The Buffaloes were kept without a point far into the second quarter against TCU after a 45-point outburst against them. Fortunately for Deion Sanders' team, Nebraska went an even longer stretch without scoring. The door for Colorado was ultimately opened by the Cornhuskers' errors.
In the second half, Colorado's offense appeared considerably more at ease and deliberate, churning its way to three additional touchdowns and transforming what had once been a defensive struggle into a lopsided contest.
Shedeur Sanders made a few mistakes early on and was sacked seven times, but it was his growth from beginning to end that gave Colorado hope that this kind of success was attainable in the future.
It was Xavier Weaver who led the way for the Buffaloes this week after Dylan Edwards came through with four touchdowns against TCU. Sanders had a certain target even when the offense wasn't performing at its peak thanks to Weaver's 170 yards on 10 catches.
Colorado's win total from 2022 has already been doubled by Coach Prime's team, which is present. Prior to their high-profile contests against Oregon and USC, the Buffaloes will play a tune-up game against Colorado State, while Matt Rhule's Nebraska team will start over offensively.
