— October 20th – at Kansas           No. 14 Colorado 41, Kansas 10 — Colorado put together a complete game for the first time all season, scoring on its first drive on the way to a 17-0 first quarter lead and a 41-10 win over 1-4-1 Kansas.

—  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 …

  — November 11th – at Oklahoma State          No. 2 Colorado 41, Oklahoma State 17 — What was supposed to be a coronation of the new Big Eight champions appeared to be anything but as the Oklahoma State Cowboys came to play against the emotionally drained Buffaloes. With a 53-yard scoring strike from quarterback Mike Gundy to wide receiver Curtis Mayfield to open the second quarter, Oklahoma State opened up a 10-0 lead against the lethargic Buffs.  This team was not to be denied, however, as Colorado stormed back with …

—  November 4th – Boulder         No. 2 Colorado 27, No. 3 Nebraska 21 — Jim Nantz, the play-by-play announcer for CBS, introduced the Colorado/Nebraska game to the nation as follows: “Quite simply, there has never been a bigger game in Colorado’s 100-year history than this game today.” After falling behind early, the Colorado Buffaloes played like champions, prevailing over Nebraska, 27-21, taking control of the Big Eight race to the Orange Bowl, and taking dead aim at a national championship. The game began ominously for the Buffs.  In each of …

— 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 …
