Number 12 Colorado’s 49-24 win over Arizona on Saturday night. Buffaloes quarterback Sefo Liufau went 19 of 27 for 213 yards, 3 touchdowns and 1 interception, while on the ground Phillip Lindsay rushed for 119 yard From Pak 12
From Neil woelk CU Buffaloes
TUCSON, Ariz. — It might not have been picture perfect, but on a day when upsets commanded college football headlines, the Colorado Buffaloes’ 49-24 win over Arizona on Saturday evening was plenty good enough.
Guaranteed, the folks at Clemson, Michigan, Washington, Auburn and Texas A&M would love to be discussing a win this morning.
Not that the Buffs (No. 16 AP, No. 12 CFP) were ever in danger of falling prey to an upset. After a slow start, the offense did its job, pulling away to a 28-10 halftime lead and a 42-10 edge by the end of the third quarter.
The defense, meanwhile, spent the evening playing bend but don’t break. The Buffs did give up more yards than most folks would have guessed — Arizona actually outgained Colorado 417-388 — but the Buffs also keep the Wildcats out of the end zone when it mattered most.
Thus, while a suddenly finicky fan base may find some things to question, the bottom line is this: the team picked to finish last in the Pac-12 South is instead 8-2 overall and leading the division with a 6-1 record with two games to go. That same team will now play host to Washington State on Saturday in a game that will feature the Pac-12’s division leaders.
Kickoff is set for 1:30 p.m. at Folsom Field and the game will be nationally televised by Fox (KDVR) with Gus Johnson and former Buffs quarterback standout Joel Klatt calling the game.
Let’s repeat that. Colorado and Washington State will square off Saturday in Boulder in late November in a game featuring the Pac-12 division leaders.
Savor that for just a minute — then consider what the Buffs accomplished on a day when the football gods were casting about all manner of complications for teams around the nation.
For starters, the Buffs got their offense moving back in the right direction. Quarterback Sefo Liufau threw for 213 yards and three touchdowns, and also ran for 56 yards and another score. Running back Phillip Lindsay notched his third 100-yard game this season, finishing with 119 and three touchdowns. Wide receiver Shay Fields caught six passes for 108 yards and a pair of scores and fellow wideout Jay MacIntyre had a 40-yard touchdown reception, the longest of his career.
“It was good to get the offense back on track,” Fields said. “We did some good things. We still made some mistakes, but we did what we have to do.”
Even more impressive was that the offense did it behind a patchwork line. Starting left tackle Jeromy Irwin, who was sick all week, did not play — but senior Shane Callahan stepped in and performed admirably. Starting right tackle Sam Kronshage didn’t play because of a shoulder injury, but redshirt freshman Aaron Haigler filled the bill in his stead. Starting left guard Gerrad Kough went out with an ankle injury and his replacement, Jonathan Huckins, also went out briefly with an injury before returning.
But when push came to shove, CU’s offensive line shoved the Wildcats out of the way, paving the way for a respectable 175 yards on the ground while limiting Arizona to just two quarterback sacks.
“Klayton (Adams, offensive line coach) did an unbelievable job with them,” head coach Mike MacIntyre said. “And my hat’s off to Shane Callahan. He went in at left tackle and played awesome.”
Defensively, the Buffs were good enough and then some. While Arizona quarterback Brandon Dawkins and running back Samajie Grant did cause some problems, the Buffs stopped them when they had no other choice. CU’s defense was outstanding inside the 20, limiting the Wildcats to one touchdown in the first three quarters. CU recorded four quarterback sacks, including a pair from Jimmie Gilbert, while getting nine tackles from Kenneth Olugbode and six apiece from Ryan Moeller and Gilbert.
CU also kept alive its nation-leading streak of producing at least one defensive takeaway, stretching the mark to 23 when Rick Gamboa recorded a second-quarter fumble recovery.
And, CU’s special teams were up to snuff. Davis Price returned to placekicking duties and was perfect on seven PAT tries while CU’s return teams were solid, as were the coverage teams.
It was, simply a top-to-bottom efficient, effective performance on a day when plenty of other top-20 teams couldn’t muster the same kind of effort. The Buffs left for Arizona aiming to come home one step closer to their goal of a Pac-12 championship, and they accomplished exactly that.
Now, they’ll have the chance to seal the deal at home. They host Washington State next Saturday, followed by the regular season finale with Utah one week later at Folsom Field.
“Our young men have taken us from good to really good,” MacIntyre said. “Now they have a chance to take us to great.”
Already, the Buffs have accomplished more than most people believed possible when the season began. But no one in the CU locker room is ready to pronounced the mission accomplished.
“We’re one step closer,” Liufau said. “Now Washington State is the biggest game for us. They just keep getting a little more important every week.”
