Colorado tips Mountaineers
Buffaloes spring upset in OT
Aric Goodman made a 25-yard field goal in overtime to give Colorado a 17-14 victory over No. 21 West Virginia last night, making the Buffaloes 3-0 for the first time since 2004.
West Virginia (1-2) had the ball first in overtime, but Pat McAfee's 23-yard field goal attempt clanged off the left upright. Colorado took over and picked up one first down before turning to Goodman.
Cody Hawkins threw two touchdown passes - both in the first quarter - and Rodney Stewart rushed for 166 yards, the most ever by a Colorado freshman.
West Virginia quarterback Pat White ran for two touchdowns and 148 yards, and Noel Devine finished with 133 yards on the ground.
The Mountaineers have lost consecutive road games for the first time since 2003.
Pryor's time approachingWhen he signed his letter of intent with Ohio State March 19, Terrelle Pryor was praised as the Buckeyes' quarterback of the future. The future is now.
Pryor will not attend his first college class until Wednesday, but he is the front-runner of the week for coach Jim Tressel in the Buckeyes' QB derby.
In the wake of Ohio State's 35-3 loss to top-ranked Southern California last weekend, Tressel came away impressed with Pryor and down on fifth-year senior and second-year starter Todd Boeckman.
Tressel said during preparation for tomorrow's game against Troy that Pryor would get most of the snaps with the top offensive unit in practice this week. Tressel said he did not know who would start against Troy. Boeckman has gone 14-3 as the starter.
