BOULDER, Colo. -- The constant stream of personal-foul penalties on No. 16 Colorado last week provided an instant wake-up call.As in, having to set those alarms for bright and early because 80 reps of up-downs along with a series of timed sprints awaited the Buffaloes the next day. The impromptu workout session was the punishment handed out by coach Mike MacIntyre for eight personal-foul penalties in a 20-10 win over UCLA on Thursday.The Buffaloes (7-2, 5-1 Pac-12, No. 12 CFP) vow to keep cooler heads Saturday at Arizona (2-7, 0-6), especially in the thick of a Pac-12 South title chase.The way we played is not normally how we play, said senior outside linebacker Jimmie Gilbert, who was flagged for targeting in the first quarter for a hit on sliding UCLA QB Mike Fafaul that carried an ejection. In order to be Pac-12 champions, we cant play like that -- ever.We gave up a lot of (yards) just because of penalties -- stupid personal fouls, offsides, things like that. By coach punishing us for that, its a way of getting that mistake corrected and putting a message in our head that that isnt acceptable.The Buffaloes averaged the least amount of penalty yards per game in the league before Thursdays meltdown in which they drew 12 flags for 128 yards. MacIntyre can live with some of the personal-foul calls. Those were just his team being overly aggressive, he explained.But he took issue with the unsportsmanlike conduct flags such as taunting and hitting a player out of bounds.Thats totally selfish and all that does is hurt the team, MacIntyre said. After the whistle is blown -- those type of plays are what really irritates me.The Buffaloes met as a team the following day and addressed it.We looked each other in the eyes and in the face and we said, `Were not going to do that again, senior running back Phillip Lindsay said. That will get us beat down the line, making stupid penalties. Weve got to hold each other accountable.And with that, the issue was put to rest.Now on to the next task -- jump-starting a lackluster offense. The Buffaloes averaged 39 points in their opening seven games, but struggled to score against Stanford and UCLA.To not be playing our best offense is pretty frustrating, said senior quarterback Sefo Liufau, whos set or tied 82 school records in his career. After the Stanford game, I was upset with my performance. And UCLA, I was striving too much for perfection instead of throwing the ball.I want to be perfect and get the ball to the guys, let them make plays.Still, the defense and special teams have bailed the Buffaloes out. Colorados defense held Stanford to 263 total yards in a 10-5 win and special teams sealed with the victory over the Bruins, courtesy of Isaiah Olivers 68-yard punt return for a TD with 5:27 remaining.Thats just the way things have been going around Boulder this season.They can handle the moment now -- if its good, bad or indifferent, said MacIntyre, whose team is trying to move to 8-2 for the first time since 2001. They just keeping pushing through it.In the past, when they werent sure about that, it was like, `Oh, no, and panic a little bit and lose a little bit of focus. I think we now crank our focus up. I think we crank our intensity up as a whole group.Gilbert couldnt agree more.Were playing phenomenal, said Gilbert, whos tied for the most forced fumbles (5) in the nation this season. Weve still got mistakes weve got to get corrected. We still have a lot to complete, but weve made tremendous strides.Game notes Kicker Davis Price (mono) will be healthy enough to play Saturday, MacIntyre said. ...

BORDEAUX, France -- Germany ended 54 years of misery against Italy at major tournaments by taking a familiar route to victory: The penalty shootout.Jonas Hector lifted the so-called Italian curse off Germany on Saturday by converting the 18th kick of one of the wildest shootouts in European Championship history, clinching a 6-5 victory and a place in the semifinals.I took my heart in my hand, said Hector, Germanys left back, and just wanted to make sure it went in.It did -- but only just. Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon guessed the right way but dived over Hectors kick. No wonder the 38-year-old Buffon walked off the field in tears afterward.A cagey match between Europes two most successful soccer nations finished 1-1 after extra time, with Leonardo Bonuccis 78th-minute penalty for Italy canceling out a 65th-minute strike by Mesut Ozil.After the tactical tedium came the shootout drama. Bonucci was one of seven players to fail to score in the shootout, with Germany captain Bastian Schweinsteiger also blazing over when he could have sealed victory with the score at 2-2.Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer gave his side another sight of victory by saving Matteo Darmians penalty, and Hector held his nerve.Ive never experienced a penalty shootout like it before, Neuer said.It was Germanys sixth straight victory in a penalty shootout since losing the final of Euro 1976 to Czechoslovakia, and its first competitive win over Italy in nine tries dating back to 1962. That run included defeats to the Azzurri in the 1982 World Cup final and three major tournament semifinals -- at World Cups in 1970 and 2006, and at Euro 2012.Seeking to follow up its World Cup title from two years ago, Germany will play either France or Iceland in a semifinal match in Marseille on Thursday.Italys loss ended Antonio Contes two-year tenure as coach and he heads to Chelsea in the English Premier League with a strong reputation aftter masterminding wins over highly fancied Belgium and Spain at Euro 2016.ddddddddddddThe only regret I have from this European Championship is these penalties, Conte said. Nothing else; no regrets. These lads really showed everything.One of his last acts as Italy coach was to embrace Darmian, who collapsed to the ground in despair after seeing Hector convert his penalty.It was a fixture worthy of the final itself -- Italy and Germany have won eight World Cup titles between them -- but the game didnt live up to its promise.Dropping deep when not in possession, Italys defensive set-up stifled the Germans -- another tactical success for Conte -- and made for a contest of few clear-cut chances until Ozils goal.Hector ran onto Mario Gomezs inside pass and sent over a cross that deflected into the path of the inrushing Arsenal playmaker, who calmly steered the ball home from eight meters.It was the first time the Germans had got behind Italys famed back line all game, but they couldnt hold on. They finally conceded a goal at the tournament when Bonucci scored from the spot after Jerome Boateng handled Giorgio Chiellinis flicked header.Bonucci was a surprising choice as penalty-taker, considering he hadnt previously taken one in regulation time in his career.With both teams tiring and showing respect for each other, extra time passed without significant incident and Euro 2016 had its second penalty shootout of the quarterfinals -- after Portugal beat Poland on Thursday.As Germany, as ever, won the battle of nerves from the spot.It was the lottery of the shootout, Conte said. I think theyre the best side in the world. The fact we could match them is an achievement.Mats Hummels will miss the semifinal through suspension after collecting a second yellow card of the tournament.
