Star of the game

Colorado quarterback Jordan Webb absorbed six sacks and left for one series after a hard hit in the fourth quarter, but he completed 29 of 42 passes with one interception for 345 yards and two touchdowns.

Play of the game

Webb ran for a touchdown on a fourth-and-goal draw play with 9 seconds left, and when Will Oliver kicked the extra point, Colorado had a one-point victory.

Turning point

With 8:07 left, Washington State had a 31-14 lead and a fourth-and-three situation at the Colorado 19. The Cougars opted to go for it, Connor Halliday was intercepted at the CU 8, and on their next series, the Buffs clicked for a 70-yard touchdown pass.

Injury report

WSU OT Wade Jacobson left with what appeared to be a shoulder injury (WSU coach Mike Leach does not discuss injuries).

He said it

"Physically, we're not that bad. But mentally, we're afraid to be successful. We're afraid to win." — WSU coach Mike Leach.

This week

Oregon, at CenturyLink Field, Saturday, 7:30 p.m.

By the numbers

1 Touchdown WSU has scored in four fourth quarters in 2012.

2 Connor Halliday's 60 pass attempts was second in history to Drew Bledsoe's 66 in 1992 against Montana.

46 Yards Marquess Wilson needs to break the school career receiving record of 2,756 by Brandon Gibson (2005-08).
