Colorado leads Washington State 13-10 at halftime, despite being outgained 220 yards to 122.
The most obvious difference? The Cougars have been flagged seven times for 90 yards. The Buffaloes have just two for 20 yards.
But the Cougars can't make key plays in Colorado territory.
Quarterback Marshall Lobbestael threw his interception on fourth down at the Buffs' 34-yard line. The Cougs also were stopped on a fourth and short in Colorado territory. And they couldn't convert a third-and-1 on the Buffs' 11-yard line late in the second quarter, which forced them to settle for a field goal.
Meanwhile, Colorado quarterback Tyler Hansen threw his touchdown pass on a third and 2 from the Cougars' 9-yard line. Hansen only completed 8 of 14 passes for 90 yards in the half, but that was a key play.
