  11/28/20 - Nate LandmanSr/2021, Colorado, 6-2, 235 (DS#6 ILB) + More +

  Colorado linebacker Nate Landman wasn't being flippant, just setting the record straight. Asked about the defense surrendering 10 points and how this could be a much-needed confidence boost, he pointed out his side of the ball only surrendered a field goal. Fair enough. Landman led a stellar defensive showing to help Colorado hold off San Diego State 20-10 on Saturday night as the Buffaloes remain undefeated under new coach Karl Dorrell. "(The defense) came to play today," said Buffaloes tailback Jarek Broussard, who rushed for 124 yards. "They honestly won us the game."

Colorado's offense did its part, too, with Sam Noyer running for a score and throwing for another in building an early 14-0 lead. He did throw an interception, though, that Aztecs cornerback Darren Hall returned for a 57-yard score. Hence, Landman's assessment. "All in all, I'm glad we were able to pull out the win. It was led by our defense," Dorrell said. "Good teams find ways to win, right?" Not bad for short notice. The Buffaloes and Aztecs didn't find out they were meeting on the field until Thanksgiving Day. Colorado (3-0, 2-0 Pac-12) was originally scheduled to travel to No. 19 USC for a Pac-12 South showdown, but it was canceled due to COVID-19 issues within the Trojans' program. - Colorado/AP College Football

  Sam Noyer ran for a score and threw for another to help Colorado hold off San Diego State 20-10 on Saturday night as the Buffaloes remain undefeated under new coach Karl Dorrell. Jarek Broussard rushed for 124 yards to top the 100-yard mark for a third straight game, while a Colorado defense led by linebacker Nate Landman kept relentless pressure on a banged-up Aztecs offense. A stingy San Diego State defense kept things close, though, even providing a big first-half spark when Darren Hall picked off a Noyer pass and returned it for a 57-yard score. That was after Colorado grabbed a 14-0 lead behind a 1-yard TD run by Noyer and a 3-yard flip pass to Jaylon Jackson.

The Buffaloes and Aztecs didn't find out they were meeting on the field until Thanksgiving Day. Colorado (3-0, 2-0 Pac-12) was originally scheduled to travel to No. 19 USC for a Pac-12 South showdown, but it was canceled due to COVID-19 issues within the Trojans' program. San Diego State (3-3, 3-2 Mountain West) was available for a trip to Boulder when its contest at Fresno State was called off due to contact tracing concerns with the Bulldogs. - Colorado/AP College Football

  11/26/20 - Sam NoyerSr/2021, Colorado, 6-3, 220 (DS#35 QB) + More +

  Part of Noyer's success so far has come from his aggressive running style, including a few times when he's tried to leap over defenders. He said having last week off - after Arizona State had to cancel the game because of COVID-19 issues - helped his body rest. "Really all of us, I think it helps just to get our bodies back right, but overall I think my body's doing really well," he said. While Noyer has said he needs to be smarter in avoiding contact - and head coach Karl Dorrell agrees - he added that human nature will be tough to contain. "When the adrenaline's flowing, I just kind of react," he said. "I probably shouldn't be as airborne as I have been, but if I need that first down, I'm gonna go get it and I think that's something you're going to continue to see."

In addition to resting, Noyer said last week was beneficial as the Buffs go into a big matchup with the Trojans. USC and Colorado are the only undefeated teams in the Pac-12 South division. "I think it gave us extra time to prepare for a great SC team and I think guys took each day as a new opportunity to prepare and get better," Noyer said. "I don't think that guys really took a step back. I think a lot of people can take a step back in those type of situations but I think our team has handled it really well and I think Coach Dorrell has done a great job of handling the entire situation well. I think overall we did a good job of preparing and now we're back on to a real game and we're ready to go." Noyer credits his relationship with offensive coordinator Darrin Chiaverini and quarterbacks Danny Langsdorf for getting him ready each week. - Denver Post

