Colorado Buffaloes Vs. Utah Utes - Second Half "Do You Believe In 2-Win Miracles?" Game Thread

You know what? As bad has this season has been, sending the Utes home with a loss would be fantastic.

The Buffaloes defense has held fast even though for most of the first half the offense was doing everything they could to give away the game. Nick Hirschman threw two killer interceptions and Donta Abron had a lost fumble but the Utes could only manage 17 points.

The Colorado offense finally seemed to get it together on the final drive of the half, taking the ball 78 yards in 12 plays to bring the game back within three.

Let's go Buffs! Get us that second win and close the season on a high note.
