DENVER (AP) -- Greg Henderson scored on a 53-yard fumble return in the fourth quarter and Connor Wood threw three touchdown passes -- two to speedster Paul Richardson -- to help Colorado beat Colorado State 41-27 on Sunday in Mike MacIntyre's coaching debut for the Buffaloes.
Wood often connected with Richardson, who was back on the field after missing last season because of a torn left ACL. Richardson finished with 10 catches for 208 yards. He had an 82-yard TD catch on Colorado's first pass play and sealed it with a 75-yard grab late in the fourth.
The Buffs have had four 200-yard receiving games in school history, two by Richardson. He had a school-record 284 yards receiving against California in 2011.
Wood was steady in the pocket all day, throwing for 400 yards.
Joe Hansley highlighted a strong showing on special teams for the Rams by scoring on a 74-yard punt return. Kapri Bibbs added two TDs, including one set up by Thomas Coffman's 84-yard kickoff return.
