The Seminoles beat Colorado 16-6 Saturday night behind Gary Cismesia’s three field goals and a defense that nearly handed the Buffaloes their first shutout in almost two decades.
The Seminoles thwarted the Buffs by using their safeties to shut down the run and relying on their speedy cornerbacks to take away Hawkins’ downfield receiving targets.
Colorado finished with minus-27 yards on 25 carries and Hawkins threw 53 times, completing 34 of them for 306 yards with one TD and two interceptions.
Bowden had said he wasn’t concerned about the altitude in the Seminoles’ first trip into the Rockies, and he was right not to worry.
