The Cyclones came to Boulder for the 1998 home finale winless in Big 12 action. The Buffs desperately needed a win to keep their bowl hopes alive, and Iowa State was the perfect opponent. Oft-injured senior tailback Marlon Barnes rushed for a career-high 237 yards …

— September 4th – Boulder           No. 14 Colorado 27, Texas 6 — The Texas Longhorns entered the 1989 season sailing in unfamiliar waters.
