University of Colorado Board of Regents Approve Deion Sanders' $29.5 Million 5-Year Contract

Deion Sanders Leads the Colorado Buffaloes to Upset Win Against Texas Christian University

Coach Deion Sanders was hired to take over the Colorado Buffaloes football team before the start of this season. People questioned whether he could take a team that had a 1-12 record in 2022 and make them contenders. That question may have been answered after the team’s first game of the season as they have already matched last season’s win total.

According to The Associated Press, the impact of Coach Prime was felt immediately as they scored an upset win over a top 20-seeded team in the first game of the young season. In Sanders’ first game as an FBS (The NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision) coach, he emerged victorious. He previously coached at an HBCU, Jackson State University, where he led them to two conference championships.

His son, Shedeur Sanders, has already broken a school record when he threw for 510 yards with four touchdowns. The last one was the game-winner, a 46-yard catch-and-run by freshman Dylan Edwards with 4:25 left in the game. With a defensive stop, the Buffaloes were able to pull off an upset over the 17th-ranked Texas Christian University who were last year’s national runner-up. The final score was 45-42.

“A lot of you didn’t believe in us,” Shedeur stated. “It’s crazy because you just got to understand our coach, Coach Prime, my dad, everywhere he went, he was a winner. Every game, every opportunity, he took advantage of.”

The oddsmakers had the Buffloes as a three-touchdown underdog and they won by three points. Impressive for a major college football coach debut.

“I’ve been talking about it and talking about it and you didn’t believe me,” Coach Prime said.

The team received praise from their opponent’s coach, Sonny Dykes.

“They showed up. They were more ready to play than we were, think more excited to play, think they played harder,” Dykes said. “It seemed like they had more determination down the stretch than we did. So against that’s a real credit to them. I think their coaching staff, they really did a good job getting them ready to play.”

The season already shapes up to be better than last season with this starting victory. The next game will be played in front of the home crowd this upcoming Saturday as the Buffaloes go up against the Nebraska Cornhuskers, who lost their first game this weekend.
