Colorado Wins Rocky Mountain Showdown

By  | 

Josh Smith bounced back from a rocky start with a 93-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and Colorado beat Colorado State 38-17 on Sunday night in what might have been their last game at Invesco Field.

Many fans surely tuned in expecting to see Smith's nephew, Darrell Scott, the Buffaloes' highly-touted freshman tailback who was considered by several scouting services as the best back in the nation last year.

Scott gained 50 yards on a dozen carries and leaped over the pile for a 1-yard TD to cap the scoring in the closing minutes. But this night belonged to his uncle as the speedy Smith racked up 189 total yards.