For the older players on team, those who have been through two or three years of difficult times, games such as Saturday’s win are simply another reminder of where they’ve been and how far they’ve come. They came into the game having lost four straight to the Wildcats; now UA is just the latest team to see such a win streak against Colorado come to an end.
“We’re getting closer to that complete game,” Liufau said. “We needed the offense to come around and help the defense out. Our special teams played well. We know we can play better; we just have to go out and do that next week.”

City expands enforcement of bear protection ordinance to additional neighborhoods
The City of Boulder will begin enforcing the requirement that all residents and businesses west of Broadway and south of Sumac Avenue secure waste from bears starting Wednesday, June 15. Enforcement of the “bear protection zone” is part of the city’s bear protection ordinance, which was passed by City Council in March 2014.
To comply with the ordinance, residents and businesses in this zone must obtain and properly use bear-resistant trash bins or dumpsters or use waste enclosures. Proper use includes not overfilling and properly securing or latching bins, dumpsters and enclosures. Waste must not be left outside the waste containers. Bins and dumpsters must be latched shut at all times.
Starting Wednesday, Boulder Police Department code compliance officers will enforce the ordinance. They will not be giving warnings. Fines for first offenses are $250, with fines of $500 and $1,000 for second and third violations.
The goal of the measure is to reduce the food that bears can find in the neighborhoods in Boulder where bear sightings most commonly occur. Bears who forage successfully in urban areas lose their fear of people, which can lead to threatening and aggressive behavior and the bear’s removal or killing. The city has been enforcing the ordinance in many neighborhoods west of Broadway since October 2014.
Information about the ordinance, plus tips about how to be bear safe, can be found online at bouldercolorado.gov/wildlife. Residents and businesses who wish to learn more about obtaining proper waste receptacles should contact their waste disposal company.
For more information, contact Urban Wildlife Conservation Coordinator Val Matheson at email@example.com.
Light traffic impacts will occur throughout the day as candidates, media and attendees arrive on campus. The combination of national media, groups exercising First Amendment rights, candidates and related security details, and the normal rush hour traffic may cause significant delays on Broadway, US 36, and around campus later in the day.
Drivers wishing to avoid potential traffic congestion may wish to use alternate routes or adjust their travel schedules. Rolling road closures and traffic delays are expected on Broadway between Arapahoe Avenue and Pennsylvania Avenue between 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.as attendees and advocacy groups arrive and between 8:15 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. when the debate adjourns. Regent Drive has been closed for the debate.
Debate ticket holders are expected to be onsite between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. The majority of attendees for the debate are expected to be bused to campus from offsite locations, use public transportation or walk to the event.
CU also is providing a Free Speech Zone on campus at the Business Field, just north of the Coors Event Center; this area will be open to the public from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Wednesday. The city has approved three advocacy permits related to the debate for groups who expect to exercise their First Amendment rights. One group intends to be entirely on campus. Two others plan to gather in Central Park at 3 p.m. and walk to the Free Speech Zone between 5:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Advocacy groups have indicated that many participants will be bused into the city as there is no event parking associated with the debate.
The debate will be televised on CNBC, and candidates are expected to be in place well in advance of the event. For more information on the debate, go to Colorado.edu/rnc-debate.
As part of the 2015 update of the Boulder Valley Comprehensive Plan, the City of Boulder and Boulder County are asking 6,000 households in Boulder and the portions of the county that are in the Boulder Valley planning area to participate in a statistically valid survey that will help shape the future of their community.
The City of Boulder and Boulder County are working together with the community to update the Comprehensive Plan, which guides public policy and land use regulations in the area. The survey is a cornerstone of the effort and asks residents for their opinions about issues facing the Boulder Valley now and in the future. Responses to these questions will help shape the plan to reflect what people in the community want Boulder’s future to be like.
The city and county worked with RRC Associates, an independent consulting company, to create the survey. RRC Associates is administering the survey and selected the households to create a sampling that will yield a statistically valid result that accurately reflects opinion in the larger community. The firm will compile the responses and present the results to the city and county this December. One resident in each household who is older than 18 can take the survey. Residents who receive the survey can find instructions online atwww.bvcpsurvey.com.
Boulder and Boulder County ask that the 2,000 households that received paper surveys return them using the postage-paid envelope by Saturday, Oct. 10. The 4,000 households that received postcards inviting them to take the online form of the same survey are asked also are asked to complete it by Saturday, Oct. 10. Participants can choose to take either form of the survey, but can only take the survey once. Individual responses are confidential, and the survey takes about 15 minutes to complete.
For people interested in the plan update, the www.BoulderValleyCompPlan.net website contains a wealth of information about the plan, including area maps, the Trends Report and data, subcommunity fact sheets and information about how to get involved with the plan update.
