    LAKE PLACID, N.Y. —The University of Colorado enjoyed a second dominant day in Nordic competition here Friday, and in the process, wrestled the lead back from rival Utah as the 62nd NCAA Skiing Championships are now three-quarters complete.

    The Buffaloes led the Utes by 24 points after Wednesday’s freestyle races, but Utah had the better go of it in the giant slalom Thursday to take a four-point lead at the midway point. CU countered with five top nine finishes in the classic cross country races, one more than the Utes, and jumped back into the lead with 388 total points to Utah’s 381.

    The seven-point is tied for the third closest margin between the top two teams with two events remaining in the last 25 championships; Vermont led eventual champion by two points in 2009; CU led by five in 2006 before running away with the title in 2006; and Utah held a seven-point margin in 1997 en route to the title.
