  September 13th – at Michigan                     No. 14 Michigan 27,  No. 8 Colorado 3 Hail, No! During the week leading up to the rubber game of the three-game match between Colorado and Michigan, much was made of the first two games in the series.

— September 16th – Boulder          No.9 Colorado 66, Northeast Louisiana 14 — Class: Get out a fresh piece of paper. It’s time to start noting all of the new school records set by the Buffs in mauling the Indians of Northeast Louisiana (now Louisiana-Monroe), 66-14.  The point total for the game set a modern record, besting by one the 65 points put up against Arizona back in 1958. Prior to the Northeast Louisiana “contest”, the highest total offensive output ever by a Buff team in CU football history was 676 …
