Colorado’s (4-6, 2-5 Pac-12) Evan Price called game with a 37-yard kick as time expired on Saturday night. The Buffs claimed their Homecoming victory 16-13 against Stanford (4-5, 3-4 Pac-12).
On Saturday, a lot of eyes will light up when Colorado’s Laviska Shenault Jr. lines up against Stanford’s Paulson Adebo. Shenault, the Buffaloes’ top receiving option, and Adebo, the Cardinal’s All-American junior cornerback, will meet for the first time—since high school.
Cameron Scarlett was handed the ball 33 times and obliterated his career-high with 151 rushing yards on the way to an upset victory over No. 15 Washington at home. With the third-string quarterback under center behind three freshman offensive linemen, the fifth-year running back ran out the clock with 51 fourth-quarter yards and to preserve the Cardinal lead.
Two years ago, the last time Stanford went into Corvallis, a senior quarterback named Keller Chryst led the offense to a narrow 15-14 win. The game was Chryst’s last action in a Stanford uniform, because the sophomore quarterback who replaced him during injury in a win over Arizona State was ready to take the reins — K.J. Costello.
Stanford (1-2, 0-1 Pac-12) could not compete with No. 17 UCF (3-0, 0-0 AAC) and lost 45-27 on the road. Despite the Cardinal receiving the kickoff, the Knights scored twice in the first five minutes of the game, and Stanford never recovered.
