Deion Sanders and Colorado upset No. 17 TCU in his FBS coaching debut
Deion Sanders won his first game as the University of Colorado head coach, upsetting No. 17 TCU 45-42 in his Football Bowl
Subdivision (FBS) coaching debut on Saturday.
It was a tightly contested matchup all afternoon at Amon G. Carter Stadium in Fort Worth, Texas, but Colorado emerged victorious over ranked opponents for the first time since 2019.
The Buffaloes came out of the gates fast, jumping out to a 24-14 lead in the third quarter. However, the Horned Frogs scored two unanswered touchdowns to take a 28-24 lead.
Both teams went back and forth and, with Colorado down 42-38 with over four minutes to play in the game, Sanders’ son quarterback Shedeur Sanders found Dylan Edwards for the game-winning touchdown and helped secure his father’s first victory.
Shedeur Sanders set the school record for passing yards with 510 yards and four touchdowns. Travis Hunter, Colorado’s two-way star, who plays wide receiver and cornerback, intercepted a pass in the red zone and caught 11 passes for 119 yards on offense.
