CU Buffs offense sputters in “complete beatdown” at hands of Minnesota

BOULDER – The first play of the game set the tone. With Colorado quarterback Brendon Lewis lined up in a shotgun formation behind center, a high snap deflected off his hands, forcing the freshman to fall on the ball for a 10-yard loss. CU was already going backwards, and it didn’t get much better from there. Controlling the game from start to finish, Minnesota steamrolled the reeling CU Buffs, 30-0, here Saturday. “That was a complete, I would say, ‘beatdown’ in every phase,’ ” CU coach Karl Dorrell said. The litany of negatives for CU piled up as the afternoon dragged on. + A 1-2 to start a season for the first time since 2014, when CU finished 2-10. + Outgained 441-63, with the 63 total yards the eighth lowest in school history and fewest since gaining 43 against Oklahoma in the 2004 Big 12 title game. + Shut out for the first time at home since a 48-0 loss to Stanford on Nov.
