    [h=3]Colorado Daily – Sacramento State[/h] September 3rd
    Positives from the CSU loss
    Lost in the agony of the 22-17 loss to Colorado State in the Rocky Mountain Showdown were some positives, at least statistically.
    *- CU punter Darragh O’Neill had six punts for 284 yards, a 47.3 yard average. O’Neill’s efforts places him atop the Pac-12, and 8th in the nation.
    - As a team, the Buffs’ 46.33 net punting average is second in the Pac-12, and 5th in the nation.
    - Colorado ranked 115th in the nation in kickoff returns in 2011; after the first game, the Buffs are ranked 26th nationally.
    - Colorado ranked 102nd in the nation in total defense in 2011; after the first game, the Buffs are ranked 37th.
    - Defensive lineman Chidera Uzo-Diribe had two sacks against Colorado State, tying him for 3rd nationally in that category. Uzo-Diribe has three tackles for loss overall, tying him for 8th nationally (Linebacker Derrick Webb, with two tackles for loss, is tied for 29th).
    - Wide receiver Nelson Spruce had eight catches for 64 yards and a touchdown against the Rams, with the eight catches*putting him in a tie*for 17th nationally.
    - Freshman defensive back Kenneth Crawley is ranked 3rd in the Pac-12 in punt returns, and 27th nationally. (Crawley had 38 yards in punt returns against Colorado State. Last season, Rodney Stewart led the team in punt returns, with 22 yards … for the year!).
