Colorado head coach Mike MacIntyre told reporters he will not be the next coach at Baylor.

It was only a rumor in the first place. The Baylor coaching search has already caused confusion, leading off with Tom Herman and Chad Morris. Herman is now at Texas and Morris locked up a long term deal at SMU. Cal head coach Sonny Dykes is the latest rumor, but this could take a while despite Baylor knowing they would have a new coach in 2017 since the start of this season.

Colorado redshirt junior RB Phillip Lindsay rushed for 53 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries in Friday's 41-10 loss to Washington in the Pac-12 Championship Game.

Lindsay's touchdown -- a three-yard score with under a minute remaining in the first quarter -- temporarily knotted the proceedings at 7-7. The Buffs would not find the end zone again. The 5-foot-8, 180-pound Lindsay has rushed for just 108 yards over his last two games. He had posted at least 100 yards rushing in four of his previous five contests prior to this recent sluggishness.

Colorado senior QB Sefo Liufau (leg) completed 3-of-13 passes for 21 yards and three touchdowns in Friday's 41-10 loss to Washington in the Pac-12 Championship Game.

Liufau will need the 'Men in Black' memory eraser for this one. The game started off poorly enough for the 6-foot-4, 230-pound senior, as he suffered a leg injury just minutes into the first quarter. That injury sidelined him for the remainder of the first half. He came back out for the third quarter, at which point the wheels truly fell off. Indeed, Liufau was intercepted three times in that quarter -- this after throwing just three interceptions in the previous 10 games combined. Sour end-note aside, there is no shade to be thrown at Colorado's marvelous 10-3 season.

Colorado senior QB Sefo Liufau (leg) is starting the second half of the Pac-12 Championship Game against Washington.

Liufau was knocked out for most of the first half due to a leg injury initially sustained during a first-quarter sack. While he has returned to action, it has not been a fun time. Liufau has thrown a pair of interceptions on Colorado's two offensive possessions of the second half, including one which was returned for a touchdown. Washington leads 21-7 with 12:49 remaining in the third quarter as of this posting.
Dec 2 - 11:21 PM

Colorado senior QB Sefo Liufau exited Friday's Pac-12 Championship Game in the first quarter due to a possible leg injury.

Liufau suffered the injury when he was sacked early in the first quarter. He stayed down on the field for a time before being assisted to the sideline. FOX cameras caught his right foot/ankle being taped up, so it would appear that he might potentially try to re-enter game. Steven Montez would be the young man to take over quarterbacking duties should Liufau be unable to return to action.

Colorado WR Bryce Bobo (ankle) is questionable for Friday's game against Washington.

Bobo missed last weekend's win over Washington State with the injury, and, according to Fansided, is "unlikely [to] play" against the Huskies in the Pac-12 Championship Game. Shay Fields and Devin Ross make for a nice 1-2 punch on the outside, but Bobo has proven to be a strong No. 3 in posting a 41-523-2 line this year

Colorado HC Mike MacIntyre was named winner of the Walter Camp Coach of the Year Award.

Well deserved by MacIntyre. He compiled a paltry 8-27 mark with the Buffs over his first three seasons, but everything has gone right in 2016. Colorado is heading to the Pac-12 title game to face off against Washington on Friday courtesy of a 10-2 record (8-1 in conference). Their lone losses in 2016 have come to a borderline-Playoff outfit in Michigan and a red-hot USC team. And that's it. If Colorado really wants to have some fun, a win over Washington could force some interesting decisions for the CFB Playoff committee, though Colorado itself is unlikely to crash the top four.

Colorado senior CB Chidobe Awuzie accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Awuzie is a four-year starter who stuck it out during the rough times in Boulder. The 6-foot, 190-pound Awuzie will bring versatility, with an ability to play multiple positions, to the NFL. Pro Football Focus is a notable fan of his work. The 68th Reese's Senior Bowl will take place at 1:30 pm CT on Jan. 28.

Colorado suspended redshirt junior TE Chris Hill and senior WR Jaleel Awini for Friday's Pac-12 Championship game against Washington.

Hill and Awini have hit HC Mike MacIntyre's doghouse at an inopportune time. The pair is being punished for an alleged off-campus incident on Saturday, one in which Hill was charged with third-degree assault and Awini possession of cocaine. Awini is also facing a citation for failure to report to court on an earlier public urination charge. While Hill has just been suspended for the Pac-12 Championship at this juncture, Awini has been suspended indefinitely. Consider these depth blows for the Buffs, rather than crucial losses.

