California – Blown Away

// Nov 16 -

Sefo Liufau threw for a career-high 364 yards and Paul Richardson set a team record for receiving yards in a season to help Colorado snap a 14-game conference losing streak by beating slumping California 41-24 on a windy Saturday in Boulder.

Wind gusts of up to 43 mph buffeted the two team struggling to post their first Pac-12 conference victory of the season. In the end, Colorado had 485 yards of total offense, with Liufau finding Richardson and Nelson Spruce for 140 receiving yards apiece. Christian Powell added 60 rushing yards and a touchdown as the Buffs were able to defeat a conference foe at home for the first time in two full years.


Officially, the 38,252 who attended Colorado’s 41-24 victory over Cal endured halftime temperatures in the mid-40’s, with winds “gusting 37 to 43 mph”.

True, wind gusts of 40 miles per hour or more are not all that uncommon in Boulder.

But CU picking up conference wins?

Now that’s a rarity.

For the first time in two full years, Colorado won a Pac-12 game at home. With a 41-27 victory over Cal, the Buffs finally brought to an end a 14-game conference losing streak – a streak six games longer than any similar bouts with futility in school history.

Cal at CU does not have the pull of Oregon/Stanford, but for the Bears and the Buffs, it’s just as important
