Nov 29, 2014

Sefo Liufau's connection with Nelson Spruce has been outstanding all season for Colorado and was on display again for the Buffaloes in a 38-34 loss to the Utes, as seen on Pac-12 Networks.

Halfway through the third quarter with the Buffs trailing 28-27, Liufau threw a 66-yard touchdown pass to Spruce on third down and gave the Buffaloes a 34-28 lead. The catch was Spruce's 12th receiving touchdown of the season, which set a CU record that was previously held by Derek McCoy. Spruce finished the game with five catches for 91 yards and a score.
