Mizzou rolling at the half 31-10 over Colorado

Boulder, Colo.- The Daniels led offense continues to roll. Daniels started off with a interception, but was able to put it in his rear view mirror. Despite Colorado converting an early interception and a blocked punt into points, they have since gone cold ending the half with five straight three and outs. The Buffs also have no answer for Mizzou's spread offense. The first half has been highlighted by big plays through the air with Daniels hitting his primary receivers William Franklin and Jeremy Maclin, who combined account for 194 of Daniels' 289 yards. The biggest play has come off the Tigers final drive of the half. The Tigers had the ball at the Colorado 25 yard line and were facing a third and six. Daniels dropped back and looked through his reads, seeing no one open. Daniels, feeling pressure, rolled out of the pocket to his right. He threw across his body to his open tight end Chase Coffman who broke two Buffs tackles to rumble into the endzone putting Mizzou further ahead 31-10. We'll see if the Buffs can answer.

Student Body

BOULDER, Colo. - Folsom field is filled at capacity tonight thanks to the students. The CU student body has often been accused of being fair-weather fans. The most recent example was during the Oklahoma game where nearly half the student section was absent before the Buffs began their comeback. By the time Eberhart's game winning field goal cleared the uprights, the student section was magically full again ready to rush the field. Tonight the student section is full despite their team trailing Mizzou 24-10.

Tom Brady-like Review Swings Momentum Tigers Way

BOULDER, Colo.- The tide shifts the Tigers' way with the first play of the second quarter. During Colorado freshman quarterback Cody Hawkins' attempted throw, Missouri defensive lineman Lorenzo Williams hit the ball loose before Hawkins' arm started to go forward. The play was briefly reviewed and the play stood. Missouri took. Daniels and the rest of the Mizzou offense did not waste time and took advantage via a 46-yard pass to freshman wideout Jeremy Maclin to put the tigers up 14-10 with plenty of time left in the second quarter.

#9 Missouri at Colorado turnover battle

Boulder, Colo. - On Missouri's second play from scrimmage, QB Chase Daniels' throw was tipped in the air and intercepted by Colorado Defensive Tackle George Hypolite (his first career interception) who took it to Missouri's 11 yard line. Three plays later, senior tailback Byron Ellis' three yard run put the Buffs up 7-0 sending Folsom Field into an early frenzy.

#9 Missouri at Colorado pre-game warm-ups

Nov. 3 2007
Boulder, Colo.- The Buffaloes appear to be loose during warm-ups doing their best impression of rap artist Soulja boy's superman. The Colorado cheerleaders joined in the dance. The edge has to go to the players.

#9 Missouri at Colorado preview

Nov. 3, 2007
BOULDER, Colo.- Over the past few years the Big 12 North has been lacking intra-conference games, Big 12 North v. Big 12 North, with potential BCS impact in November. There will be such a match-up today as No. 9 Missouri (7-1, 3-1 Big 12) squares off against Colorado (5-4, 3-2 Big 12).

Colorado comes up short against Jayhawks

BOULDER, Colo. - On a blustery day in Boulder it seems fitting that the flags around Folsom Field have quit whipping. With 2:16 remaining in the fourth quarter and down 19-14, the Buffs were primed to make a march down the field to score the game winning touchdown. Alas the wind was taken from the Buffs sails as the No. 15 Kansas Jayhawks walked away from Boulder with a five point win.

On Kansas' first drive CU's interior defense showed lingering effects of last week against Kansas State as the Jayhawks were able to get a couple of first downs on big runs up the middle. The Buffs defense however, did hold on the Jayhawks first possession and force a punt.

Big day in Boulder

BOULDER, Colo. - On a breezy warm Colorado fall day the Buffs will look to bounce back after a tough 27-point loss to Kansas State last week. The surprising 6-0 No. 15 Kansas Jayhawks walk into Boulder atop the Big 12 North as the season of stunners continues in college football.

Kick near in Ames

Give Iowa State credit.

The Stadium is very nearly full, even to watch 1-6 Iowa State likely be throttled by 6-1 and fourth-ranked Oklahoma. On the other hand, a note to the schedulers, Kansas State and Colorado look like better homecoming candidates than the Sooners. But then, perhaps, Ames may be no place to visit in November.

Still, the homecoming commotion is impressive. A bunch of true believers. And why not. Strangers things have happened … even this season.

The teams are lining up.

And there's the kick.
