In a stunning turnaround from their narrow victory over TCU the previous week, the Colorado Buffaloes, under the guidance of Coach Deion Sanders, have become the talk of the town with their consecutive wins. The team's performance has doubled their win count from last year's disappointing season.
Once again, Shedeur Sanders took center stage, delivering remarkable touchdown passes that propelled the Buffaloes to a commanding 22-point victory. During the post-game interview, Shedeur addressed several pressing issues facing the team.
He touched upon a wide range of topics, particularly highlighting the persistent presence of critics despite their triumphant performance. When asked about the statement the team and offense had made in their home opener, Shedeur, initially perplexed, sought clarification, wondering whether the reference was to the team or the public.
Another person present clarified that the reporter meant both the critics and the fans.
Shedeur Addresses Critics
Without hesitation, Shedeur responded, "Well, the critics, they're going to hate, regardless." He acknowledged that naysayers had managed to find fault with the team even after their impressive win against last year's championship contender, TCU.
Shedeur expressed his expectation that criticism would continue but emphasized that the team remained focused on continuous improvement. During the interview, Shedeur revealed that the offense faced challenges in the first half while the defense and special teams excelled, helping maintain the team's lead.
CU's stunning upset over Nebraska showcased the team's resilience. Although the offense struggled in the first half, they managed to maintain their lead, thanks in part to placekicker Jace Feely's impressive 31-yard field goal, pushing the score to 13-0.
The offense found its rhythm in the second half, with Shedeur completing an impressive 32 of 42 passes for a total of 393 yards. He also contributed two passing touchdowns and a rushing touchdown to his tally. Notably, Xavier Weaver emerged as a star, catching a total of 10 passes for 170 yards.
This triumphant win has catapulted the Buffaloes to the top of the Pac-12 standings and positioned Shedeur as a strong contender for the Heisman Trophy in the eyes of many experts. The Colorado Buffaloes' recent success has reignited hope among fans and has them eagerly anticipating what the rest of the season has in store.
With Shedeur Sanders leading the charge, the Buffaloes are proving to be a force to be reckoned with in college football.
