Colorado beats Northern Colorado 41-21

Posted: Updated:

Steven Montez threw for a career-high 357 yards and four touchdowns, helping Colorado beat Northern Colorado 41-21 on Saturday in the first meeting between the schools since 1934.
  
Montez spread around the wealth by throwing TD strikes to Devin Ross , Shay Fields, Bryce Bobo and Jay MacIntyre. Colorado (3-0) turned the ball over twice deep in Northern Colorado territory to keep things interesting.
  
Phillip Lindsay rushed for 151 yards and a score on a day when the defense struggled. The Buffaloes had two starters ejected for targeting - free safety Afolabi Laguda in the second quarter and defensive lineman Chris Mulumba in the fourth quarter.
  
Jacob Knipp had 202 yards passing and three TDs, including two to Alex Wesley. The Bears (1-1) took advantage of the extra time to prepare after their game last weekend at No. 24 Florida was canceled because of Hurricane Irma.
  
Northern Colorado scored on the opening possession - the first touchdown the Buffaloes have allowed this season. The Bears hung tight until Montez's 14-yard TD pass to MacIntyre made it a 38-21 game with 8:35 remaining.
