Luckily for us we played defense today. Despite the record we have actually played a solid brand of defense in the early going. Tyler Hansen literally went off considering our system and had 4 td's passing on the day. All in all the season is still totally up for grabs in the BigXII and we look forward to playing against OU and Nebraska in the coming weeks.
This game was closer then we would have liked as Baylor came in ready to play. The overall stats in the game are almost dead even with the exception of the Colorado running game opposed to the Baylor passing attack. Averaging over 5 yards a carry with a couple big runs is what made the difference in this one. Colorado is cruising along right now and after playing their next conference opponent Texas Tech, they will have a major obstacle to climb in the form of Tuco's Oklahoma Sooners.

This game had it all! Colorado was up 10 in this game only to see the lead squandered away twice! Basically, it was 17-7 late in the 1st half and with less than :10 seconds to go Tech hits a long bomb to get into FG range and it was 17-10. A score after getting the ball knotted us at 17. They wound up hitting a FG to go up 20-17 and that led us to the 4th qtr. Tyler Hansen and Rodney Stewart refused to take a defeat and drove down the field for a go ahead TD 24-20. Tech showed they were just as determined to win as they would score what seemed to be the game winning TD with under a minute left in the game 27-24 TTech. Scotty McKnight had been called for numorous special teams holding penalties in previous weeks and that's what makes this even sweeter! He returned the kickoff back for a TD and the game was over as Colorado outlasts Texas Tech 31-27!!!
After dropping a heartbreaker to Oklahoma(gg Tuco), the Buffaloes continued to stumble in a blowout loss to Kansas. This week was a whole other story as we dominated from start to finish. Along with a shocking pair of Nebraska losses in a row, the Buffaloes now have a real serious chance at playing for the Big XII title!!! The big showdown against Nebraska is a couple weeks away so there should be a firework show in the not so distant future.
Starting to build up a little momentum at this point for our program. This week we beat K State in a closer then expected matchup. Luckily we were able to control the clock and come through with key plays when we needed them in this one.
This game was a tale of two halfs. After that was done we played 2 OT's to settle the score. Nebraska started off with a 7-0 lead. Colorado answered right back with a long TD run 7-7. Over the rest of the half Colorado created a couple of turnovers which enabled them to take a 21-7 score into halftime. Nebraska clawed their way back into this game slowly but surely. Late in the 4th quarter they finally tied it up and we were going to overtime!
1st OT Colorado scores on a PA pass oon the first play. Nebraska immediately marches back down field and into the endzone.
2nd OT Nebraska throws an int within the first few plays. Colorado picks up 10-12 yards and kicks the game winning FG for the 31-28 final!!! The one glaring statistic in this one is the turnover battle. Colorado had 0 to the Nebraska 3. GG BK and hopefully we can cross paths again sometime soon.
