CU football takes learning opportunity into Week 3

CU football takes learning opportunity into Week 3

The Buffs look to bounce back from their loss to Texas A&M when they host Minnesota on Saturday at Folsom Field.

BOULDER, Colo. — The secret to a winning formula may just be as simple as 11 men working together as one.

“I think that as a program and as a team, the emphasis of just playing hard and playing for each other is really evident. You see that when you put the tape on and watch,” second-year head coach Karl Dorrell said. 

“This defense, they know what their identity is. That’s the style of play that I’ll continue to stress as long as I’m here, is to play a really aggressive, tough, edge defense, where you earn everything you get, and eventually in time, we’ll be generating a lot of turnovers so that our offense gets more chances with the football.”

And when they get those chances this time, junior tight end Brady Russell knows they can’t leave any points behind on the field.

“We know what we’re capable of on offense. We just need to put the pieces together to do what we’re capable of,” Russell said. “Coach hates that word ‘potential,’ and our potential is so high, but if you can’t reach it, then why does that matter? So we need to find ways to reach our potential and strive to be great all of the time.”

That potential will be put to the test when Colorado hosts Minnesota bright and early on Saturday.

Bridgewater stays calm, guides Broncos to 10-7 halftime lead on Jaguars

Bridgewater stays calm, guides Broncos to 10-7 halftime lead on Jaguars

After a poor opening series, Denver D adjusted well to Jaguars’ rookie QB Trevor Lawrence. Bridgewater has thrown for 184 yards and TD by halftime.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — To help acclimate for the early start time and long flight, Broncos head coach Vic Fangio flew his team here Friday evening, a night earlier than usual.

About halfway through the second quarter, there was reason to wonder if Fangio should have brought the team down Thursday.

The Jaguars gave the Denver D an immediate wakeup call at muggy, rainy TIAA Bank Field by efficiently marching 83 yards to score a touchdown on the opening drive. Rookie quarterback and No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence had plenty of protection and receivers running free as he completed 5 passes for 73 yards, including a beautiful 25-yard touchdown to Marvin Jones Jr., who beat cornerback Kyle Fuller on a sideline-and-go pattern.

The Broncos were down quickly, 7-0.

Luckily for the two-night visitors, quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has all the panic of a man in a deep slumber. The man has zero anxiety.

Bridgewater calmly answered the Jaguars’ opening statement by leading the Broncos on two sustain drives to put Denver up 10-7 at halftime. He had completed 15 of 21 for 184 yards at the break, including a 12-yard touchdown pass to Tim Patrick on the first play after the 2-minute warning.

Courtland Sutton was the Broncos’ leading receiver with 4 catches for 68 yards.

After Lawrence connected with Jones to put the Broncos on alert, Denver got a break on the ensuing drive when cornerback Shaquill Griffin was called for holding on third-and-long while he was covering tight end Albert Okwuegbunam well away from where Bridgewater threw an incompletion. The first down by penalty, and accurate Bridgewater passing, moved the Broncos to first and goal at the 10. At which point Bridgewater, who had stepped out of a sack for a completion earlier in the drive, couldn’t shake the pursuing edge rusher Josh Allen, who dropped the Broncos’ quarterback for a 16-yard loss.

Still, the Broncos broke Jags’ momentum with an 8 minute, 55 second drive that finished with a Brandon McManus 33-yard field goal.

The first quarter ended with Jacksonville up, 7-3, but the Denver D came through a three-and-out on its second series to settle things down.

It stayed that way until about 5 minutes left in the half. After rookie running back Javonte Williams was tackled behind the line of scrimmage, the Broncos’ drive was facing second and 16 at its own 14. At which point Bridgewater went to work. His best play was a 33-yard, touch pass completion to Sutton that moved the ball from the Broncos’ 40 to the Jaguars’ 27.

It occurred as Bridgewater was under pressure, then stepped up in the pocket to a clearing. He calmly saw Sutton scramble his route towards the end zone and Bridgewater hit him perfectly.

Bridgewater then completed a 15-yard pass to Kendall Hinton – his first NFL game as a receiver after breaking in memorably as an emergency quarterback last season – and, after the 2-minute warning, connected with an open Patrick on a drag route for the touchdown.

Jacksonville could have been leading but kicker Josh Lambo missed field goals from 52 and 48 yards. But the Denver D made the necessary adjustments on Lawrence, who was just 5 of 16 for 20 yards after his first drive.
