Minnesota 30, Colorado 0

Colorado put on an offensive debacle for the record books, falling at home to Minnesota, 30-0. In extending its scoreless streak to seven quarters, the Buff offense managed only 63 yards of total offense … 82 yards passing and … wait for it … minus-19 yards rushing. The Buffs were outgained by the Gophers, 443 yards to 63, had only seven first downs, and held the ball for only 19:47 of game clock (to 40:13 for Minnesota).

If it not for a poor kicking performance by the Gophers (two missed field goals and a missed extra point), the score would have been even worse. Minnesota was led by running back Treyson Potts, who had 121 yards rushing on 26 carries, scoring three touchdowns. Quarterback Tanner Morgan was an efficient 11-for-17 for 161 yards and a touchdown.

The offensive Colorado “offense” was “led” by an ineffective Brendon Lewis, who was 8-for-16 passing for all of 55 yards. When he wasn’t holding the ball instead of throwing, he was harassed into multiple sacks … by a defense which came into the game with exactly zero sacks in its first two games.

“We ended up having a very difficult game and not looking very good”, said CU head coach Karl Dorrell. “You don’t enjoy looking at those opportunities when they come up and it’s unfortunate that is something that happened this Saturday. That was a complete beatdown”.

The 63 yards on offense was the eighth-lowest in school history (the fewest since 46 against Oklahoma in the 2004 Big 12 title game at Kansas City). It was the third-lowest output in a home game (51 vs. Nebraska in 1964, 61 vs. USC in 2002).

“We got a lot of work to do”, said Dorrell. “I’m not blaming the players. It’s going to be us coaches. We’ve got to get the same page. I’ve been through this scenario many times before in other places that I’ve coached. We can overcome it, we can get back, but it’s going to take a great deal of work”.
