Colorado went almost twenty full seasons without being shut out, scoring in every game played between November 12, 1988, and October 25, 2008.

The Buffs under Dan Hawkins lost the record streak, one of the top ten in NCAA history, with a 58-0 humiliation at Columbia, Missouri. Two years later, Colorado was shut out again, again in Columbia, Missouri, this time by the score of 26-0. The fact that the score was 32 points closer was of little consolation, as Colorado fell to 3-2, 0-1 in its final season in Big 12 play.

The game began almost as ominously as had the first 2010 road game, a 52-7 thrashing at the hands of the Cal Bears.

Missouri returned the opening kickoff to its own 41-yard line, but the Colorado defense was up to the first challenge posed by the Buffs’ poor special teams play, holding the Tigers to a three-and-out and a punt. Unfortunately for Colorado fans, the Trey Barrow punt went out-of-bounds at the Colorado two yard line. Just had been the case againt Cal, the Buffs’ first drive of the game started inside their own five yard line.

— September 10th – at Boulder           Colorado 39, New Mexico State 0 — Colorado shut out an opponent for the first time since 2002 in routing New Mexico State in Boulder, 39-0. The game, kicking off at 8:10 p.m., was at the time the latest ever for Colorado at Folsom Field, but the game was out of reach early enough for most Buff fans to get a good night’s sleep. Joel Klatt passed for 186 yards and two touchdowns, and running back Lawrence Vickers scored three times in leading the Buffs over …

  — September 19th – Boulder           No. 15 Colorado 25, Utah State 6 — If Colorado’s 29-21 win over Fresno State the week before was a “wake up call”, then the Buffs’ 25-6 victory over Utah State was an indication that the team had apparently hit the snooze button. Penalties and injuries marred an otherwise excellent defensive performance as the Buffs raised their season record to 3-0 with a 25-6 victory over Utah State. Mike Moschetti, slowed by torn cartilage in his rib cage suffered in the Fresno State game, …

— November 12th – at Kansas                                   No. 7 Colorado 51, Kansas 26 — Kordell Stewart, who had the previous week become the first player in Big Eight history to pass for 6,000 yards and rush for 1,000 yards in a career, piled up 249 yards of total offense against the Jayhawks as the Buffs rolled to an easy 51-26 win. Rashaan Salaam came into the final road game of the season on the brink of taking the leap from great to all-time legend. He needed only 65 rush yards and …

— 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 …

— Colorado v. Alabama – 1991 Blockbuster Bowl — The 1991 season was a mixed bag for Colorado and its fans. An 8-2-1 regular season record, along with a share of a third consecutive Big Eight title, were certainly nothing to be ashamed of. Still, after posting an 11-1 record in 1989 and an 11-1-1 record in 1990, an eight win season seemed like a letdown to many in the Buff Nation. Still, there were some memorable games in 1991, including a big 34-17 win over Oklahoma in Norman (when the Buffs …

— Buffs and the Cowboys — The 1991 Colorado/Wyoming game would be the 25th meeting between the two neighbors, but the first in the series since 1982. Colorado held a commanding 22-2-1 edge in the rivalry, but one of the two losses was the 24-10 setback in 1982, Bill McCartney’s first year as head coach at Colorado. The Cowboys in 1990 had opened the season with a run of nine consecutive wins (and a No. 19 national ranking) before succumbing to four consecutive losses to end the year, including a 17-15 setback to …

— November 18th – at Kansas State          No. 2 Colorado 59, Kansas State 11 — Having learned their lesson against Oklahoma State, the Colorado Buffaloes did not allow Kansas State to open up strong.  Instead, the Buffs dominated from beginning to end, rolling up the most points by a Colorado team in 20 years, mauling Kansas State, 59-11. J.J. Flannigan rushed for a career-high 246 yards and four touchdowns as Colorado rushed for 518 yards.  The defense also contributed, holding Kansas State without a first down and only eight (eight!) yards …

— October 28th – at Oklahoma          No. 3 Colorado 20, Oklahoma 3 — Colorado used a stifling defense and just enough offense to take a 20-3 decision over Oklahoma in one of the biggest wins in Colorado football history. Raising its season record to 8-0 for the first time in sixty-two years, the Buffs gave notice to future opponents that its defense was just as good as its offense.  Colorado held the Sooners to only 248 yards of total offense, including completions on only three-of-22 passes in the stiff afternoon …
