For the fourth time in six outings this season, Colorado receiver Paul Richardson topped the 100-yard mark. He finished with eight catches for 122 yards, with 60 of those coming on a touchdown pass in the second quarter.
"Once I started running, I wanted to split it and just go down the field but I didn't have that gear," he said. "So, I was smart and I just cut across the field and outran the defender's angle."
That touchdown was Richardson's 11th career play of 50 yards or more. He has averaged 55 yards on his six touchdowns this year.
Richardson has 43 catches for 782 yards and six touchdowns this season, putting him on pace for 86 catches, 1,564 yards and 12 touchdowns. CU's single-season records are 78 catches (D.J. Hackett in 2003), 1,149 yards (Charles Johnson in 1992) and 11 touchdowns (Derek McCoy in 2003).
