Colorado vs. Arizona halftime score: Buffaloes keep fighting, trail at halftime

The Colorado Buffaloes are not going away quietly as they have stuck close to the Arizona Wildcats through one half of play and are only trailing 21-17 in Tuscon.

The Buffaloes trailed by 11 points early in the second quarter after Ka'Deem Carey rushed for two more touchdowns in a three-minute span to give the Wildcats a 21-10 lead after they entered the second quarter trailing the Buffaloes by three.

But the Buffaloes answered late in the second quarter on a 13-play, 75-yard drive that culminated in a Christian Powell 1-yard touchdown run, his second of the game.

The quarterbacks were almost forgotten men until Arizona's B.J. Denker was able to put up a late touchdown pass to Dan Buckner to extend the Wildcats' lead to 11 points.

The Wildcats have had the ball for only 7:07 compared to the Buffaloes' 22:50 and yet the Wildcats still hold their double-digit lead.
