Colorado held the lead for three quarters of the game, but wore down in the end, surrendering the winning touchdown with 2:41 to play, falling to No. 5 Texas A&M, 10-7. The Buff defense held the Aggie offense to 1-for-10 on third downs through the third quarter, but A&M went 7-for-10 on third downs the remainder of the game, culminating in a game-winning 11-play, 77-yard drive to pull out the victory.

The Colorado defense held Texas A&M, which had 595 yards in their opener, to 289 total yards (with 145 of those yards coming in the decisive fourth quarter). The Buff offense, though, mustered only 260 yards of total offense, with only 54 of those yards coming after the break. Both teams had only 14 first downs (A&M had 29 in its opener), with the only stat line of any solace being CU’s two penalties for 17 yards (a week after posting 12 penalties for 118 yards against Northern Colorado in Week One).

Brendon Lewis went 13-for-25 for 89 yards passing, also leading the team in rushing, with 76 yards on nine carries. Jarek Broussard had 51 yards on 12 carries, scoring CU’s lone touchdown on a two-yard run late in the first quarter.

“We had opportunities in the first and second half and we didn’t do what we should have done,” Dorrell said. “We didn’t do well enough offensively. Defensively I thought they played their butts off. We just have to get better. I don’t make excuses. For us to be the team we need to be, we must get better in a heartbeat.”
