Cyclones lose Arnaud, game to Colorado

Posted:

BOULDER, CO. (KWWL) -- Interim coach Brian Cabral won his debut for Colorado on Saturday when Cody Hawkins threw three touchdown passes and Rodney Stewart ran for 123 yards in the Buffaloes' 34-14 victory over Iowa State.

Cabral took over the troubled program Tuesday when Dan Hawkins was fired following an epic collapse at Kansas last week in which the Buffaloes blew a 28-point lead in the final 11 minutes.

Cabral has been on the Colorado coaching staff since 1989 after his linebacking career at Boulder and in the NFL came to an end, but this was his first game as a head coach at any level.

The Buffaloes (4-6, 1-5 Big 12) kept alive their hopes for a bowl berth while denying the Cyclones (5-6, 3-4) bowl eligibility.

Iowa State has one more shot at bowl eligibility as they host Missouri next Saturday.
