—  November 8th – Boulder           Colorado 17, Kansas 10 — In a reverse from the Oklahoma State game the week before, Colorado played well early, then hung on late to post a 17-10 win over Kansas. Rolling to a 17-0 second quarter lead, the Buffs scored on a one yard run by junior halfback Mike Marquez, a 24-yard field goal by Dave DeLine, and a 34-yard reverse by freshman split end Jeff Campbell.  The latter score was a reprise of the two reverses Campbell ran so successfully in the Nebraska game. …

—  October 18th – Boulder          Colorado 31, Iowa State 3 — For the second week in a row, Colorado put together an excellent effort on both sides of the ball.  For the first time all season, though, the Buffs did not have to hope for a fourth quarter stop by the defense to win, routing Iowa State, 31-3. Led by quarterback Mark Hatcher’s 95 yards and O.C. Oliver’s 79 yards, the Buffs rolled up 303 yards on the ground.  Behind Oliver’s two early scores, the Buffs were up 17-0 by …

 —  October 11th – at Missouri          Colorado 17, Missouri 12 — The bye week between the non-conference slate and the commencement of Big Eight play could not have come at a better time for the Colorado Buffs.  The Buffs were reeling at 0-4, though they could easily have been 3-1.  “It (the bye week) gives us a chance to regroup and get a new perspective on the season”, said Coach Bill McCartney, “I think we need to regroup emotionally as much as anything.” Whatever the coaching staff devised to rejuvenate …

 — 1985 Freedom Bowl — December 30th – at Anaheim, California           Washington 20, Colorado 17 Some 30,961 fans, representing all the interest that the 7-4 Buffs and 6-5 Washington Huskies could muster, were witness to an exciting, if not particularly well played, contest in the second-ever Freedom Bowl. Washington coach Don James and his Huskies, with a 20-17 victory, were able to salvage something from a 1985 campaign which had started with great promise. Washington had been rated highly in the preseason polls (6th in UPI; 12th in AP), only to lose …

— October 19th – at Iowa State           Colorado 40, Iowa State 6 — What in the name of Fred Folsom was going on? The Colorado Buffaloes, who couldn’t buy a conference win for the first half of the 1980’s, were now making it look easy. A 40-6 romp over Iowa State gave Colorado a 2-0 conference record for the first time since 1971 (the same season the Buffs went on to finish the season ranked No. 3 in the nation), and the Buffs’ largest margin of victory on the road since …

— 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 …