  11/25/20 - Isaiah LewisJr/2022, Colorado, 6-0, 205 (DS#41 FS) + More +

  Opportunities to play on defense didn't come often for Isaiah Lewis during his first three years with the Colorado Buffaloes. Two games into his fourth season, Lewis is not only playing, but he's arguably been the best member of the secondary for the Buffaloes (2-0), who are slated to visit 19th-ranked Southern California (3-0) on Saturday. "I follow the model to just trust the journey and stay true to the process," Lewis said. "I know that some guys get on the field immediately and some guys have to work their way in." A 6-foot, 205-pound safety from Granite Bay, Calif., Lewis redshirted in 2017 and made just five appearances on defense from 2018-19, playing a total of 29 snaps. He also played every game in 2019 on special teams. "I think just kind of staying loyal to special teams and making sure that I'm staying in the playbook and keying in on details, it was a difference maker," he said. "Continuing to follow details was what I stuck to and I think it worked out for the best."

Lewis didn't win a starting job in preseason camp, but played 41 snaps off the bench in the opener against UCLA. An injury to junior Chris Miller in that game opened the door even more. Lewis played all 79 defensive snaps against Stanford on Nov. 14. He's recorded seven tackles and a team-high five pass breakups so far this season. "Here's a guy that's been under the radar," head coach Karl Dorrell said. "He had a really good training camp for us and he plays a number of positions in our secondary, and particularly our safety position. Then when Chris went down, prior to the Stanford game, he had to show in that role that Chris was not able to do. He played well but I'm not surprised by that. He had a really good camp." - Denver Post

  NOV 16 PAC-12 OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Sam Noyer, Sr., QB, Colorado (Beaverton, Ore.),...Noyer became just the 12th quarterback to win his first two for Colorado since 1959 with the Buffs' 35-32 win over Stanford...He completed 15 of 24 pass attempts for 255 yards with two touchdowns...Noyer added 36 yards on the ground, with two rushing touchdowns, for four total touchdown on the day. He's the first Colorado quarterback to score two rushing touchdowns in a game since Steven Montez did so in a 38-16 over UCLA in 2018. And the first to run for two and pass for two touchdowns since Sefo Liufau did so in a 38-31 loss to Arizona in 2015...Earned 15 first downs, five rushing for the second-straight game...Also nominated: Grant Gunnell, QB, Arizona; Tyler Shough, QB, Oregon; Davis Mills, QB, Stanford; Demetric Felton, RB, UCLA; Kedon Slovis, QB, USC. - Pac-12 Conference Football

  Sam Noyer passed for two touchdowns and ran for two more, Jarek Broussard had another strong day rushing, and Colorado held on to beat Stanford 35-32 on Saturday. Dimitri Stanley caught six passes for 126 yards and a score as Colorado remained unbeaten under first-year coach Karl Dorrell. Noyer, a fifth-year senior who nearly transferred out of Colorado after playing safety last season, threw an interception on his fourth pass of the afternoon then settled in to complete 15 of 24 attempts for 255 yards. Noyer scored on a 7-yard option keeper midway through the second quarter then led the Buffaloes on three scoring drives coming out of halftime.

Brenden Rice had a 34-yard touchdown catch and Jaren Mangham added a one-yard touchdown run for Colorado (2-0, 2-0 Pac-12). Davis Mills passed for 327 yards and a touchdown in his first game of the season for Stanford (0-2, 0-2). Mills was one of four players forced to sit out last week's game against Oregon because of coronavirus concerns. The Pac-12 later admitted errors in the testing protocol that kept the four Stanford players out. Jet Toner added three field goals for the Cardinal. Stanford lost its home opener for the first time since 2007. - AP College Football

  Jarek Broussard had the most rushing yards by a player in his first game for Colorado, going for 187 yards and three touchdowns in a 48-42 win over UCLA. The freshman tailback had the third-best rushing day by a player making his starting debut. Mike Pritchard in 1990 and Billy Waddy in 1973 each had over 200 yards in their first starts. - AP College Football

  Tailback Jarek Broussard scored three times in his first start, Colorado's defense produced two big fourth-down stops in the final quarter and the Buffaloes opened the Karl Dorrell Era by holding off UCLA 48-42 on Saturday night. It was far from easy even after amassing an early 28-point lead. UCLA cut the deficit to 48-42 with 1:45 remaining on a 9-yard TD catch by Mike Martinez. But the onside kick was recovered by Colorado's Dimitri Stanley and the Buffaloes (1-0) ran out the clock. Broussard finished with 187 yards rushing as the Buffaloes won their fifth straight season opener. The game was played in front of 554 fans made up of family and friends due to COVID-19 restrictions.

