    The Ralphie Report

    Week 9

    Buffs 23 #3 Oklahoma Sooners 17

    Colorado would shock the college football landscape with a victory in Norman over #3 Oklahoma. The win keeps the Buffs slim bowl hopes alive, while ending any national title hopes for the previously undefeated Sooners. Defense would be the story as Colorado would commit 6 turnovers, which should have lead to a loss but the Buffs would hold the Sooners to 17 points and scoreless in the sceond half. Offensively the Buffs would cash in on the of opportunities in the redzone lead by HB Hildreth and his 3 rushing TD's. Colorado next head to Lawrence, Kansas for a battle with the Jayhawks.

    It should have been a blowout, but Landry Jones kept blowing it in the redzone. Might be able to get to 6-6.

    Nice? Beating OU despite 6 freakin' turnovers was a gosh-dang miracle! Haha, congrats. Maybe some of that Colorado luck will rub off on me when I get the Sooners ...

    Week 10

    Colorado 23
    Kansas 30

    Colorado headed into the road game against Kansas riding high after last weeks big won over Oklahoma in Norman. Things started off bad and the got worse for the Buffalos this week as the Jayhawks throttled Colorado 30-23. The final score was much closer than the actual game. Kansas took a 14-0 first quarter lead on a pair of 3 yard touchdown runs by Toben Opurum. Kansas tacked on another 10 points in the second quarter while Colorado managed 2 late touchdowns to make the score 24-15 at half. After a scoreless third quarter, Opurum was back at it in the fourth, ripping off a 72 yard touchdown to break Colorado's back. Colorado scored a late touchdown on Tyler Hansen's second touchdown pass of the game to make the final score 30-23. The loss drops Colorado to 3-6 overall and 2-3 in the conference.

    Opurum led the way for Kansas with 153 yards and 3 touchdowns on 21 carries. Hansen was 19 for 39 with 413 yards and 2 tds, but threw 3 picks. Markques Simas was Hansen's favorite target catching 5 balls for 179 yards and 2 scores.

    Colorado was marred by turnovers throwing 3 interceptions and losing 2 fumbles. If they have any shot at a bowl this year they will have to win out starting next week when Iowa State comes to Boulder fresh off a 31-7 drubbing at the hands of Nebraska.

    Colorado. 27
    Iowa State. 14

    In blizzard like conditions, the Colorado Buffalos were looking to keep their slim bowl hopes alive. They jumped out to an early 7 point lead when the opening kickoff was fumbled by Iowas State and scooped up and returned for a touchdown by backup tightend Kyle Slavin. Aric Goodman added a second quarter field goal before a 1 yard Shontrell Johnson touchdown run brought the Cyclones back to within 3 at 10-7. Then, nearing halftime, a 37 yard fumble recovery returned for a touchdown by Colorado linebacker Michael Sipili put Colorado back up 10 at the half, 17-7.

    Iowa State once again pulled to within 3 in the third on a 41 yard touchdown strike from Austen Arnaud to Josh Lenz. That was as close as the Cyclones would get as Colorado tacked on a fourth quarter touchdown pass from Tyler Hansen to Markques Simas and another Aric Goodman field goal, making the final score 27-14.

    Hansen finished 6 for 12 through the air for 73 yards with a touchdown and 2 picks. Freshman running back Quentin Hildreth led the way for the Buffs on the ground, gaining 119 yards on 32 carries.

    The win moves Colorado to 4-6 overall and 3-3 in Big 12 play. They welcome in Kansas State next week.

    Week 12

    Colorado. 13
    Kansas State 10

    The Buffalos started this game right where they left off from the Iowa State game a week ago, turning turnovers into points. In the first quarter, a 61 yard Arthur Jaffee touchdown return on a fumble recovery gave the Buffalos an early 7-0 lead. A 21 yard Aric Goodman field goal just before halftime put Colorado up 10-0 at the break.

