— November 21st – Boulder          No. 11 Colorado 31, Iowa State 10 — Kordell Stewart threw for three touchdowns and 279 yards as the Buffs raced out to a 28-3 halftime lead before cruising to a 31-10 win over Iowa State. The Buffs put the Cyclones on notice early that Colorado would not fall victim to the complacency which had cost the Cornhuskers in a 19-10 upset in Ames the week before.  Linebacker Chad Brown recovered a fumble by Iowa State fullback Chris Ulrich on the Cyclones’ first possession.  On …

  — November 7th – Boulder          No. 16 Colorado 28, Oklahoma State 0 — Oklahoma State was a much improved team in 1992.  Rebounding from a disastrous 0-10-1 1991 campaign, the Cowboys were a respectable 4-4 coming into Boulder, including conference wins over Missouri and Iowa State.  But the Cowboys were the Buffs’ Homecoming opponent for a reason. In 1992, Oklahoma State played its role of sacrificial lamb well, succumbing to the Buffs, 28-0. Colorado posted a touchdown in each quarter, the first coming on a …

  October 17th – Boulder            No. 7 Colorado 24, Oklahoma 24 In 1952, the Colorado Buffaloes tied mighty Oklahoma 21-21 to mar an otherwise perfect conference run of the Bud Wilkinson Sooners of 1948-57 (a 57-0-1 streak). Forty years later, the Buffs salvaged a 24-24 tie against a 3-2 Sooner squad led by 4th-year head coach Gary Gibbs.  Colorado managed to pull out the tie only by scoring 10 points in the final 4:27 of the game. Freshman quarterback Koy Detmer, making his debut as a starter, made quite an …

  September 26th – Boulder          #10 Colorado 28, Iowa 12 Surviving the Minnesota game allowed Colorado to return to the top ten in the polls for the first time since finishing ranked No. 1 at the end of the 1990 season.  Colorado’s final non-conference opponent for the 1992 season was the Iowa Hawkeyes in Boulder.  The Hawkeyes had begun the year ranked 16th in the nation, but had fallen out of the polls after succumbing to North Carolina State and co-defending National Champion Miami before rebounding against Iowa State.  Iowa …

— September 12th – at Baylor          No. 12 Colorado 57, Baylor 38 — Heading off to Waco for the second game of the 1992 season, there was no chance Colorado was going to take the Baylor Bears lightly. Baylor had defeated the Buffs 16-14 at Folsom Field in 1991, led by quarterback J.J. Joe’s 301 yards of total offense. Traveling to Waco for only the third time in school history, Colorado exacted a measure of revenge for the 1991 upset in routing the Bears, 57-38.  Kordell …

  — November 23rd – at Iowa State            No. 15 Colorado 17, Iowa State 14 — Running back Lamont Warren capped the most successful freshman rushing season in Colorado history with a 168-yard performance against Iowa State in a 17-14 Colorado win.  Warren sprinted 74 yards for one score and carried the load on a ten-play, 80-yard drive as Colorado took the lead for good in the third quarter. Lamont Warren finished the 1991 season with 830 rushing yards, a Colorado freshman record. The game conditions in Ames, Iowa, were horrendous, marking the …

— November 16th – Boulder          No. 16 Colorado 30, Kansas 24 — The Kansas Jayhawks, despite a lopsided 59-23 loss to Nebraska the weekend before, still harbored hopes of post-season play heading into the Colorado game.  Kansas was 5-4 on the year, including shutout wins over Iowa State (41-0) and Oklahoma State (31-0).  The Kansas/Oklahoma State score, if not the Buffs’ overall performance in the 16-12 nail-biter against the Cowboys, should have been to focus Colorado on the task at hand. Once again, though, the Buffs were in a dogfight …

  — November 9th – at Oklahoma State           No. 14 Colorado 16, Oklahoma State 12 — The Oklahoma State Cowboys entered their 1991 game against Colorado with an 0-7-1 overall record, having managed only a 6-6 tie against equally hapless Iowa State.  There was little for the Cowboys to play for in November other than pride. The Colorado Buffaloes, meanwhile, still had the chance at a third straight Big Eight title. It would be fair to expect, then, for the Buffs to roll to a blowout win over the Cowboys. Not so. Senior wide receiver …

  — October 26th – at Kansas State          No. 16 Colorado 10, Kansas State 0 — The 1991 Kansas State team was different from the Wildcat teams which Big Eight teams had grown accustomed to playing. Third year coach Bill Snyder was building a program in Manhattan.  The joke of the conference throughout much of the ‘1980’s (and, in all honesty, for a number of decades), Snyder had taken a woeful team over in 1989, going 1-10 in first campaign.  The second team improved to 5-6, and in 1991 the Wildcats were …

— October 19th – at Oklahoma          No. 22 Colorado 34, No. 12 Oklahoma 17 — Colorado put together a pair of 99-yard touchdown drives on its way to a 34-17 upset of 12th-ranked Oklahoma.  In scoring the most points ever against the Sooners in Norman, the Buffs out-gained the Sooners 371 yards to 251.  Darian Hagan accounted for 211 yards of total offense on the day, including 10-of-15 passing for 150 yards and three touchdowns. After witnessing Oklahoma put up a score on their first possession, Colorado scored 20 unanswered first …

Missouri – Fear Factor

— October 12th – Boulder           No. 25 Colorado 55, Missouri 7 — There is nothing like a loss to bring out the frustrations of a good team. After being surprised by Baylor in the second game of the season, Colorado had responded with a 58-0 rout of Minnesota. On the heels of the disappointing setback at Stanford in game four, the Buffs again bounced back, this time with a 55-7 mauling of Missouri. In 101 years of football, Colorado had accumulated over 600 yards in total offense only seven times. Now, the Buffs surpassed …

—  September 28th – at Stanford           Stanford 28, No. 17 Colorado 21 — “Touchdown” Tommy Vardell lived up to his nickname, scoring three touchdowns in leading Stanford to a 28-21 upset of 17th-ranked Colorado. Vardell rushed for 114 yards, also contributing 97 yards receiving, in posting almost as many total yards as the entire Buff offense. On the day, Stanford out-gained Colorado, 485-270, holding the Buffs to their lowest offensive output in two years. Stanford took a 7-0 lead on the game’s first drive on a Vardell one-yard run. In …
