Colorado senior RB Phillip Lindsay ran for 68 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries in a 37-10 loss to Washington on Saturday.

He also had five catches for 32 yards. Lindsay (5'8/190) started off well, picking up first downs and rushing for a seven-yard touchdown to give the Buffaloes a 7-0 lead. After that, there wasn't much Lindsay could do against the impressive Washington front. He should see much bigger holes next week when Colorado takes on UCLA next week.

Colorado junior QB Steven Montez turned the ball over three times in a 37-10 loss to Washington on Saturday.

Montez (6'5/225) was much more effective on the ground (49 yards rushing), but that's not saying much. His receivers hurt him with some drops, but for the most part the junior signal-caller just didn't have it tonight against the impressive Huskies defense. It's a big loss for the Buffaloes, but they'll have a chance to bounce back next week when they take on UCLA.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline hears that Colorado sophomore CB Isaiah Oliver is receiving mostly Day 2 grades at this juncture.

Pauline is particularly interested in seeing how Oliver fares over the next two games, calling the next two contests "key" to his draft evaluation. He will be facing off with Washington this coming weekend, with UCLA to follow the weekend after. Those will be the most high-powered offenses that Oliver and crew have faced to date.

Colorado redshirt junior WR Devin Ross caught eight passes for 143 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 41-21 win over Northern Colorado.

Marvelous work from Ross on Saturday. The 5-foot-9, 180-pounder averaged 17.87 yards per reception and notched a little four-yard touchdown grab in the first quarter. He owns a 14-231-1 receiving line through three contests this season.
Sep 16 - 6:21 PM

Colorado junior QB Steven Montez completed 29-of-41 passes for 357 yards and four touchdowns in Saturday's 41-21 win over Northern Colorado.

Montez played point guard with the touchdowns, hitting up Devin Ross, Bryce Bobo, Shay Fields and Jay MacIntyre for scores in the easy victory. This was the gunslinger's best yardage-effort of the season and the first game in which he has thrown for more than one touchdown. He owns a 6/3 TD/INT ratio through three contests this season. The junior signal-caller will look for another big performance against Washington next weekend, though that figures to be an uphill climb.
Sep 16 - 5:32 PM

Colorado senior RB Phillip Lindsay rushed for 151 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries in Saturday's 41-21 win over Northern Colorado.

Lindsay wasn't slicing up Northern Colorado for big-yardage gains -- his long run went for 18 yards -- but he was cool and efficient in averaging 5.8 YPC in the victory. He has scored a rushing touchdown in each of Colorado's three games to date, with a pair of 100-yard rushing performances in that space.
Sep 16 - 5:28 PM

Colorado senior WR Shay Fields caught five passes for 110 yards in a 37-3 victory over Texas State on Saturday.

Colorado committed no turnovers and continued to dominate on defense, allowing a mere field goal after similarly holding Colorado State to three points last fall. Fields (5'11/185) has 11 receptions for 188 yards and a score through two games after posting a 56-893-9 line for the Buffaloes last year.
Sep 9 - 5:11 PM

Colorado senior WR Shay Fields caught six passes for 78 yards and a touchdown in a 17-3 victory over Colorado State on Friday.

Fields (5'11/185) made plenty of big plays last year (56/893/9) for the Buffaloes last year, and he was the go-to player for junior QB Steven Montez against the Rams tonight. His 31-yard touchdown catch with 13:53 left in the second quarter made it 17-0 and essentially put the game out of reach, and he made several grabs to help move the chains. Colorado has several other talented wideouts, but Fields is their top dog at the position.
Sep 2 - 12:08 AM

Colorado junior QB Steven Montez completed 21-of-29 passes for 202 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions.

Montez was handed the keys after the graduation of Sefo Liufau, and in his first start, the 6-foot-5, 225-pound quarterback looked like he should probably still have a learner's permit. He forced several throws, and he was fortunate to end up with only two picks. His touchdown pass was a 31-yard strike to Shay Fields, giving the Buffs a 17-0 lead with 13:53 in the second quarter. It wasn't horrific game by any stretch of the imagination, but considering the conference he plays in, he'll need to be better if Colorado is going to contend in the Pac-12 North.
Sep 2 - 12:01 AM

Colorado senior RB Phillip Lindsay picked up 140 yards on 19 carries with a touchdown on Friday in a 17-3 victory over Colorado State.

Lindsay (5'8/190) also had two catches for 16 yards. Usually players who run for 1,252 yards and 16 touchdowns on teams that go 10-2 in the regular season don't go underrated. Lindsay seems to be an exception to that rule. He gashed the Rams defense, and his 45-yard touchdown run to make it 7-0 Buffaloes in the middle of the first quarter was a thing of beauty. Colorado lost a great deal of talent off of the Pac-12 South Division winner, but they still have their best player in Lindsay, and that gives them a chance to win.
Sep 1 - 11:51 PM

Colorado redshirt junior RB Kyle Evans (hip) has been ruled out for Friday's game against Colorado State.

Evans dislocated his hip in a March scrimmage and subsequently underwent surgery. While he was able to begin practicing again midway through preseason camp, the Buffs will hold him out for the opener to give him an extra week to rest up. He should be able to return to action in relatively short order barring setback.
Sep 1 - 7:55 PM

Indefinitely suspended Colorado sophomore S Anthony Julmisse was arrested on Saturday and charged with one count of robbery, first-degree criminal trespass of a vehicle, criminal mischief and careless driving.

The robbery and criminal-trespass charges are felonies. Julmisse was already suspended indefinitely in relation to a July altercation which led to charges of third-degree assault, domestic violence and a pair of harassment counts. This most recent arrest could very well lead to Julmisse's dismissal.
Aug 22 - 5:49 PM

Colorado senior RB Donovan Lee (ankle) could potentially take a redshirt for the coming season.

Lee (5'9/175) sustained a broken ankle during spring practice and remains on the recovery trail. If he were to redshirt during the upcoming campaign, he would have one year eligibility remaining to wrap up his career in 2018. Lee's a versatile player who has tried his hand at receiver, running back and corner, but is not considered integral to the Buffs' offensive attack.
Aug 17 - 12:28 PM

Colorado redshirt junior RB Kyle Evans (hip) participated in practice on Monday.

Evans is working his way back from hip surgery after dislocating his in a March scrimmage. The hope all along for Colorado was that he would be able to return by mid-August. Mission accomplished on that front. Assuming he is physically capable of taking the field, he will be working in a backup role behind Phillip Lindsay this season.
Aug 15 - 2:19 PM

Colorado sophomore RB Beau Bisharat admitted that he "didn't know the plays very well last season."

Bisharat (6'2/215) does not foresee that being an issue this time around, saying, "This year it's a big advantage for me just knowing the plays and knowing how to read a play or when to be patient and when not to be patient." He spent the bulk of his freshman campaign working as a blocking back and saw just 15 carries for 45 yards as an offensive contributor. He is looking to work his way into a backup role behind Phillip Lindsay in preseason camp and has potential as a short-yardage option.
