— September 18th – at Stanford           No. 20 Stanford 41, No.7 Colorado 37 — Led by senior quarterback Steve Stenstrom, the Stanford Cardinal rallied for 10 points in the last four minutes of the game to snatch a 41-37 win over a shocked Colorado Buffalo squad.

Stenstrom, who would post 382 yards and five touchdowns passing on the evening, hit Tony Cline in […]

  October 24th – Boulder           No. 9 Colorado 54, Kansas State 7 The 9th-ranked Buffs controlled an entire game for the first time in 1992, dominating Kansas State 54-7.  Colorado scored early and often, raising the home team total on the scoreboard on seven of its first 11 possessions in cruising to a 30-0 halftime lead before a sold-out Folsom Field crowd of 52,235.  The Wildcats, with a respectable 3-2 record coming into Boulder, left town without an offensive touchdown, scoring only on a an interception return after the game was […]

  October 17th – Boulder            No. 7 Colorado 24, Oklahoma 24 In 1952, the Colorado Buffaloes tied mighty Oklahoma 21-21 to mar an otherwise perfect conference run of the Bud Wilkinson Sooners of 1948-57 (a 57-0-1 streak). Forty years later, the Buffs salvaged a 24-24 tie against a 3-2 Sooner squad led by 4th-year head coach Gary Gibbs.  Colorado managed to pull out the tie only by scoring 10 points in the final 4:27 of the game. Freshman quarterback Koy Detmer, making his debut as a starter, made quite an […]

  — October 27th – Boulder           No. 10 Colorado 32, No. 22 Oklahoma 23 — Like the Buffs, the Oklahoma entered the 1990 campaign with high hopes. Five weeks into the season, the Sooners seemed to be well on their way to realizing their dreams. Oklahoma took a 5-0 record and a No. 4 national ranking to play Texas in Dallas, only to be turned away by the unranked Longhorns, 14-13. The loss was hard to take, but not nearly as debilitating as the loss the next week to Iowa […]

— Prelude to the 1990 Orange Bowl … Travel Plans — When I was an undergrad at Colorado, a number of my friends and I made a pact: If Colorado ever made it to the Orange Bowl as Big Eight Champions, we would go to the game. No matter when, no matter our circumstances, we would find a way to get there.  At the time, with the Buffs posting a series of records like 1-10, 2-8-1, and 3-8, there seemed to be little substance to the pledge. A few short […]

—  November 4th – Boulder         No. 2 Colorado 27, No. 3 Nebraska 21 — Jim Nantz, the play-by-play announcer for CBS, introduced the Colorado/Nebraska game to the nation as follows: “Quite simply, there has never been a bigger game in Colorado’s 100-year history than this game today.” After falling behind early, the Colorado Buffaloes played like champions, prevailing over Nebraska, 27-21, taking control of the Big Eight race to the Orange Bowl, and taking dead aim at a national championship. The game began ominously for the Buffs.  In each of […]

— October 7th – Boulder            No. 3 Colorado 49, Missouri 3 — Missouri head coach Bob Stull spent ten years as an assistant to Washington head coach Don James before taking over for the Tigers in 1989.  “It’s amazing to see they scored (45) against the Huskies out there”, said Stull the week before the Colorado/Missouri game.  “They’re extremely strong this year.” It took all of 34 seconds that Saturday for Stull and his Tigers to discover just how strong. On the first play of the game, Colorado quarterback Darian Hagan […]
