— 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, …

  — November 21st – Boulder          No. 11 Colorado 31, Iowa State 10 — Kordell Stewart threw for three touchdowns and 279 yards as the Buffs raced out to a 28-3 halftime lead before cruising to a 31-10 win over Iowa State. The Buffs put the Cyclones on notice early that Colorado would not fall victim to the complacency which had cost the Cornhuskers in a 19-10 upset in Ames the week before.  Linebacker Chad Brown recovered a fumble by Iowa State fullback Chris Ulrich on the Cyclones’ first possession.  …

  — November 14th – at Kansas          No. 13 Colorado 25, No.20 Kansas 18 — The Kansas Jayhawks returned home to Lawrence to face the Buffs after being humbled by Nebraska, 49-7.  It was the Jayhawks’ first conference loss after averaging 33 points per game in accumulating four Big Eight wins.  With the Buffs’ falling to the Cornhuskers by an equally lopsided score the week before, the Buffs were not in a position to take the Jayhawks lightly. An estimated crowd of 43,000, the largest crowd to witness a Colorado/Kansas game in Lawrence since …

  September 26th – Boulder          #10 Colorado 28, Iowa 12 Surviving the Minnesota game allowed Colorado to return to the top ten in the polls for the first time since finishing ranked No. 1 at the end of the 1990 season.  Colorado’s final non-conference opponent for the 1992 season was the Iowa Hawkeyes in Boulder.  The Hawkeyes had begun the year ranked 16th in the nation, but had fallen out of the polls after succumbing to North Carolina State and co-defending National Champion Miami before rebounding against Iowa State.  Iowa …

  — 1992 -“Air” Bill — National and Big Eight Recap – 1992 The 1992 college football season was dominated by the Miami Hurricanes. That is to say, at least Miami dominated all the way up to its National Championship showdown against Alabama in the Sugar Bowl.  There, the Crimson Tide throttled Miami, 34-13, to win Alabama’s sixth national title, the first for head coach Gene Stallings.  Alabama finished the season 13-0, claiming the nation’s first undisputed title since 1979. Miami’s quarterback Gino Toretta, despite having a quarterback rating of …

  — September 21st – Boulder           No. 19 Colorado 58, Minnesota 0 — The Minnesota Golden Gophers came to Boulder 1-0 on the young season, hoping to build on their 6-5 effort from 1990.

In all, Colorado amassed 612 yards of total offense, surpassing the 600-yard mark for only the eighth time in school history. Leading the onslaught was quarterback Darian Hagan, who passed for two touchdowns, connecting on 7-of-8 …

— National and Big Eight recap – 1991 — For the second consecutive year – after occurring only twice in the past twenty – the college football season ended with a split national championship.

Miami was forced to share the limelight, however, with the Washington Huskies, who also went 12-0.

— September 15th – at Illinois           No. 21 Illinois 23, No. 9 Colorado 22 — Howard Griffith scored from a yard out with 1:18 to play to give the Fighting Illini a 23-22 win over Colorado. 21st-ranked Illinois exacted a measure of revenge for the 38-7 pasting the Buffs had put on the Illini in 1989, pulling out the win on a 10-play, 63-yard drive to erase a 22-17 deficit. Quarterback Jason Verduzco did what his famed predecessor, Jeff George, could not – he out-performed the Colorado defense. Verduzco completed 23-of-29 …

  — September 6th – Boulder           No. 6 Colorado 21, Stanford 17 — Stanford head coach Dennis Green was 3-8 in his first year in Palo Alto in 1989, which may have given CU fans a false sense of security heading into CU’s 1990 home opener. Instead of being an easy mark, Stanford came to Boulder ready to play. Stanford raced to a 14-0 first quarter lead before a stunned Folsom Field crowd of 50,669. It took the entire game for Colorado to right the ship, pulling out a 21-17 …
