“I was anticipating [Air Force] to come back real hard and they did in the second half,” said CU head coach Sean Edris. “It was 18-13 and then the dam broke for us. Once we got into our rhythm and once we got into the pattern of play we liked to do, it’s very difficult for teams to stay with us because of our speed.”
It didn’t take long for the Buffs to use that speed as they jumped out to an early lead with Williams and Martin both scoring trys in the first five minutes of the match to give CU the 12-0 advantage. Colorado missed the conversion kick on the second score.
Austin Halley scored the first try for Air Force in the 20th minute while Sam Roller scored the second six minutes later to cut the CU lead to 15-10 after both conversion kicks missed wide.
Colorado has two games left in their fall schedule with them taking on the Wyoming Cowboys on Oct. 17 at 1 p.m. on the CU Business Field and against rival Colorado State on Oct. 30 at Infinity Park in Glendale, Colorado.
“It was real important for our team to build up some confidence, get a bunch of the guys involved, get some momentum going and hopefully take it against the University of Wyoming next weekend and CSU in two weeks,” Martin said.
