Bryce Givens and Max Tuioti-Mariner returned to practice with the Buffs today. No word on when either will return to the lineup on game day.
Great news to have both come back this week. Coach Hawkins said "we will see" when asked if Givens will play this week. Givens left last week before the Wyoming game to deal with some personal issues. Those issues were not made public. Tuioti-Mariner is returning from his third torn ACL in as many years. Max started as a freshman last year before being knocked out early in the season with his second knee injury.
Full Game Highlights - Colorado Buffaloes vs Wyoming Cowboys
Pretty cool platform on CUBuffs.com to watch the full Wyoming game as well as highlights. The defense definitely made some good plays out there...hopefully they keep Ben Burney in at safety. I really like what he brought to the field.

Jeff Bzdelik compared freshman guard Alec Burks -- a skinny, 6-foot-6 swish machine -- to the program`s all-time leading scorer during a teleconference with reporters this summer. The arrival of Missouri`s reigning high school player of the year to Boulder should, if nothing else, provide a spark to a CU team that finished last in the Big 12 in scoring the past two seasons running Bzdelik`s system. Believe it or not, Dan Hawkins and Aric Goodman deserve credit for an assist on this one. Burks committed to CU a year ago after the Buffs` nationally televised overtime victory over West Virginia at Folsom Field. The Buffs next face West Virginia on Oct. 1. "I came on my visit and I just loved it here," said Burks, who also considered playing for Kansas State. "They had a football game on ESPN and we won and everybody rushed the field. I wanted to be a part of that experience, so I committed here."
Colorado: A: A simple defensive plan led to a shutout for a Buffaloes defense that had been gashed for 54 points against Toledo and was allowing an average of 500 yards per game before their victory over Wyoming. The offense showed some growth, too, with the strong running of Rodney Stewart keying the victory.
Colorado’s Aric Goodman and Matt DiLallo are off to good starts in 2009. Goodman is 3-for-4 on field goals after going 5-for-14 in 2008. DiLallo is averaging 43 yards per punt, and his net average is 37.4. Those numbers are up from last year’s 40.5 and 34.
