Colorado Vs. Washington State Final: Buffaloes Defeat Cougars, 35-34

The Colorado Buffaloes won their first game of the season against the Washington State Cougars Saturday when quarterback Jordan Webb scored on a last-minute touchdown to give Colorado a 35-34 come-from-behind victory.

Washington State separated itself from Colorado in the second quarter, but the Buffaloes kept coming back.

The Cougars, led by quarterback Connor Halliday, scored two touchdowns in the second. Marquess Wilson caught a 23-yard touchdown pass from Halliday at the open of the second quarter. Then, Halliday connected with Isiah Myers three minutes later.

Webb scored on a one-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. But Halliday and Wilson connected again, this time for a 49-yard touchdown score.

Colorado outplayed Washington State in the fourth quarter, scoring on three touchdowns while the Cougars put up field goals. Those field goals had been just enough to keep the Buffaloes at bay. But Webb capped a 13-play, 70-yard drive with his game-winning touchdown scamper.
