Gameday Live: Colorado Beats Stanford at the Buzzer

Tully Corcoran

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.
