Colorado/Oregon rematch of first ESPN CFB game ever

ESPN has been televising college football for 36 years now. It all started in 1979 and I’m sure fans today have been grateful for that ever since.

After rupturing his kidney last year, Chidobe Awuzie has bounced back nicely for CU

Editor’s Note: This column originally appeared in the fall edition of The Stampede, the official publication of the Buff Club. It was published before the Colorado football season began, but with Chidobe Awuzie racking up 18 tackles, four tackles for loss and a sack in the first four games it was clearly onto something.

Colorado needs Sefo Liufau

  If Colorado is going to beat Oregon on Saturday night (8 PM MST, ESPN), Sefo Liufau is going to have to be a lot better than he has been thus far, plain and simple. While the emerging run game has covered up some of the deficiencies of the passing attack, Colorado’s fairly one-dimensional offense will not hold up against tougher competition. To have success in the Pac-12 Conference...

Banged-up Sefo Liufau, Colorado anxious to take on Oregon

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) As Colorado's quarterback, Sefo Liufau is used to some pressure on his right shoulder. Pain is a different matter. Each time Liufau threw the ball last Saturday, his shoulder ached - a lot. ''How would I describe the pain? Immense,'' Liufau said Tuesday. ''Feels like a bruise, I guess. Just really hurts to throw. We'll say that.'' Not suiting up last weekend...

Colorado football wins easily against FCS foe in final nonconference game

Now it gets interesting for the Colorado Buffaloes and fans wondering if the program is turning the corner after years of futility.

You won’t believe how much CU is favored by over Nicholls State

The Colorado Buffaloes are a 46½ point-favorite ahead of tomorrow’s game against visiting Nicholls State University, per an offshore betting site. It’s not so much a testament to the prowess of the Buffs on the gridiron as it is an indicator of how fantastically awful Nicholls State Football has been. From Thibodaux, Louisiana, the Colonels have not won a game since 2013,...
