TUCSON, Ariz. – Jarek Broussard ran 301 yards and Colorado’s defense produced big games in the second half of Saturday to lead the Buffaloes to a 24-13 win over Arizona on the Wildcats’ home turf.
CU improved with the win (3: 0, Pac-12) to 4: 0 and continued to fight for a Pac-12-Süd title. Arizona, who lost their eleventh game in a row, fell 4-0.
Broussard finished the race 301 yards over 25 runs, while the buffs ended at 407 yards on the ground (499 total). . It was Broussard’s fourth 100-yard game in a row, making him the first CU player in history to score at least 100 yards in his first four games.
CU’s defense had an interception in the end zone in the second half and a stop towards the end of the fourth quarter to secure the win.
HOW IT HAPPENED: Colorado started slowly on either side of the ball as Arizona scored three direct hits from an opening trick, while CU’s first four offensive holdings resulted in three punts and one fumble.
But after the Wildcats’ second field goal at the beginning of the second quarter brought UA 13-0 up, the Buffs finally flipped the switch.
The CU defense began the reversal of luck by forcing a punt in Arizona after Colorado’s Isaiah Lewis and Carson Wells teamed up to sack UA’s Will Plummer in third in midfield.
It only took the Buffs four games to go 95 yards for a touchdown. Broussard opened the ride with a 75-yard gallop downfield before Ashaad Clayton finished the march with four rushes for 20 yards, including a 1-yard touchdown run. Evan Price’s PAT shortened Arizona’s lead to 13: 7, 6:38 was halved.
Colorado’s defense then forced a threesome with another sack as Lewis and Terrance Lang brought Plummer into third.
That opened the door to a 78-yard five-game scoring ride. Broussard made the big game again, walking 59 yards to the Arizona 4-yard line. Clayton finished the run again with a 4-yard breakout to the end zone, and Price’s second PAT gave CU the lead by 3:00, 14-13, which ended the scoring for the half.
CU then dodged a ball early in the second half when Arizona’s Anthony Pandy intercepted Noyer and gave UA at Colorado 43 to possession. But the Buffs defense went up again, forcing a punt for another third sack, and the Buffs immediately drove 80 yards for a touchdown. Noyer took the big win on the trip, recording 54 yards on a run, then topping the march with a 2-yard scoring dive. Price ‘PAT put Colorado in the lead 21-13, 9:22 in the third period.
The defense of CU then took over. Nigel Bethel intercepted a plummer pass in the end zone – after it was tipped by Terrance Lang – to stop a drive. Colorado then forced another punt, only to see a Colorado go deep into the Arizona area that Noyer’s second interception of the game ended, back to Pandy.
But the defense still had a big stand, halting the Wildcats after driving from the 7-yard line in Colorado to a first-and-goal. Linebacker Nate Landman had a big problem with the loss in third place and Mekhi Blackmon broke up a pass in the end zone in fourth place to stop the ride and protect CU’s 21-13 lead.
CU then took over and, thanks to another long Broussard run, walked almost the entire length of the field. Year two ran 72 yards to the Arizona 8-yard line, and the Buffs landed a 19-yard price field goal for a 24-13 lead with only 2:26 left on the clock.
NEXT UP: The Buffs will host Utah on Friday at 7:30 p.m.. m. Game (FS1) at Folsom Field.
