In Boulder, Deion Sanders’ first season ends with a 56-14 loss to Washington State. Quarterback Shedeur Sanders left the game in the first half due to injury, and the backup was disappointing. This was the Buffaloes’ fifth straight loss, and it eliminates their chances of a bowl game. Washington State, with the same record as Colorado, scored the most points of the season. Sanders faced criticism for his coaching style and lack of balance in the team. The Buffs allowed an FBS-leading 54 sacks on their quarterbacks this season. The future for Colorado remains uncertain, especially in the competitive Big 12 conference.
