QUICKLY Stanford now leads the series 5-3, winning for the first time in Boulder since 1904 (when Teddy Roosevelt was president) ... The Buffs are 61-32-5 in Homecoming games in their history but have dropped the last five ... CU has lost 11 straight against ranked teams (last win: 34-30 over Kansas in 2009) ... The Buffaloes are now 56-33-1 in their last 90 November games (50-21 not including the Nebraska rivalry games, 2-3 under Embree).

This was the second game of the year where both CU and its opponent went 3-and-out on the opening drive (other: CSU) ... Stanford ran 21 plays in plus territory in the first half (for 159 yards); CU never crossed the 50 in the half (best field position was its own 42, but that’s where the catch/fumble occurred) ... For the game, the Buffs had just two plays in Stanford territory, a 2-yard TB Donta Abron rush and then the loss of 24 on the sack/fumble of QB Nick Hirschman (by comparison, Stanford gained 241 yards on 37 plays in plus territory) ... The minus-21 rushing yards on 21 attempts (which does include 46 yards lost in sacks per NCAA calculation rules) is the second lowest in CU history; in 2007 CU had minus-27 against Florida State in Boulder (25 attempts) ... The last time CU was held under 100 yards both rushing and passing was on Oct. 10, 2009 in a 38-14 loss at Texas (42 rushing, 85 passing) ...  The 6 first downs by the Buffs were their fewest since Oct. 21, 2006, when they had 5 at Oklahoma in a 24-3 setback.

Colorado had a season-low 23:43 in time of possession today; in fact, the Buffs possessed the ball more than the opponent six straight games coming in ... Opponents are now 12-of-14 in field goals this season, 104-of-133 since 2006 which includes 72-of-83 inside 40 yards (Stanford’s pair were both in the 30s)... All nine CU games this fall have taken at least 3 hours and 11 minutes; tonight’s was 3:13, but 10 minutes under the average coming in (3:18).

RARE HOME SHUTOUT  Colorado had scored in 150 straight games at home until today; the last shutout had been a 28-0 loss to Oklahoma on Nov. 15, 1986 (when CU ran the wishbone offense).  This was just the third time CU was shutout at Folsom Field over the course of the last 288 games (all the way back to 1963; the other was in 1979 to LSU, 44-0.

INDIVIDUAL LINER NOTES
DE Will Pericak started his 46th straight game today (every game of his career, dating back to his first in the ’09 opener); already the mark for most consecutive starts on offense or defense; he snaps a tie with ILB Jordon Dizon (2004-07) for the most starts by a defensive player in CU history; the most starts overall is 47 (OL Ryan Miller, 2007-11).
ILB Brady Daigh and DT Justin Solis made their first career starts today; that’s 18 players making their first career starts in 2012, tied for fourth most in the nation behind Hawaii (26), Air Force (21) and Temple (20); TCU also has 18.
DB Harrison Hunter and DE John Tuso saw their first action as Buffaloes (Hunter, a sophomore, played as a true freshman at Fort Lewis—and becomes the latest father-son combo at CU as his father Derek played for CU in he 1980s); Tuso is a redshirt frosh.
