Colorado drove 71 yards on its first drive of the game against Kansas State, taking a 6-3 first quarter lead. The remainder of the game, however, the Buffs’ offense generated only 173 yards, turning the ball over four times in falling to the Wildcats, 20-6.

Playing with an interim staff and an uncertain future, the CU defense kept the Buffs in the game throughout, with Clemson scoring the game-clinching touchdown with 1:38 to play. The game went into the record books as a Gary Barnett coached squad, but the former coach …


— December 8, 2005 Gary Barnett Out as Colorado Head Coach — December 16, 2005 Dan Hawkins In as Colorado Head Coach — The rumors had been swirling since the end of the Texas game. A contract extension for Colorado head coach Gary Barnett, thought to be a virtual done deal just weeks earlier, was now a virtual impossibility. An extension and a raise for a coach whose team had been embarrassed on national television two weeks in a row? An extension for a coach whose teams had been mired …
