Colorado escapes upset and defeats Colorado State 43-35

Since the start of the season, Colorado has been the talk of the town. A lot of people around the world have tuned in to see how the program was going to be different with Deion Sanders being the head coach. Coach Prime and his team have jumped out to a 2-o record, with his son Shedeur Sanders being in an early conversation of a Heisman runner, which brought a lot of positive, as well as negative criticism. Despite the early success of the Buffaloes, there have been some criticism towards coach Prime.

Before the match up between Colorado State and Colorado, Colorado States' head coach had a lot to say about Coach Sanders. "I sat down with ESPN today. And I don’t care if they hear it in Boulder. I told them, ‘I took my hat off, and I took my glasses off.’ And I said, ‘When I talk to grown-ups, I take my hat and my glasses off.’ That’s what my mother taught me. They’re not going to like us no matter what we say or do. It doesn’t matter. So, let’s go up there and play."

Coach Sanders took heart to how he addresses people and made it personal. He told his team that all he was doing was paying attention to his program and outcome some bull-zive about how he addresses people. He stated. "They made this personal." While other household publications and news stations liked the buzz that has been erupting with the programs, Coach Sanders was worried about one thing and that was pulling out a victory.

The game in itself featured momentum as well as physical swings after another. Both teams were playing very intensely and put up some point in a very interesting shootout Going into the fourth and down by eight, Colorado had to figure out a way to avoid the upset and put points on the board. Sanders provided that spark late in the quarter and forced overtime. In extra quarters, the Buffaloes scored twice and put the pettiness to sleep with a 43-35 victory. For the first time in a very long time, Colorado is 3-0.

Sanders finished the game 38 out of 47 for 348 yards, 4 td's and 1 int. Despite having another productive game offensively, Colorado allowed 499 total yards on the defensive end of the ball. With their scheduling tightening up a bit, they need to adjust their defense, playing some of college football elite teams in the next few weeks.
