    Injury update
    Colorado sustained no significant injuries against Colorado State, with only “normal bumps and bruises” reported.
    However, it was announced before the game that senior safety Terrel Smith, listed in the fall camp depth chart as the backup to Parker Orms at strong safety, will miss the 2013 season. Smith will undergo shoulder surgery, and will be out until spring. Smith still has a red-shirt season available, and will return in 2014 as a fifth-year senior
    Two players suspended
    Sophomore defensive end Samson Kafovalu and freshman wide receiver Jeff Thomas were suspended for the game against Colorado State for undisclosed violations of team rules.
    Kafovalu was listed on the depth chart for the Colorado State as third defensive tackle (after being listed in the pre-fall depth chart as the No. 1 left defensive end). Thomas, meanwhile, was listed as the third “X” wide receiver, behind Nelson Spruce and Tyler McCulloch.

    Just a few more numbers from the 2013 Rocky Mountain Showdown
    Before we leave the Rams and focus on the Bears, a few fun numbers to take away from the 41-27 Colorado victory.
    The last time:
    - Colorado had over 500 yards of total offense in a game – the win over Washington State last fall … 509 yards Sunday.
    - Colorado had over 400 yards passing in a game – the Cal game in 2011 … 400 yards Sunday.
    - An opponent had less than 100 yards rushing in a game … the win over Washington State last fall … 94 yards Sunday.
    - Colorado had a turnover free game – last season’s game against Sacramento State.
    - A player had two touchdowns receiving … Toney Clemons v. USC in 2011 … Paul Richardson had two touchdowns Sunday.
    - A player had three touchdown passes … Tyler Hansen v. Cal in 2011 … Connor Wood had three touchdowns Sunday.
    - A player had 400 yards of total offense … Tyler Hansen v. Cal in 2011 … Connor Wood had 409 Sunday.
    - Colorado had a fumble recovery for a touchdown … Josh Moten v. Arizona State in 2011 … Greg Henderson had a 53-yard fumble return for a touchdown Sunday.
    - A player had a 50-yard field goal … Will Oliver had a 52-yarder v. Cal in 2011 … Oliver tied that mark Sunday.
    -*A player had four field goals in a game … Will Oliver had four v. Cal*in 2011 … Oliver tied that mark Sunday.

    Team statistics are skewed after only one game, but it’s nice to see Colorado break out of the 100′s in many national statistical rankings. The official numbers for the 2013 “season” are out, and we can take a look at last season’s numbers and check out CU’s improvement.
    Team statistics:
    - Scoring offense: 17.8 in 2012 (117th); … 41.0 (27th)
    - Scoring defense: 46.0 in 2012 (120th); … 27.0 (61st)
    - Total offense: 302.8 in 2012 (116th); … 509.0 (25th)
    - Total defense: 488.5 in 2012 (117th); … 295.0 (32nd)
    - Rushing offense: 110.3 in 2012 (109th); … 109.0 (83rd)
    - Rushing defense: 226.0 in 2012 (115th); … 94.0 (29th)
    - Passing offense: 192.5 in 2012 (96th); … 400.0 (9th)
    - Passing defense: 262.5 in 2012 (97th); … 201.0 (55th)
    We could go on and on (while quietly neglecting to check out kickoff return defense and punt return defense), but you get the picture. Again, one game does not a season make … but the future does look a great deal brighter than it did a just a few days ago.
