October 10, 2009 No. 2 Texas 38, Colorado 14
Texas used three non-offensive touchdowns and 20 Colorado penalties to turn a 14-10 halftime deficit into a 38-14 victory.
The Colorado defense held the Texas offense 200 yards below its average, but could not overcome a blocked punt for a touchdown, a 92-yard interception return for a touchdown, and a punt return for a touchdown, as Colorado fell to 1-4 on the season.
The entire recap, plus notes, records, and locker room quotes will be posted early afternoon on Sunday (assuming my flights are on time!)
PLUS - You won’t want to miss my essay, inspired by a plaque on a monument outside the statehouse in Austin. You may not believe it, and the NCAA may disagree, but, using logic given to us by the people of Texas, Colorado actually WON the game on Saturday!!
