Colorado's Paul Richardson scores twice in return to competitive play

Colorado receiver Paul Richardson faced a team other than his own Sunday for the first time since tearing his ACL in April 2012. Speed and agility clearly were not an issue for the redshirt junior as Connor Wood found him for an 82-yard touchdown just minutes into the game, putting the Buffs on the scoreboard first against Colorado State at Mile High in Denver. Richardson also sealed the 41-27 win with a 75-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.

Even more notable than the long scoring runs? Richardson cuts right once he reaches the end zone on his first trip, putting undue pressure on his repaired left knee and sending a message to defenses everywhere: Paul Richardson is back.
