(Saturday, November 13th)

Final Score: Colorado 38, Kansas State 31

Boulder, CO (Sports Network) - Ron Monteilh hauled in a 64-yard touchdown pass from Joel Klatt with five seconds remaining in regulation, lifting the Colorado Buffaloes to a thrilling 38-31 victory over the Kansas State Wildcats in Big 12 action from Folsom Stadium.

Klatt threw for 184 yards and two touchdowns on 14-of-26 passing, while Bobby Purify led Colorado (6-4, 3-4 Big12) on the ground with 155 rushing yards and two scores.

Allen Webb paced Kansas State (4-6, 2-5) in defeat, throwing for 140 yards and rushing for 103 yards and a touchdown. Darren Sproles was held to just 55 yards on 15 carries, but he was able to score a touchdown in the losing effort for the Wildcats.

The Buffaloes scored the first 10 points of the contest, as Klatt scored on a one-yard quarterback keeper midway through the first quarter and Mason Crosby nailed a 51-yard field goal at the start of the second period.

Kansas State responded by scoring 10 unanswered points, with Sproles finding the end zone on a one-yard run and Joe Rheem hitting a 52-yard kick minutes later before the end of the first half.

Purify opened up the scoring in the second half, rumbling into the end zone from three yards out, which gave Colorado a 17-10 lead.

The Buffaloes extended their advantage to 24-10 when Klatt hit Joe Klopfenstein with a five-yard touchdown pass midway through the third quarter.

K-State was able to creep within a touchdown following an 11-yard scoring run by Webb near the start of the final period.

The Wildcats then tied the game up at 24-24 following a 37-yard interception return for a touchdown by Ted Sims.

Colorado retook the lead in the contest with less than four minutes remaining in regulation, as Purify plunged into the end zone from two yards away.

Jermaine Moreiera hauled in a 17-yard touchdown pass from Kansas State's Dylan Meier with less than a minute left in regulation, tying the contest at 31-31.

The Wildcats would get one more play off following the game-wining touchdown reception by Monteilh, but the desperation attempt failed and Colorado held on for the seven-point victory.

With the loss, Kansas State will not be eligible for a bowl game for the first time in 12 years.
