    The Stanford Cardinal came to Boulder on Sept. 6, 1990 unranked and undaunted, even as a 20½-point underdog. Colorado lt;br />was ranked No. 6, but it didn't matter to the visitors, who rolled to a 14-0 lead and silenced Folsom Field.

    That was the first CU game I attended.

    I didn't read the article, but why are they posting this now? It's either 20 years late, or they've confused bay area Pac teams again.

    They are re-visiting all the games of the 1990 season, when CU won the National Championship.

    Thus the re-visit to the jerseys, etc.

    i was at that game as well. Stanford WR drops what would have likely been a winning TD in the south EZ....pretty late in the game IIRC.

    I remember hollerin' in the streets after the game, and some hippy-dude kindly approached me and explained that nothing in this world mattered less than a football score.

    He really lacked perspective.
