— November 13th – Boulder          Colorado 38, Kansas State 31 — The stakes were not as high.  It was not  No. 7 Colorado versus No. 4 Michigan in front of 106,427 fans and a national television audience.

And – importantly to the Buff Nation – the results were the same. Ten years after Kordell Stewart hit Michael Westbrook for a 64-yard touchdown and a 27-26 win over …

—  October 16th  – Boulder           Colorado 19, Iowa State 14 — There were certainly more attractive games on the Big 12 slate for the weekend of October 16th, as Missouri (4-1,2-0) was playing at No. 9 Texas, No. 2 Oklahoma was on the road against a desperate Kansas State squad, and No. 16 Oklahoma State hosted No. 23 Texas A&M. Iowa State (2-3, 0-2) at Colorado (3-2, 0-2) drew little national attention. Who knew the game would be for the Big 12 North title? … Colorado kicker Mason Crosby set several Buff …
