BOULDER, Colo. — The Colorado Buffaloes rolled to victory in their PAC12 home opener Saturday. They beat the Oregon State Beavers 47-6 in impressive fashion.

The Buffs are now 4-1 on the season, and 2-0 in PAC12 conference play.

Steven Montez looked great in his second start playing quarterback for Colorado. He completed 19 of 27 passes for 293 yards and three touchdowns. The redshirt freshman is playing in place of injured senior Sefo Liufau.

Wide receiver Shay Fields had an outstanding game. He caught all three of the touchdown passes to a tie a school record. Fields had a total of 7 receptions for 169 yards in the win.

Colorado’s 41-point margin of victory was the biggest the Buffaloes have had in a conference game since the team beat Kansas State 54-7 in 1992 while a member of the Big 8 conference.

Colorado plays the USC Trojans Saturday, October 8 in Los Angeles.