The Buffaloes built a 28-point lead late in the first half on mistake-prone UCLA (0-1), which turned the ball over four times before halftime that Colorado cashed into 21 points. But the Bruins shook off the rocky start and scored 21 straight to turn what looked to be a rout into a back-and-forth encounter. There were no punts in the second half, but there were two blocked field goals by UCLA and Colorado made a pair of fourth-down stops. The crucial one was stuffing UCLA on fourth-and-1 at the Colorado 30 with 13:13 remaining and leading 45-35. Sam Noyer, a graduate senior all set to leave before being re-recruited by the new coaching staff, efficiently ran the offense. He threw for 257 yards and a score. He also ran for another. - AP College Football

  11/07/20 - Alex FontenotrJr/2022, Colorado, 5-11, 195 (DS#32 RB) + More +

  Colorado could be without one of its best offensive players for a while. On Monday, it was revealed running back Alex Fontenot, the Buffaloes' leading rusher in 2019, will miss Saturday's season opener against UCLA (5 p.m., TV: ESPN2) with an undisclosed injury. On Tuesday, head coach Karl Dorrell said there's no guarantee the 6-foot, 205-pound junior from Richmond, Tex., will play this season. Fontenot was injured in practice late last week. "It's unfortunate that he's dealing with an issue but it's not surgical, which is a good thing," Dorrell said. "He's gonna have to heal up. This is a short season and no one's losing eligibility this year, so we hope to have him back at some point this year and if not, then we'll have him ready to go next year in the fall." As a first-year starter in 2019, Fontenot led the Buffs with 874 yards and five touchdowns on the ground, while handling 57.6 percent of the running back carries. He also caught 27 passes for 122 yards. "He's obviously very disappointed," Dorrell said. "He was counting on himself coming back from a pretty good sophomore year, coming in and playing this year." - Daily Camera

  11/06/20 - Jarek BroussardrSo/2023, Colorado, 5-09, 185 (DS#37 RB) + More +

  Sophomore tailback Jarek Broussard was routinely praised by Colorado coaches and players during the past few weeks as the Buffaloes went through preseason camp. It appears Broussard was impressive enough to earn his first career start. On Monday, the Buffs released their depth chart for Saturday's opener against UCLA (5 p.m., TV: ESPN2), and it included Broussard as the No.1 tailback. Last year's leading rusher, junior Alex Fontenot, is on the injury list with an undisclosed injury, and Broussard appears to have earned the right to take the first snaps against the Bruins.

Now in his third year with the Buffs, Broussard has yet to play a game at CU, as he redshirted in 2018 and missed the 2019 season with a knee injury. The 5-foot-9, 185-pound sophomore from Dallas flashed skills in practice, however, that reminded running backs coach Darian Hagan of former CU star Rodney Stewart - the third-leading rusher in program history. "Broussard has come a long way," Hagan said last week. "He's playing with a lot of confidence. He knows exactly what he's doing. And he brings a different element to the game. He's a real jitterbug. He's a guy that he can take it to the house, he can make guys miss in the open field. That's the guy that we've been missing. We've been missing a back like that." - Daily Camera

  10/27/20 - Daniel AriasJr/2022, Colorado, 6-3, 205 (DS#115 WR) + More +

  Two seasons into his college career, Daniel Arias has proven to be one of the Buffs' top players on special teams, while flashing his potential as a receiver. Entering his junior year, the 6-foot-4, 205-pound Arias could be poised for a breakout season, and he said being around former teammates Laviska Shenault and Tony Brown, who are now both in the NFL, has helped him progress. "I've built my confidence way more this season, just being around Viska and Tony and just getting their advice and talking to them," Arias said. "Learning from them and learning what they do and how they do it has built my confidence. This season I feel like I'm ready. I feel like this is my time to shine and I'm going to do what I can to help my team win. That's my goal." Arias, who has four catches for 99 yards and two touchdowns in his career, said extra film and technique work has made a difference this year. - Daily Camera
