The Colorado Buffaloes dropped another game on Thursday, this time a 51-17 loss to the Arizona State Sun Devils at Folsom Field.
It wasn't as bad as the score looked, at least in the first half. In fact, the Buffaloes actually had a very manageable game on their hands at halftime. The offense and defense had both played solid football, trailing down 20-17 at the half. Unfortunately for CU, it went downhill quickly as they gave up a quick touchdown and looked listless from that point on.
CU blog The Ralphie Report said the second-half collapse was just another case of deja vu for the 1-5 Buffs:
The Buffaloes once again fell apart in the second half at home after a strong turn at the end of the second quarter let them head into the locker room down by only a field goal.
All that hope and momentum was quickly dashed when Rashad Ross took the opening kickoff of the second half 100 yards and silenced a suddenly energized Folsom crowd. From there the Sun Devils followed the lead of the Bruins two weeks ago and carved up a suddenly nowhere to be found Buffalo defense.
