No. 10 Washington State 31, Colorado 7
Gardner Minshew II overcame a slow start and three fourthdown failures to lead Washington State past nose-diving Colorado.
The Cougars (9-1, 6-1 Pac12, No. 8 CFP) won their sixth straight, but it wasn’t as easy as expected against the Buffaloes (5-5, 2-5), who lost their fifth straight despite the return of star receiver Laviska Shenault Jr.
Minshew was 35 of 58 for 335 yards and two TDs. He had a 10-yard scoring run in the fourth quarter.
Shenault was rusty in his return from a right turf toe
