Huskies Take Down Buffs On Veterans Day, 38-3

BOULDER-After allowing Arizona to run right through them the previous week, the Colorado Buffaloes defense responded with a strong performance on Saturday against Washington, at least for nearly three quarters. However, this time it was the offense that was idle.

With an offense that had trouble moving the ball once again at home, the 'D' helped the Buffs get out of a couple tough situations in the first half and only be down 7-0 at halftime. But the lack of ball movement continued in the second half and the Colorado defense couldn't sustain the success they had of containing UW quarterback Keith Price, who threw four of his five touchdown passes in the final 30 minutes to lead Washington to the 38-3 win at Folsom Field.

The Buffaloes sit at 1-10, 1-7 in the Pac-12 with one game left while the Huskies improve to 7-4 overall and 5-3 in conference play.

"I thought our defense played well," Colorado coach Jon Embree said. "They really kept us in it, we just couldn't capitalize."

The game remained close throughout the first half and it wasn't until a 3-yard pass from Price to Cody Bruns with 1:02 before halftime did the Huskies find the end zone.

On Washington's previous four possessions, Colorado forced the Huskies to punt, fumble, miss a field goal and lose it on downs.

The fumble came on a 2nd-and-1 on the CU 9-yard line in which Husky tailback Bishop Sankey went up the middle but was stripped by senior linebacker Doug Rippy. With the ball bouncing at the goal line, fellow senior linebacker Jon Major scooped up the ball and found a way to keep his body out of the end zone to avoid the safety.

But only five plays later, quarterback Connor Wood - who was making his first career start - threw his first second interception to put the CU defense with their 'backs against the wall.'

Once again, the Buffs D was up to the challenge as UW went three-and-out (with some penalties thrown in there as well) and almost fumbled the punt but kicker Travis Coons was able to regain his composure and boot it away...more
