BOULDER, Colo. — The Colorado Buffaloes dominated the Arizona State Sun Devils in a 40-16 win at Folsom Field on Saturday.

Following last week’s loss to USC, the Buffs were hoping to get back on track for their homecoming game, and they did – in a very big way.

CU wasted no time trying to get back on track as they marched to the end zone with a 16-yard TD run by Kyle Evans to give the Buffs the early lead on the first possession.

ASU tied it up after a Jay MacIntyre fumble that eventually ended in a touchdown.

The game would stay tied in the early second quarter as both teams scored a field goal to make it 10-10.

The Buffs weren’t done, they’d top off the half with two additional touchdowns, a run from QB Sefo Liufau and a 13-yard run from Phillip Lindsay, giving CU the lead 23-10 going into halftime.

The second half started big too as Phillip Lindsay ran 75-yards for his second TD of the night to open up the half to extend the CU lead to 30-10.

The rest of the third quarter saw field goals from both teams to make it 33-13 going into the fourth quarter.

In the fourth quarter, ASU kicker Zane Gonzalez made a 59-yard field goal, which is the second-longest in Folsom Field history. The longest was a 60-yarder made by Mason Crosby in 2004.

Lindsay ended the game with his 3rd touchdown of the night, a 4-yard run to make the final score 40-16.
