Colorado Buffaloes are ready for their most awaited home opener in decades against the Cornhuskers Nebraska. Some supporters ran onto the ground before the game was officially over.
On Saturday, Buffaloes supporters are in considerable numbers in Folsom ground to watch coach Deion Sanders’ most awaited home debut. Buffs Nation was honored with a solid second-half performance from quarterback Shedeur Sanders, and the Colorado offense as a team has a strong position of 2-0 on the season.
The No. 22 Colorado Buffaloes defeated top rival Nebraska, 36-14, in front of a packed stadium in Boulder. Colorado’s defense ruled the entire game, forcing four turnovers on the day. After being in the spotlight in the first week of the college football season, the Buffaloes were looking to show that their three-point win over TCU was not a fluke.
Colorado has a solid start in the first half of the game. The final score of the first half was 13-0. Buffaloes accelerate in the last few minutes after a dull start. The critical moment came in a game was a significant turnover by Nebraska, which Colorado utilized, and grabbed a double-digit lead as quarterback Shedeur Sanders showed his skills and connected with Tar’Varish Dawson, wide receiver, for a 30-yard touchdown one play after Colorado’s defense set down a blockage.
Turnovers troubled Nebraska in the entire game, and Jeff Sims, the quarterback, is the reason for all of them. He failed to catch two snaps, both of which hit him squarely in the hands, and Colorado was able to capitalize on that opportunity.
Nebraska’s defense has played exceptionally well in the entire game, but in the end, they could not manage to play well and made some mistakes that cost them the game. Buffaloes managed to score their all-point due to Nebraska turnovers.
Colorado’s overall performance is excellent. Shedeur Sanders worked a 10-play, 75-yard drive in a bit of time. It takes just three minutes to sabotage Nebraska and get back into the game.
