Nelson Spruce has a career day in Colorado victory

Receiver Nelson Spruce continued his amazing streak to start the season in Colorado's 21-12 win against Hawai'i on Saturday afternoon. Spruce was again quarterback Sefo Liufau's favorite target and collected 13 receptions for 172 yards, both career highs. He set two school records by recording at least one touchdown in six consecutive games and also for total receptions in a single game.
