Dinwiddie, a second-round draft pick from Colorado, is recovering from a torn left ACL he suffered in mid-January, an injury that caused...

Colorado’s Spencer Dinwiddie went pro to get better treatment for torn ACL

Colorado’s hot start was one of the best storylines of the early college basketball regular season. The Buffaloes had lost the Pac-12′s leading rebounder in forward Andre Roberson to the 2013 NBA Draft, but Tad Boyle’s bunch still started the season 14-2, including a statement win against Kansas. But much of that momentum was derailed on January 12th, as star junior guard...

Colorado Buffaloes look to renew age-old rivalry with Nebraska

The transition from the Big 12 conference to the Pac 12 conference has certainly not been an easy one for the Colorado Buffaloes football team.