    Kansas State was able to bring it back to 10-3 in the third with a 30 yard Josh Cherry field goal. Colorado seemed to have the game in hand midway through the fourth when they were driving inside the Wildcats' 20 yard line when a fumble was scooped by Kansas State linebacker Troy Butler and returned 89 yards for a game tying touchdown. Colorado then mounted another time consuming fourth quarter drive that led to a last secong game winning 23 yard field goal by Aric Goodman. Colorado would hang on to a 13-10 victory.

    Tyler Hansen finished 9 of 17 for 158 yards and an interception. Quentin Hildreth led the way on the ground, gaining 76 hard earned yards on 26 carries.

    The win moves Colorado to 5-6 overall and 4-3 in the Big 12. Their slim bowl hopes still alive, they take on Nebraska in Lincoln next week for a chance to finish 6-6 and give themselves a shot at a bowl.

    Week 13

    Colorado 28
    #10 Nebraska 21

    Colorado came in to Lincoln looking to play giant killer once again. They also needed a win to keep their slim bowl hopes alive. They started early in the first when freshman running back Quentin Hildreth blew through a wide open hole and raced 76 yards down the sideline to paydirt, giving Colorado an early 7 point advantage. That lead wouldn't last long as Dreu Young caught a 14 yard scoring strike from Zac Lee to even the score at 7. The second quarter was dominated by Nebraska scoring on a 52 yard pass from Lee to Niles Paul, giving the Huskers a 14-7 halftime lead.

    The third quarter belonged to the Buffalos after a 48 yard touchdown pass from Tyler Hansen to Travon Patterson, bring the score back to a deadlock heading to the fourth. Colorado would score on a 3 yard drive capping run by fullback DaVaughn Thornton to give Colorado a 7 point lead. On the ensuing possession, Lee was picked for the third time of the game. This one costlier than the rest, when Arthur Jaffee took it 24 yards back for a Colorado score, giving them a 28-14 lead. Nebraska would score on their next possession on a 4 yard Dontrayevou Robinson 4 yard run. Colorado would hang on from there, picking up a couple first downs and leaving Nebraska with only 20 seconds and no timeouts to travel 91 yards for the equalizer.

    Colorado was led by senior corner Jalil Brown's 2 interceptions, which gives him a new single season school record of 8. Tyler Hansen finished 14 for 29 with 270 yards, a touchdown, and 2 picks. Hildreth led the way on the ground with 129 yards on 19 carries and a touchdown.

    Colorado finishes the season at 6-6 (5-3) after starting the year 1-4 (0-1). They now wait to see if they will be invited to a bowl game.

    Texas Bowl

    Colorado 17
    Indiana 14

    The Colorado Buffalos and the Indiana Hoosiers met in Houston tonight for a Big 12-Big 10 matchup in the Texas Bowl. Both teams came into the game with 6-6 records and have played inconsistent football all year. Colorado came in riding a 3 game winning streak that included a season finale win in Lincoln over Nebraska to secure their spot in a bowl game.

    Colorado threw the first punch when Tyler Hansen hit tight end Ryan Deehan for a 12 yard scoring strike. Two second half Indiana field goals made the score 7-6 at the break. Sloppy play and turnovers were the highlights from the first half. Colorado drew blood again in the third quarter on a 19 yard touchdown pass from Hansen to Will Jefferson. With the score 14-6 in favor of Colorado, they had a chance to put the game away in the fourth quarter but missed a short field goal. Indiana would take advantage, driving the length of the field and scoring on a 13 yard pass from Ben Chappel to Paul Phillips. Indiana converted the 2 point try to tie the game at 14. Colorado would answer with a drive of its own, marching down the field and getting a game winning field goal from Aric Goodman. Redemption for Goodman and a winning season for the Buffalos.

    Plenty to build on for Colorado heading into next year. They won't be bit by the graduation bug very hard and return a lot of key players. It should be interesting to see what they can do in 2011.

    Hansen finished the game completing 11 of 18 passes for 256 yards and 2 touchdowns but was picked (wice. Quentin Hildreth carried 20 times for 56 yards. Deehan led Colorado recievers with 4 catches for 65 yards and a score.
