Colorado Vs. Washington Final Score: Huskies Too Much For Buffs To Handle In 52-24 Decision

The Colorado Buffaloes can't shake that losing feeling, now 1-6 with a four-game losing streak. They fell to the Washington Huskies on Saturday afternoon, 52-24. From the opening kickoff to the last play of the game, this was the Huskies' game.

Washington quarterback Keith Price threw four first-half touchdown passes and finished the game 21-of-28 for 257 yards. He came out of the game during the second half and was replaced by Joe Montana's son, Nick. He went 2-of-2 for 10 yards. The Huskies' running game, though, held it down in the second half. Chris Polk finished with 117 yards and Jesse Callier came up with 81 yards and a touchdown run.

With the Buffaloes defense already in shambles, the offense wasn't able to do much until the second half of the game. Running back Rodney Stewart sat out the second half of the game with a leg injury, allowing Tony Jones to fill in and pick up two touchdowns. He had just 49 yards on the ground, 38 on a run to start the third quarter. Quarterback Tyler Hansen completed 18-of-30 passes for 155 yards and one touchdown.

The Buffs return home to Folsom Field for next week's game against the Oregon Ducks. The 5-1 Huskies visit the Stanford Cardinals next week.
