BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — The Colorado Buffaloes used touchdowns from their defense and special teams to snap a four-game skid with a 34-0 win over winless Arizona.

The loss extended the Wildcats’ school record losing streak to 18 games dating to a 35-30 win at Colorado in 2019.

The Wildcats had played better of late but this one got away from them in the third quarter when they surrendered a blocked punt and an interception for touchdowns on back-to-back possessions. When the Buffaloes offense got the ball back they got a 62-yard touchdown pass to put the game away.
