Really, it was a miracle that Colorado defeated Washington State Saturday in Pullman, Washington.The Buffalos were down by 17 mid-way through the fourth quarter. Then the Buffs offense went nuts with three touchdowns in the final 7:06 to stun the Cougars 35-34.
Here’s the video of Colorado quarterback Jordan Webb’s four yard touchdown run on a designed draw with nine seconds to go to tie the game. The extra point won it. (Thanks Fox Sports)
It was very conceivable that going into the game against Wazzou the Buffs were arguably the worst college football program in the country.
Colorado opened the season losing to in-state rival Colorado State 22-17. Then came an inexcusable home loss to Sacramento State 30-28. Last week the Buffs gave up 665 yards to Fresno State as the Bulldogs prevailed 69-14.
The folks at CU say this game was more than a miracle than the Miracle at Michigan in 1994 when Kordell Stewart hail mary to Michael Westbrook.
Enjoy it Buff fans, you deserve this one.
