Photos: Rams’ rushing attack overwhelms Buffs in Rocky Mountain Showdown

The Colorado Buffaloes jumped out to an early lead in Friday’s Rocky Mountain Showdown, but the Colorado State Rams then ran them over with their powerful two-pronged rushing attack.

CU lost 31-17, despite promising performances from quarterback Sefo Liufau (241 yards and 2 touchdowns) and wide receiver Nelson Spruce (104 yards and 2 touchdowns). The Rams finished with 266 yards on the ground, with 139 of those coming from recent Alabama transfer Dee Hart.

Up next for the Buffaloes is a visit to the east coast to play the University of Massachusetts next Saturday at 1 p.m.
