— October 1st – at Colorado State           Colorado 27, Colorado State 23 — For the third straight game, Colorado rallied from a fourth quarter deficit to pull out a win, this time a 27-23 win over Colorado State in Fort Collins. Hosting the Buffs for only the second time since 1957, the Rams were not gracious to their guests, running out to a 13-0 lead early in the second quarter. It took a 58-yard interception return for a touchdown by senior Buff linebacker Don DeLuzio to put the Buffs on the …

 —  September 6th – Boulder          Colorado State 23, Colorado 7 — All signs pointed toward a victory for Colorado in their opener against Colorado State. Colorado had gone 4-0 at home in 1985 against unranked opponents.  Colorado State was predicted to be a good team in 1986, having gone 5-7 in 1985, but the Rams were not considered a threat to BYU’s dominance in the Western Athletic Conference, and was certainly was not a Top 20 team.  What was more, the Buffs came into the game against the Rams with …

— November 23rd – Boulder           Colorado 30, Kansas State 0 — In 1984, Colorado limped into its finale against Kansas State. Demoralized, cold, and playing before just 17,600 Wildcat fans, the Buffs had nothing to play for, and it showed. The resulting 38-6 humiliation was a fitting end to a 1-10 disaster. What a difference a year makes. The weather was not much better (20 degrees for the 11:00 a.m. kickoff), and the smallest home crowd since the 1983 finale against the same Kansas State squad (28,210 paid, 20,777 actual), …

— October 12th – Boulder           Colorado 38, Missouri 7 — After a two week layoff to contemplate their 3-1 record, Colorado played its homecoming game against the Missouri Tigers. For a change, Homecoming played out the way it was supposed to for the Buffs, with the home team beating up against an inferior opponent. True, Colorado had won its homecoming game against Iowa State in 1984, but that came in the last minute, and proved to be the Buffs only win of the year. In 1985, all cylinders were clicking in …

— October 13th – Boulder           Colorado 23, Iowa State 21 — Only 36,762 came out for Colorado’s Homecoming game against Iowa State. Who could blame the fans for their apathy? The game wasn’t much of a draw. The Buffs were 0-5. The Cyclones were 2-3, with both wins coming over inferior opponents (West Texas State and Drake). Unbeknownst to the faithful, however, as they filed into Folsom on the 55-degree, Chamber of Commerce postcard fall day, it would be the Buffs’ most exciting game of the year. The game started as ominously for …

— Cautious Optimism — The 1984 season presented an excellent opportunity for third-year coach Bill McCartney to demonstrate that the building process was continuing. Bill McCartney’s inaugural squad, consisting of nary a single player recruited by McCartney, had finished 2-8-1. In 1983, the mark had improved to 4-7. Now, with two full seasons under his belt, and two recruiting classes to call his own, whispers of a winning season were heard around campus. Not Orange Bowl, mind you. No one was oblivious to the fact that there were top ten teams residing in Lincoln …
