Arizona 38, Colorado 31

//posted 10.18.2015

Arizona used two drives of over 90 yards to tie the game and then take the lead in the fourth quarter, holding on for a 38-31 over Colorado to spoil the Buffs’ homecoming. Wildcat running back Jared Baker went for a career-high 207 yards as Arizona went for 616 total yards of total offense.

The Buffs finished with 468 yards of total offense of their own, and even had the advantage in total yards in the third quarter before going on a drought of five straight punts to allow Arizona to take control of the game. Sefo Liufau went 27-for-42 for 340 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions, but again failed to make connections in crucial situations.

Wide receiver Shay Fields had eight catches for 168 yards and two touchdowns, but had six of those catches for 131 yards in the first half before being shut out in the second half until the Buffs were down by two scores. Phillip Lindsay had 23 carries for 91 yards, but, as was the case with Fields, was largely unused/ineffective in the second half when the Buffs were trying to maintain or even expand their 24-17 lead.

The loss dropped CU to 3-4, 0-3, representing the Buffs’ 14th consecutive conference loss, tying a school record and extending the longest current such streak in the Football Bowl Subdivision.
