we are in the low 60s right now in fort collins, downtown denver upper 50s, sterling and akron 51. idaho springs upper 40s walden and leadville. right now at the airport actually want up just a bit. 67 now with southwesterly winds kicking in around 15. that's actually helping to warm us up just a bit. in the nine backyard, 10:00 p.m. not too shabby at all. looking at those numbers in the upper 60s. you can see on hd doppler 9, we're not watching anything, no it's kept us dry for the past couple days. where is all the wet weather? you have to go pretty far, parts of the ohio river valley now into new york picking up on those rain showers. this is actually a cold front sliding all the way throughout parts of the southeast. tonight here in our backyard, 53 mostly clear skies. it will be a little bit cooler in northeastern colorado. certainly up in the mountains. 33 grand lake, low 40s in frisco. pretty mild out to the west. the rest looks pretty good.

it was his first start. >> feels like a rookie. >> he played well in the fourth quarter. because he put points on the board. >> i thought he did some good things. you know what i thought? 18-26. that's what we're going to get from him. high percentage, short passing game, try not to make too many mistakes. a pick or two every so often. >> with the help of the running game. >> he helped the running game. he scrambled for a few first downs with his legs. >> some mobility. >> better in the coming weeks. >> my game ball went to luke richardson. for those of you who don't know who that is, the strength and conditioning coach. the rest of this team, the broncos being here at altitude were able to wear down the panthers this first game where a lot of players had not played an extended amount of time. i'm going to chalk the first one up to strength and conditioning. >> got to go. >> my game ball goes to c.j.
from colorado sports leader, here's rod mackey. >> idaho state? on paper, a gamy game for cu but the buffs won't look past anyone anymore. not after what happened back in 2006 when montana state went into boulder and shocked colorado. mike kramer was the head coach of that te state. good guys got off to a good start as csu scored -- see you that is, scored first. on the first drive. devon ross, buffs like that. from the air to the ground, three tds taken in from him close, two by philip lindsay and this one by kyle evans. that made it 28-0. soon to be 35-0. as he goes back to the
