Post Game Celebration Thread I Guess: Colorado Buffaloes Beat Texas A&M 35 - 34


Well, the Buffs win. Colorado outscored Texas A&M 25 to 13 in the second half to win after falling behind in the first half. The Buffaloes offense showed up against the 98th ranked defense, totaling 439 yards on offense while holding a top Texas A&M offense to under 400 yards.

Colorado had 12 minutes more of possession and was 50% on third down. It was a very solid offense performance if you take away the first quarter of play.

Tyler Hansen was effective going 21 - 32, 271 yards a touchdown and an interception outplaying Texas A&M QB Jerrod Johnson. The key today, though, was the emergence of WR Markques Simas. Simas had his best day as a Colorado Buffalo. He provided the big play threat that this offense had been missing, going for 7 catches and 135 yards, good for 19.3 yards a catch. He certainly filled that big play role that was missing from the offense the past four years.

It was a good win for the Buffs as they overcame another touchdown given up by the special teams. Certainly bittersweet as Buff fans are left in flux with this program. Colorado is now 3 - 6, 2 - 3 in the conference. Next week Colorado is at Iowa State.
