  — December 25th – Aloha Bowl, Honolulu, Hawaii          No. 17 Colorado 41, No. 25 Fresno State 30 — While the Buffs found no snow on the ground on Christmas Day, 1993, they did find presents there. Colorado’s defense forced four Fresno State fumbles, converting all four turnovers into points as the Buffs ran away from the Bulldogs, 41-30, to win the 12th-annual Aloha Bowl. Sophomore tailback Rashaan Salaam rushed for 135 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Buffs’ offense, while the depleted Colorado secondary withstood 523 yards passing by Fresno […]

  November 20th – @ Iowa State           #18 Colorado 21, Iowa State 16 Despite decent weather conditions for late November (41 degrees at kickoff, with no precipitation), only 23,797 bothered to show up to cheer for the hometown Cyclones (3-7) take on the 18th-ranked Buffaloes. That was too bad for Iowa State players, as the home team almost pulled off the upset. Only after defensive lineman Kerry Hicks and cornerback Chris Hudson teamed up to tackle running back Calvin Branch for a fourth down loss with 1:35 left in the game […]

  November 13th – Boulder           #21 Colorado 38, Kansas 14 Despite their 4-6 record (2-3 in the Big Eight), the 1993 Kansas Jayhawks could not be overlooked. While the Buffs were putting the finishing touches on their 31-14 win over Oklahoma State, the Jayhawks were putting a major scare into the 4th-ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers. With 52 seconds remaining, Kansas tailback June Henley scored from a yard out to bring the Jayhawks to within a point at 21-20. Rather than play for the tie, Kansas head coach Glen Mason went for the win. Unfortunately […]

  — November 7th – at Oklahoma State        No. 23 Colorado 31, Oklahoma State 14 — Overcoming a lackluster effort against Nebraska, quarterback Kordell Stewart responded with a record-setting performance as Colorado dominated Oklahoma State, 31-14. Stewart, who threw three interceptions against the Cornhuskers (after throwing only two all season), and who had finished with only eight completions against Nebraska, bombed the Cowboys for a season-high 328 yards and three touchdowns. In torching Oklahoma State, Stewart passed Steve Vogel (1981-84) as Colorado’s all-time passing leader. After spotting Oklahoma […]

  — October 30th – Boulder           No. 6 Nebraska 21, No. 20 Colorado 17 — For the first 14 minutes of the 1993 Colorado/Nebraska game, only one team played like it had something to prove – Nebraska. The Cornhuskers, 7-0, 3-0 in conference play and ranked 6th in the nation, were nonetheless 1-2-1 against Colorado since 1989.

  October 9th – Boulder           #20 Colorado 30, Missouri 18 The Missouri Tigers presented themselves to the Buffs as the perfect opponent to rebound from a two game losing streak. Missouri was 1-2-1 on the 1993 season, including an embarrassing loss to Texas A & M (73-0) and a 10-10 tie to lowly SMU. The Buffs had a week to re-group and regain focus on the conference schedule. After a sometimes impressive, sometimes lethargic, performance, Colorado was able to secure a 30-18 win. The Buffs’ defense, earning much of the […]
