CU takes down Stanford, 10-5, becomes bowl eligible

STANFORD, Calif. — It was a low-scoring game, but it didn’t matter as the University of Colorado took down Stanford, 10-5, on Saturday afternoon. With the win, the Buffaloes become eligible for a bowl game.

It’s the first time the Buffaloes have been eligible for a bowl game since 2007. It’s also the first time the Buffaloes have beaten Stanford since 1990.

The only touchdown of the game came early in the second quarter with CU quarterback Sefo Liufau throwing a pass to Shay Fields for a 15-yard score to make it 7-3.

CU extended its lead with a 22-yard field goal from kicker Chris Graham in the late fourth quarter.

And just when it was almost over, Stanford got a safety to make the final score 10-5.

With the win, the Buffaloes stayed tied for first place in the Pac-12 South Division with a 4-1 record and 6-2 overall.
