Rocky Mountain Showdown: Colorado State Leads Colorado 16-14 After Third Quarter

After three quarters of play the Colorado St. Rams lead the Colorado Buffaloes 16-14, and it was Colorado State who scored the only touchdown of the quarter when Garrett Grayson completed a 32-yard touchdown pass to Joe Hansley. That score put the Rams on top for the first time since early in the game.

There was a series of plays late in the third quarter that almost made a difference in this game. Colorado had the ball inside the Rams 5-yard line when Colorado running back Tony Jones stretched out to try to get in the end zone. However, he fumbled and Colorado State took the ball back 100 yards for a touchdown, however after the play was reviewed the play was ruled that Jones' knee was down.

Colorado had another chance but on 4th-and-goal, quarterback Jordan Webb rolled out and over threw his receiver to turn the ball over on downs. The momentum was now in Colorado State's favor, but they were unable to take advantage of that play.
