CU Beats No. 21 West Virginia In O.T.

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Aric Goodman made a 25-yard field goal in overtime to give Colorado a 17-14 victory over No. 21 West Virginia on Thursday night.

The Mountaineers had the ball first in overtime, but Pat McAfee's 23-yard attempt clanged off the left upright.

Cody Hawkins threw two touchdown passes - both in the first quarter - and Rodney Stewart rushed for 166 yards, the most ever by a Colorado freshman.

The Buffaloes improved to 3-0 for the first time since 2004.

West Virginia quarterback Pat White ran for two touchdowns and 148 yards, and Noel Devine finished with 133 yards on the ground. The Mountaineers (1-2) have lost consecutive road games for the first time since 2003. They lost at East Carolina, 24-3, on Sept. 6.
