Buffs bounce Beavers

I made the trip down to Corvallis last weekend for the Oregon State – Colorado game. Both teams were looking for their first Pac-12 win of the season. Watching the game, you could tell why both of these teams were winless in the conference. It was a pretty rough game as both teams struggled to get their offenses going. Colorado was able to pull off a 17-13 victory. This was actually the first conference win in the last 14 tries for the Buffaloes, so they were happy to get that weight off of their backs.

Dawgs Stuff Buffs

The Colorado Buffaloes who have yet to win a PAC-12 game this year came into a soggy Husky Stadium on Saturday with a buffalo chip on their shoulder to get that first win, but today wasn’t that day. The Dawgs hit early and often and had their way with the Buffs blowing them away with a 59-7 pounding. It was the 6th win for the Huskies, making them bowl eligible, but the next few games will decide what bowl game they get invited to.
