— October 16th – at Texas Tech           Texas Tech 31, Colorado 10 — Who needs Ricky Williams? Not Texas Tech. With their star running back out for the season, the Red Raiders, just 2-3 on the year, seemed vulnerable. Colorado, with a 3-2 record, a 2-0 mark in Big 12 play, had fresh momentum after an overtime win over Missouri. Colorado seemed to be primed to take out Texas Tech, leaving the Red Raiders to contemplate a season of what “might have been” had Williams stayed healthy. Instead, it was Colorado which looked …

  September 25th – at Washington           Washington 31, Colorado 24 In every 1999 preseason magazine, whenever the University of Colorado was mentioned, the game against Washington on September 25th was highlighted. “Don’t forget that grudge match against Neuheisel and Washington in Seattle on September 25th”, reminded Street & Smith’s College Football preview. “Most Colorado fans are focused on one opponent”, declared Preview Sports. “Colorado State is a red-hot rivalry, but even that will be overshadowed when the Buffaloes travel to Washington three weeks later,” predicted The Sporting News. The game was as …

  Preseason – 1999 For Colorado to be successful in 1999, a number of players would have to rise above their 1998 performances. Mike Moschetti would return at quarterback, and was primed to have a banner year. Including the Aloha Bowl, Moschetti had 2,334 yards passing in 1998, with 19 touchdowns and only seven interceptions. The incumbent starter also impressed the new coaching staff with his intangibles – “The kinda guy you want next to you in a foxhole”, said new head coach Gary Barnett. Much of Moschetti’s success, though, …

  — October 10th – Boulder           No. 5 Kansas State 16, No. 14 Colorado 9 — Kansas State came to Boulder with a 2-24 all-time record in games played on the Buffs’ home turf. The Wildcats in 1998, though, were not the Wildcats of old. In rising to a No. 5 national ranking, Kansas State came to Folsom Field beating their opponents by an average of 57 points a game, and had a defense which had allowed a total of 21 points in its first four contests. Despite its lofty status and …

— September 26th – Boulder          No. 15 Colorado 18, Baylor 16 — The Baylor Bears, fresh off of a 33-30 win over North Carolina State (which in turn had just shocked the nation with a 24-7 win over previously 2nd-ranked Florida State) came to Boulder with aspirations of putting to rest the memories of a 2-9 1997 campaign. Baylor almost came away with the win, scoring late to pull ahead of Colorado, 16-15, with 6:31 remaining. But a 44-yard pass on third-and-ten from Adam Bledsoe, subbing for the injured Mike …

  — September 19th – Boulder           No. 15 Colorado 25, Utah State 6 — If Colorado’s 29-21 win over Fresno State the week before was a “wake up call”, then the Buffs’ 25-6 victory over Utah State was an indication that the team had apparently hit the snooze button. Penalties and injuries marred an otherwise excellent defensive performance as the Buffs raised their season record to 3-0 with a 25-6 victory over Utah State. Mike Moschetti, slowed by torn cartilage in his rib cage suffered in the Fresno State game, …
