UNCLE-NEPHEW SCORING When UCLA’s Joseph Fauria scored a touchdown today, he joined his uncle, CU’s Christian Fauria, in scoring touchdowns at Folsom Field. Fauria starred at tight end for the Buffaloes from 1991-94. The last known uncle-nephew combo to have scored TDs at Folsom would be Hale Irwin (scored a rushing TD when he played quarterback for the Buffs in 1964) and his nephew Heath Irwin (the last offensive lineman at CU to score a touchdown when he recovered a fumble in the end zone against Nebraska in 1995). Blake Anderson scored on a receiving TD the year before in 1994, with his uncle, Bobby, scoring plenty of them in his career from 1967-69.
WR TYLER McCULLOCH (7-69, 0 TD) He caught a career-high seven passes, giving him 19 for the season and 29 for his career—he’s now entered CU’s top 100 in all-time receptions at the 84th position.
