Buffs fill biggest need of 2018 class

BOULDER – The Colorado Buffaloes have already added plenty of skilled players both on offense and defense in the 2018 recruiting class, but up to this point they had yet to fill their need on the defensive line.

The 2017 Colorado Buffaloes football team, as told by stats

Eyes say one thing, what do the cool stats say? Sometimes, numbers lie more than eyeballs. For instance, if you just looked at the box score for the game against UNC last Saturday, it tells a different story than the eyeballs do. The Bears from Greeley only converted one third down, CU doubled their yardage total, and averaged a very nice 8.7 yards per pass attempt and 5.4 per rush...

A healthy Kyle Evans brings new dimension to Buffs’ run game

BOULDER – Nothing has come easily to Colorado Buffaloes running back Kyle Evans. The former walk-on has had to work for everything he’s got but nothing has felt like more of a setback than when he dislocated his hip during a spring football scrimmage and his 2017 season started to look like a doubt. “I learned that I’m able to persevere more than I thought I could before...

Colorado’s Mike MacIntyre has long respected Washington’s Chris Petersen

BOULDER — Mike MacIntyre was a first-time head coach in 2010 at San Jose State in his seventh game when then-No. 3 ranked Boise State came to town. Chris Petersen and the Broncos dominated, 48-0, and in retrospect, MacIntyre said: “It was like watching magic. They were unbelievable.” Saturday figures to be more competitive. The University of Colorado and seventh-ranked Washington...

30-year-old kicker from Australia shining for Colorado

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Don’t address the 30-year-old freshman kicker from Australia as “Sir.” It makes him feel old. As for any sort of age joke, go ahead, because Colorado’s James Stefanou has heard them all — and usually it’s him cracking them. “I figure if you make the jokes, they’re not going to make them for you,” he said. The former soccer standout has quickly...
