the Buffs down the field and set K Aric Goodman up for a 26 yard field goal attempt, which he made to send the game into overtime.

    After taking a sack on 3rd and 10 from the 25, Colorado State missed a long field goal attempt to open the overtime session. From there, the Buffs again looked to their Sophomore kicker, this time from 34 yards. Goodman split the uprights to give the Buffs an opening-day victory over their in-state rival.

    Buffs D holds off Toledo

    Hampered by 3 offensive turnovers, two of which were returned for touchdowns, the Colorado defense showed incredible resolve and held off a fiesty Toledo team to help the Buffs improve to 2-0 on the season.

    Colorado, which never trailed during the game, scored quickly on its first possession on a 40 yard run by RB Darrell Scott, and took a 26-14 lead into the 4th quarter. Now up 15, with the game winding down, the Buffs had a chance to seal the victory, but a Scott fumble was returned 55 yards for a score with just under 2 minutes left. A successful 2 point conversion cut Colorado's lead to 7. Toledo failed to recover the onside kick, however, and the Buffs held on for a hard-fought 32-22 victory.

    Colorado pulls off the upset in Morgantown

    The Buffs chose a great time to have their best game of the season; A nationally televised game on a Thursday night against the #17 team in the country. Solid efforts on both sides of the ball and a break-out game from WR Marques Simas led CU to a wild upset over #17 West Virginia.

    After a game-tying drive that took up almost the entire 4th quarter, it was the Buffs defense that came up big, and once again gave the offense a chance to win the game. WVU had 1:35 to work with, but a three-and-out left CU with 1:05 to engineer a game-winning drive of their own. Tyler Hansen connected with WR Andre Simmons for 24 yards to put the Buffs into WVU territory. Ultimately, it again came down to an Aric Goodman field goal, and once again, the Sophomore kicker came through.

    Offense: B
    The offense was fairly balanced in this one as it went for 381 total yards (116 rush, 265 pass). The hurry-up offense was at its best in this one, twice scoring must-have touchdowns with the clock running out.

    Offensive MVP: Marques Simas
    Simas called his break-out performance "a taste of what's to come." He hauled in 7 catches for 110 yards and caught a huge 22 yard touchdown to end the first half.

    Defense: A-
    Again it was the defense that kept the Buffs in this one. The unit held a very fast West Virginia team in check without giving up a big play. The biggest series of the game came when the D forced WVU to punt with just over a minute left in the game.

    Defensive MVP: Linebackers
    Jeff Smart, Marcus Burton, BJ Beatty, and Mike Sipili kept WVU's running game in check and didn't let Noel Devine bust any huge plays.

    Missed opportunities cost Colorado its chance to upset Texas

    Colorado outplayed the 2nd ranked Longhorns in almost every facet of the game, except for one: Turnovers. The Buffs turned the ball over 6 times, including 5 fumbles, as they fell 20-14 to Texas in Austin.

    The Buffs defense was stout again, holding the Longhorns offense to just 241 yards, while limiting Heisman hopeful Colt McCoy to 150 yards through the the air. However, it was the Longhorns D that came up with big hits one after another, and big play after big play. CU failed to score 3 times in the redzone, twice coughing the ball up near the goal line. Texas CB Deon Beasley returned a fumble 36 yards for a touchdown early in the 4th quarter, putting the game out of reach.

    Offense: D+
    6 turnovers makes it tough to beat just about anybody, let alone the #2 team in the country. Managing only 1 score in 5 red zone tries makes it nearly impossible. The Buffs had some success through the air, but managed just 5 total yards on the ground.

    Offensive MVP: Tyler Hansen
    When he wasn't getting sacked, Hansen was able to move the ball against the Texas secondary. He finished 27-40 for 318 yards, but was unable to find the endzone.

    Defense: A
    Without the effort from the D this game would have been very ugly. They held an offense used to gaining over 400 yards to just 241 and Texas only had 7 first downs. They also kept Texas from scoring on each their red zone chances.

    Defensive MVP: Team
    It was a team effort keeping this potent offense in check. Decent game from everyone on the field.

    Colorado drops a winnable game at home against Kansas

    For the second straight week the Buffs outplayed its opponent, but failed to get the win. This time it was Kansas that cashed in on CU's offensive struggles, as the Buffs lost 28-16 in front of 8 visiting recruits.

    Tyler Hansen was knocked out of the game in the 2nd quarter, and backup Cody Hawkins fumbled on his first play. Kansas DT Williams, who weighs 338 Lbs, rumbled 77 yards for a score, marking the 5th time a defense has taken a turnover to house against the Buffs this season.

    Cody Hawkins was sacked 8 times, setting up many 3rd and long situations. The Buffs just don't have the playmakers necessary at WR to dig themselves out of those holes, and it showed in this one. Red zone woes continue.

    Offensive MVP: Darrell Scott
    Scott was the lone bright spot on offense, gaining 95 yards on 22 carries, and scoring the Buffs only touchdown.

    Defense: B
    The numbers look pretty good, but the defense failed to keep KU out of the end zone in critical situations.

    Defensive MVP: Marquez Herrod
    Herrod was very active with 6 tackles, 2 TFL, and 2 sacks.

    Buffs storm Manhattan, beat Big XII North rival Kansas State

    Coach Shmeezil challenged his team before the game, telling them that if they wanted any chance to achieve their preseason goals they had better turn things around in a hurry. The young Buffs answered the call. In a game they had to win to keep their Big XII North title chances alive, Colorado played maybe its most complete game of the season, beating Kansas State 24-14.

    The defense held a potent K State offense in check, forcing 4 interceptions, while only allowing 5 yards on the ground. On the other side, the offense, run by backup QB Cody Hawkins, played mistake-free, hard-nosed football, having possession for over 18 minutes of the game.

    Darrell Scott broke out of a mini slump, eclipsing the 100 yard mark for just the second game this season, and made the play of the game when he took a screen pass 57 yards for a score to put the game out of reach.

    Offense: B
    The running game got back on track as CU rushed for 159 yards and two scores. The game was won when the offense answered a quick K State score by methodically driving down the field for a field goal, giving them a two score lead late in the 4th.

    Offensive MVP: Darrell Scott
    Scott rushed for 108 yards and a score, and also caught two passes for 61 yards, 57 of which came on the play of the game when he took a screen pass to the house on a big 3rd down in the 3rd quarter.

    Defense: A
    The D held K State, which came into the game with the 2nd ranked offense in the country, to just 296 total yards. The Wildcats challenged CU's secondary, throwing the majority of the game, and the Buffs responded by picking off 4 passes.

    Defensive MVP: Secondary
    K State came out firing, throwing on 42 of its 50 plays from scrimmage, but only managed 291 yards. Chapelle Brown and Jimmy Smith each made huge interceptions. Brown out-jumped KSU's star receiver Brandon Banks on a play that looked similar to Banks earlier TD catch, and Smith stuffed a KSU redzone opportunity by picking off a pass in the endzone late in the 1st half.
