CU tops CSU 41-27 at Rocky Mountain Showdown
DENVER — The University of Colorado is celebrating a big win over in-state rival Colorado State Monday. The Buffaloes beat the Rams 41-27 in the Rocky Mountain Showdown at Sports Authority Field at Mile High Sunday.
It was Mike MacIntyre’s first game as head coach at Colorado, and he recorded his first victory as well. He’s only the second CU head coach to win his debut game during the past 81 years. Rick Neuheisel did it in 1995.
The win also ended an 8-game losing streak for Colorado dating back to last season.
