7:47 -- Marcus Stiggers 16 pass from Moschetti. After CU's second TD, Kansas took possession on own 20 and drove to CU 25, where, on fourth-and-four, Smith hit Joe Darden with pass intended for Winbush, and Buffs took over on downs.

:43.8 -- Joe Garcia 24 FG. Kansas took possession on own 20 and drove to Colorado's seven-yard line before stalling. Big play was gorgeous 44-yard pass from Smith to Harrison Hill, where Smith rolled right then threw across the field to a streaking Hill. Only other first down came on 13-yard pass from Smith to Hill on third-and-three from 26. (Colorado 27, Kansas 3).
