After defeating New Hampshire 45-14, the Colorado Buffaloes are 3-0 for the second time in the last decade. Led by running back Travon McMillian, CU cruised to a victory at Folsom Field Saturday afternoon.

The senior running back rushed for 162 yards and found the end zone twice in the blowout win. McMillian’s second touchdown was a 75-yard touchdown run to give Colorado a 35-0 lead early in the third quarter.

Along with a strong performance from the graduate transfer running back, wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. found the end zone again this week. Shenault finished the game with five receptions for 67 yards and CU’s only receiving touchdown. On the season, Shenault now has 21 receptions for 381 yards.

Tony Brown led the Buffs in receiving with five catches for 80 yards. It was a quiet day in general for the CU passing offense though. Quarterback Steven Montez completed 14-of-19 pass attempts and finished the victory with 166 passing yards, one touchdown and one interception.

It may have been a modest outing for Montez in the passing game, but the Buffaloes ran the football with tremendous efficiency Saturday. CU racked up 311 yards on the ground and four different ball carriers had at least 25 rushing yards.

The Buffaloes have a bye next weekend and will open up the conference portion of the 2018 schedule against UCLA at home on Sept. 28. The Friday night showdown is slated to kick off at 7 p.m. and will be televised on FS1.
