NFL Hall of Fame Deion Sanders’ Colorado Buffaloes live up to hype with 45-42 win over the TCU Horned Frogs.
Colorado came into the game as 20.5-point underdogs against 17th-ranked TCU, who played for last year’s National Championship.
Coach Prime massively turned over Colorado’s roster from a team that went 1-11 in 2022. The Coach utilized the transfer portal to reshape the Buffaloes.
Colorado was led by QB Shedeur Sanders, Deion’s son, who completed 38 of 47 passes for 510 yards with four touchdowns.
The game-winnig play was a 46-yard catch-and-run by freshman Dylan Edwards with 4:25 left in the game. Edwards caught three touchdowns and also ran for another score.
The other big star for Colorado was two-way starter Travis Hunter, the former top recruit who came with the quarterback and coach from FCS school Jackson State.
Hunter had 11 catches for 119 yards on offense. As a defensive back, he had one of the two interceptions that TCU’s QB Chandler Morris.
Sanders’ 510 yards passing is the most in a single game by a Colorado QB. His performance was amazing. Sanders showed great poise and accuracy directing the Buffaloes offense.
In just one game, Coach Prime has put the Colorado Buffaloes back on the map. Deion Sanders is a damn good Head Coach and his team has opened many eyes with their week one performance.
