Colorado beats Cal 41-24 to snap conference skid

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Sefo Liufau threw for a career-high 364 yards and Paul Richardson tied a team record for receptions in a contest with 11 to help Colorado snap a 14-game conference losing streak by beating slumping California 41-24 on a windy Saturday.

Liufau also tossed three TD passes as he outplayed fellow freshman Jared Goff, who struggled to ignite the offense as the Bears (1-10, 0-8 Pac-12) dropped their 13th straight league game.

Nelson Spruce and Richardson each went over the 100-yard receiving mark for Colorado (4-6, 1-6). Spruce had eight catches for 140 yards and Richardson had 140 yards. Richardson now has 1,201 yards receiving this year, a new single-season record at Colorado.

It was Colorado's first league win since beating Washington State 35-34 on Sept. 22, 2012. The victory also keeps the Buffaloes' bowl chances afloat as they host USC next week and close out the season at Utah.
