|COLLEGE FOOTBALL: West Virginia Runs Past Colorado
|MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- Noel Devine ran for a career-high 220 yards and a touchdown, leading West Virginia to a 35-24 victory over Colorado Thursday night.
Jarrett Brown threw two touchdown passes and redshirt freshman fullback Ryan Clarke ran for two fourth-quarter scores for West Virginia (3-1).
Both offenses played sloppily despite having an extra week to prepare. West Virginia lost four fumbles and intercepted three of Cody Hawkins' passes.
Hawkins threw two touchdown passes, but Colorado (1-3) managed three total points on four other drives that went inside the 30.
Colorado now faces the impossible task of meeting coach Dan Hawkins' offseason directive of "10 wins, no excuses." The Buffaloes would have to win the remainder of their games, including a bowl, starting next week at No. 2 Texas.
