Final: Fresno State 69, Colorado 14
By Ted Miller
Rock bottom may be a moving target for Colorado this year.
The Buffaloes, after an 0-2 start that included a home loss to a middling FCS team, Sacramento State, got pounded 69-14 at Fresno State, a team with a new coach that went 4-9 last year.
Colorado was outgained 665 yards to 278. The Bulldogs rolled up 288 yards rushing.
The Buffaloes used two quarterbacks, but Jordan Webb, who has started all three games, and backup Connor Wood both threw two interceptions.
The game was over in the first quarter, when Fresno State took a 35-0 lead. The halftime count was 55-7.
Going into the game, this looked like the Buffs best chance for a win this year. Now it's legitimate to entertain the notion of a winless season for second-year coach Jon Embree, who already is hearing gripes from the fan base.