Colorado redshirt junior RB Phillip Lindsay rushed for 55 yards on 12 carries in Saturday's 27-22 win over Utah.

Lindsay crumpled Washington State with 144 yards rushing (plus two touchdowns) last weekend, but even in victory there was no crumpling of Utah on Saturday. The 5-foot-8, 180-pound redshirt junior will try to rev his engine back up in next weekend's showdown with Washington for the Pac-12 title. Lindsay has rushed for 1,131 yards and 15 touchdowns through 12 games to date.
Nov 26 - 11:42 PM

Colorado senior QB Sefo Liufau completed 23-of-44 passes for 270 yards and a touchdown in clinching the Pac-12 South with Saturday's 27-22 win over Utah.

Liufau and the Buffs were largely quiet on offense in the first half, with the quarterback's two-yard first-quarter touchdown run serving as Colorado's lone touchdown prior to them hitting the locker room for halftime. They held just a 13-7 advantage heading into the third quarter. Utah would tie matters up with a pair of third-quarter field goals before Liufau snapped the newly-minted tie via a six-yard touchdown pass to Shay Fields in the closing seconds of that quarter. His squad would not trail again in the contest. Pac-12 South now secured, Colorado will have the tough task of trying to keep pace with Pac-12 North winner Washington next weekend.
Nov 26 - 11:35 PM

Colorado senior QB Sefo Liufau threw for 345 yards while rushing for 108 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 38-24 win over Washington State.

Lifau did not throw for a score, but he made up for that with a strong rushing effort. Indeed, his 108 yards rushing on Saturday stand as his best total of the 2016 campaign. Two of his three ground scores came in the third quarter. Liufau missed three games earlier this season due to an ankle injury, but in his eight healthy contests, he has thrown for 1,880 yards with a 10/3 TD/INT ratio. He has also rushed for 422 yards and six touchdowns.
Nov 19 - 7:45 PM

Colorado redshirt junhior RB Phillips Lindsay rushed for 144 yards and two touchdowns on 31 carries in Saturday's 38-24 win over Washington State.

In what was a fantastic game through three quarters prior to Colorado pulling away in the fourth, Lindsay served as a workhorse through-and-through. His two touchdowns would bookend the game's scoring, as he found the end zone from nine yards out in the first quarter to open the contest's scoring and would come back around to score from 13 yards out in the fourth to close it. Colorado will roll into next weekend's regular-season finale against Utah on a five-game winning streak. No coincidence, Lindsay has topped 100 yards rushing in four of the last five games. For the season as a whole, the 5-foot-8, 180-pounder has racked up 1,081 yards on the ground while scoring 15 touchdowns.

Ohio State four-star 2017 verbal T commit Jake Moretti flipped his pledge to Colorado.

Moretti had been committed to the Buckeyes' cause since July of 2015, but no longer. The Arvada, Colorado, native has instead opted to stay in state. He took to Twitter to announce his decision on Thursday night. Scout.com's Greg Biggins notes that the 6-foot-5, 280-pounder is "a very aggressive player who finishes his blocks, can get to the second level and plays with the perfect amount of nastiness." Biggins adds that Moretti "explodes out of his stance and shows next level athleticism right now." Scout ranks him as the No. 103 recruit in the 2017 class, while Rivals sees him home at No. 79.

Colorado redshirt junior RB Phillip Lindsay (ankle) accounted for 149 total yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 20-10 win over UCLA.

Lindsay dealt with a left ankle injury in Colorado's last game, against Stanford. With a bye week to rest up, the 5-foot-8, 180-pound redshirt junior came out fresh in helping to subdue ULCA on Thursday. He carried the ball 24 times for 73 yards (3.0 YPC) and a touchdown, but while those numbers are modest enough on their own, he also came through in a huge way as a receiver (11 catches for 76 yards). Through nine games, Lindsay has now rushed for 818 yards and 10 touchdowns while catching 33 passes for 303 yards and an additional score. He has already set career bests for rushing yardage, rushing touchdowns, receptions and receiving yardage. Colorado closes out their 2016 regular season campaign with contests against Arizona, Washington State and Utah. Both of the latter two games will come at home. Should the Buffs win all three of those games, they will secure their first 10-win season since 2001.
