The Colorado Buffaloes (5-0) extended their winning streak to five games with an impressive 28-21 victory over Arizona State last Saturday.  Running back Travon McMillan rushed for 136 yards on 30 carries, and quarterback Steven Montez was sharp as he added 328 yards and 2 TDs in the air.  The win put the Buffs atop the South Division of the Pac-12, and undoubtedly will move them up college rankings.  Football is the ultimate team sport, but after a four-touchdown performance, wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. is creating his own headlines.

Bragging Rights

September 5th, 2017

The nerves were apparent as I sat down to watch the Rocky Mountain Showdown as the Colorado Buffaloes kicked off the 2017 college football season with a solid 17-3 victory over the Colorado State Rams. Coming off a year in which the Buffs went 10-4, won their division, and played in a major bowl game, you would think that I could relax a little. But the PTSD of the Dan Hawkins era must still lay fresh in my mind. Aware that this Colorado Buffalo squad had lost as many as nine players to the NFL draft, including their quarterback and a majority of their defensive backfield, and the fact that the... Read More
