Gameday Live: Colorado Beats Stanford at the Buzzer
Noon update: Goooooood noon, everybody. Colorado will try to keep the dream of bowl eligibility alive against Stanford today. Join me for updates as we see what happens.
12:41: Tarik Luckett will start at cornerback.
1:20 p.m.: Steven Montez is the second player in CU history to reach 10,000 all-purpose yards (Sefo Liufau).
1:30 p.m.: This is the frustratingly good/bad Colorado team we’ve known all year. You can see the good. You can feel it.
1:42 p.m.: CU is in pace to allow 12 points today, which would not be a record, but feels like it anyway.
1:50 p.m.: Montez intercepted. Stanford is set up well to take the lead here.
1:54 p.m.: Rush arrived just a little late and Stanford is now 1-for-3 on third down.
2:00 p.m.: Stanford has a TD wiped out on review, throws incomplete on third, settled for a field goal to make it 7-6 CU. Lucky break for the Buffaloes there.
2:20 p.m.: Laviska Shenault is hurt again. This poor guy.
2:30 p.m.: A field goal puts CU up 10-6 with 32 seconds left in the half. Unusual game so far. Neither offense is doing much.
3:04 p.m.: Colorado’s defense hold, Stanford misses a field goal and the Buffaloes hold a 10-6 lead. I don’t know what’s going on.
3:06 p.m.: Laviska is back.
3:28 p.m.: This is like an old Big Eight game except that no running back has 40 carries yet.
3:32 p.m.: Feels like one of those games where CU punts one too many times.
3:34 p.m.: An 80-yard TD pass puts Stanford up 13-10 early in the fourth. Remember two minutes ago when I said one too many punts? Yeah.
3:49 p.m.: Colorado settles for a game-tying field goal.
3:54: Stanford goes three-and-out for the second time, and Colorado could win this with a long drive.
4:06 p.m.: Laviska with a man’s run on fourth and one to save CU from a very tough field goal try.
4:09 p.m: Evan Price kicks a game-winning field goal as time expires. Colorado ends a five-game losing streak and keeps its bowl hopes alive.
