Colorado played one of the toughest nonconference schedules in the Big 12, and not many people -- myself included -- thought they would be 3-1 when it was over.
But after sending Georgia to 1-4 with a 29-27 win on Saturday, that's exactly what they've done. They beat the Bulldogs, Colorado State and Hawaii. Their only loss came at Cal, 52-7.
Georgia had the ball inside the Colorado 30-yard line in the closing minutes, but Caleb King fumbled and the Buffaloes took over to seal the win.
The Buffaloes didn't limit A.J. Green in his return from a four-game suspension -- he had seven catches for 119 yards and two touchdowns -- but they played well enough to beat just the second SEC team to ever come to Boulder.
Colorado running back Rodney Stewart ran 19 times for 149 yards and a touchdown.
That's a much-needed win for the Buffaloes and head coach Dan Hawkins, who is 3-1 and chasing his first winning season at Colorado.
