Colorado Buffaloes wide receiver Toney Clemons caught 4 passes for 31 yards in Saturday’s 37-17 loss to Ohio State on Saturday afternoon in Columbus, Ohio.

Clemons knows the Buckeyes quite well. He grew up in New Kensington, Pennsylvania, which is northeast of Pittsburgh and was invited to their Junior Day as a 2007 football recruit.

Clemons said that “Ohio State was a team I grew up wanting to play against when I was little. I was fortunate to get a chance to do it-twice.”

And Clemons took two losses. He played two seasons at Michigan (2007, 2008) before transferring to Colorado in 2009. In his freshman year in Ann Arbor, Ohio State visited and won 14-3. In 2008, Michigan played in Ohio Stadium and left with a 42-7 whipping. Clemons, played in 19 games with three starts while at Michigan, did not register a stat in either game against the Buckeyes.

With Saturday’s loss in Columbus, Clemons has faced Ohio State three times and is 0-for-3.
