1990 – The Fifth Down game … One of the most infamous games in CU history, the Buffs score on the final play of the game against Missouri … Video of the game’s final drive (count the number of slips by CU players on the Faurot Field turf) … Player(s) No. 30: CU’s long list of great offensive linemen …

No. 2 Oregon 70, Colorado 14

//posted 10.28.2012

Oregon, the No. 2 team in the country, was a 47-point favorite at home over hapless Colorado. The line was an embarrassment for the CU program, but not half as embarrassing as the fact that the Ducks covered … by halftime.

Oregon ran through, around, and over the Colorado defense, scoring touchdowns on all seven first half possessions en route to a 56-0 halftime lead and 70-14 rout. The Ducks amassed a ridiculous 425 yards rushing, and 617 yards of total offense, holding the inept Buff offense to 245 yards of total offense. The game was so out of hand that Oregon’s backup quarterback, Bryan Bennett, out-scored the Colorado offense, three touchdowns to two.


Colorado 17, Utah 14

//posted 11.27.2011

Colorado used an almost perfect first half to take the lead, and then played just well enough in the second half to hold the lead, taking the first “Rumble in the Rockies” against Utah, 17-14.

Utah junior kicker Coleman Petersen, the Pac-12 Player-of-the-Week for his three-for-three performance in a 30-27 overtime victory over Washington State, had a chance to tie the game with a 48-yard kick, but the effort went wide and short, giving Colorado the hard-earned victory.

The road win, as every Buff fan could recite in his sleep, was the first for Colorado since 2007. The school-record streak of 23 road losses (24 counting the 2007 Independence Bowl) finally came to an end before a crowd of 45,026 in Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City.

Colorado was shutout by Hawai’i in first half for second straight year. Unlike the 2010 game, however, there was no second half comeback as the Buffs fall to the Rainbow Warriors in the head coaching debut for Jon Embree …


Texas A&M notifies Big 12 of “Conference Exploration” … Big 12 “poised to move aggressively with options”


  — November 19th – Boulder                       No. 7 Colorado 41, Iowa State 20 — A game between a 9-1 team and an 0-9-1 to finish off the regular season would normally not bear much attention.  The 41-20 final score, after the Buffs nursed a 20-13 lead into the fourth quarter, would not have merited much notice nationally. For local writers, though, the game could presented a year’s worth of headlines: “Christian Fauria snares six catches; becomes Big Eight all-time tight end reception leader” would have been apropos; “CU posts 576 …


  — November 20th – at Iowa State           No. 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 in Ames to cheer for the hometown Cyclones (3-7) as they took 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 …


— Scouting the Nation — As the summer of 1993 wound down, (a great summer for me and my lady, thank you very much) the pre-season magazines appeared. There was little or no consensus as to which team would emerge from the upcoming season ranked No. 1 on January 1, 1994. Florida State received much of the ink, but Alabama was also getting support for a repeat of its 1992 National Championship. When the pre-season Associated Press poll came out, five different teams received first-place votes. Included with Florida State, …


— September 5th –Boulder          No. 12 Colorado 37, Colorado State 17 — The 1992 season-opener had all the makings of a disaster. The Colorado/Colorado State game was the renewal of an intra-state rivalry, which always meant a hard-fought game.  In addition, the Buffs were risking state and national embarrassment if their new offense failed to produce against a Colorado State squad which had stumbled to a 3-8 record in 1991. To the relief of many Buff fans, though, the Colorado offense did not disappoint.  Head Coach …
