The Cougars' defense looked porous up the middle and missed some tackles, allowing the Buffaloes' creative skill players to slip by them and pick up valuable yards after contact. The game swung back and forth a bunch, but Colorado pulled away in the fourth quarter and settled in for a key win.
But, as good teams do, the Buffs collected their undercarriage and came into the second half guns blazing, and WSU simply couldn't keep up.
