The upcoming matchup between Colorado Buffaloes, led by Deion Sanders, and the Oregon Ducks just got even more exciting. This highly-anticipated game features two top 25 teams, with the Buffaloes ranked No. 19 and aiming to pull off another upset against the No. 10 ranked Ducks, who are favored by three touchdowns. To add to the excitement, the Buffaloes recently made things personal by playing Oregon’s fight song during practice.
It’s safe to say that everyone is eagerly awaiting Saturday’s showdown. The Buffaloes have been the biggest surprise of the 2023 college football season so far. Under Sanders’ leadership, they have already tripled their win total from last year, going from one win to three wins. A significant factor in their success has been the impressive performance of quarterback Shedeur Sanders, Deion’s son, who has thrown 10 touchdowns and only one interception in three games. Shedeur is already considered a top contender for the 2023 Heisman Trophy.
Colorado started their season with an upset victory against the TCU Horned Frogs, last year’s national championship game runner-ups. They then followed it up with a dominant win against their rivals, the Nebraska Cornhuskers, in their home opener. The Buffaloes continued their winning streak with an exciting overtime victory against the Colorado State Rams, bringing their record to a perfect 3-0. Now, they will try to continue their fairytale season by securing another win against the heavily-favored Ducks.
