In allowing over 40 points in a fifth consecutive game, the Colorado defense collapsed after a decent showing in the first half.

  — Preseason – 2003 — In 2002, the Colorado Buffaloes rallied from a 1-2 start to the season to claim a second consecutive Big 12 North Division title. In 2003, the Buffs would have to make a comeback of another sort. The offense would sport a completely new look, and would be depending upon the CU defense to steady the Buffs’ ship through a tough preseason schedule. On offense, only three starters returned. Gone were All-American running back Chris Brown, four-fifths of the starting offensive line, and two of Brown’s backfield …

  — November 4th – at Missouri           Colorado 28, Missouri 18 — On the 10th anniversary of the “fifth-down” game, there was little national attention directed at the Colorado/Missouri game. Both teams were 2-6, and, for the second week in a row, Colorado was facing an embattled head coach, this time in Missouri’s Larry Smith. For the second week in a row, the Buffs did little to aid the cause of the opposing coach, defeating the Tigers 28-18. Colorado took control early.
