Pac 12 Football Teams Shocker
Wow Just Wow…A shocker in Pullman. Never say Never!
The reputed worst team in major college football got off the canvas Saturday, set its jaw and smacked Washington State in the nose.
Colorado, widely mocked for a remarkably poor showing in an 0-3 start against bad competition, overcame a 17-point fourth-quarter deficit to win 35-34 at Washington State.
Colorado (1-3, 1-0 in the Pac-12) capped a 13-play, 70-yard TD drive with a fourth-and-4 TD run on a QB draw from Jordan Webb with 11 seconds remaining to earn the victory after converting the tie-breaking PAT. Before that, it used the big play to get back into the game, scoring on a 70-yard pass from Webb to tight end Nick Kasa and an 84-yard run from RB Tony Jones.
Webb seemed to find a groove in the fourth quarter that had previously eluded the Kansas transfer. He finished with 345 yards passing — 29-of-42 — with two touchdowns and an interception. He also ran for a pair of scores, showing some gumption, despite being sacked five times.
