McKnight leads Colorado to 24-3 win over CSU

DENVER (AP) - Scotty McKnight became Colorado's career receptions leader with a 27-yard touchdown grab that sparked the Buffaloes to a 24-3 season-opening win over archrival Colorado
State in the annual Rocky Mountain Showdown on Saturday.

McKnight's 168th career catch broke the mark set by Michael Westbrook from 1991-94. The senior finished with six catches for 78 yards.

The Buffaloes got off to a good start in what will be a crucial year for coach Dan Hawkins, who has yet to post a winning season since arriving in Boulder from Boise State in 2006.

With three interceptions, freshman quarterback Pete Thomas had a rough debut for the Rams, who lost their last nine games of last season to finish 3-9, same as the Buffaloes.
