    The aftermath of last season's wild Colorado-West Virginia game remains firmly etched in Colorado running back Rodney Stewart's memory.

    Not only did he rush for a career-high 166 yards to spark the Buffaloes to a 17-14 upset victory in overtime, but he also learned the cardinal rule about celebrating on the field after a victory.

    “I took my helmet off and laid it down on the grass for a few moments,” Stewart said. “Then when I turned around, it was gone.”

    Stewart said he never found his helmet and never has faced any fallout from his school about the departure. But it still taught him about too much jubilation without accounting for all of his playing equipment.

    “Yeah, I've always kept my helmet pretty close by after that,” Stewart said with a chuckle.

    Last week someone said Speedy gives the offense the spark, the attitude that it needs. The kid just doesn't back down from anyone. He has the swagger that this team is missing. Play the kid.

    I do realize he was hurt early in the season, but he's good to go now. No reason he shouldn't get a healthy amount of carries against WVU.

    “You definitely get into a rhythm when you get the ball a lot,” Stewart said. “I just wanted to make the most of my chance to carry when it was there.”
