Posts Tagged ‘Phillip Lindsday’

Missed field goals, turnovers, and poor execution in the red zone – issues which had plagued the Buffs all season – turned an otherwise close game into a rout, as No. 24 Washington State defeated Colorado, 27-3. The Cougars out-gained the Buffs, 481 yards to 323, with WSU quarterback Luke Falk going 27-for-35 for 199 yards and a touchdown before being knocked out of the game late in the third quarter.

Cade Apsay, making his first career start, went 26-for-40 for 238 yards, but was intercepted twice, was forced to fall on low snaps, and was sacked three times. Nelson Spruce collected 10 catches for 120 yards, and Phillip Lindsay had 16 carries for 78 yards, but none of the Buffs could come through when it mattered most. The Buffs went 5-of-16 on third downs, and 1-of-5 on fourth downs, falling to 4-8, 1-7 on the season.
