Sanders Leads ‘Resilient’ Buffs Past Colorado State

The first two games for the Colorado Buffaloes have been something that college football has rarely seen. With big wins over TCU and Nebraska, Deion Sanders and co. have lived up to and exceeded expectations. But this week’s game vs. Colorado State was personal, and that was the theme throughout this entire week leading up to the game. Colorado State coach made some comments about Sanders and they didn’t particularly go over well with him, so the atmosphere for Saturday night was on the hostile side.

The game started shaky for Colorado, as Shedeur Sanders threw his first interception of the season. Two-way dynamo Travis Hunter also was injured severely on the play from a blatant and dirty hit from a Colorado State safety. As the game progressed, Colorado State was able to keep the Buffs under control and even had an 11-point lead in the fourth quarter. In the final drive of the game, Shedeur Sanders led a 98-yard drive capped off by a 45-yard touchdown throw to Jimmy Horn Jr. to set up a two-point conversion to send the game to OT. In OT, Sanders didn’t skip a beat and edged out Colorado State 43-35 to remain undefeated.

Sanders finished the game with 348 yards passing and four touchdowns
