Despite being badly outgained, Colorado edges Washington

Brendon Lewis ran for a touchdown, Jack Lamb returned a fumble for another score, and the Colorado Buffaloes beat the Washington Huskies 20-17 in Boulder, Colo., on Saturday.

Colorado (4-7, 3-5 Pac-12 Conference) won despite being outgained 426-183.

For Washington, Dylan Morris was 33-for-52 passing for 387 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions, Rome Odunze had nine receptions for 68 yards and a TD, and Ja’Lynn Polk caught two passes for 60 yards and another score.

Washington turned the ball over four times.

The Buffaloes got on the board first with a 35-yard field goal by Cole Becker early in the first quarter. The Huskies (4-7, 3-5) drove to the Colorado 3 on their first possession but fumbled, and Lamb scooped it up and ran 88 yards for a touchdown and a 10-0 lead with 2:37 left in the quarter.

Peyton Henry kicked a 30-yard field goal to cap a 12-play, 59-yard drive for Washington early in the second period to make it 10-3.

On the Huskies’ next drive, Morris hit Odunze for an 8-yard touchdown and a 10-10 tie with 2:11 left in the first half.

Washington had a few opportunities to take the lead in the third quarter, but mistakes kept the score tied. The Huskies drove to the Colorado 36, but Morris threw an interception to end the drive, and on their next possession Henry missed a 49-yard field-goal attempt.

A fumble on Washington’s 7-yard line led to a 22-yard field goal by Becker and a 13-10 Colorado lead with 14:35 left in the game.

The Huskies again marched down the field and were in a position to tie or go ahead when Morris threw his second interception of the day deep in Buffaloes’ territory.

Colorado took advantage of the turnover, driving 80 yards in 14 plays capped by a 2-yard touchdown run by Lewis and a 20-10 lead with 4:05 remaining.

The Huskies struck quickly when Morris connected with Polk on a 55-yard touchdown pass with 2:30 left to end the scoring.

Washington had another chance with two minutes left but turned the ball over on downs.
