“A lot of you didn’t believe in us,” Colorado’s quarterback Shedeur Sanders said. “It’s crazy because you just got to understand our coach, Coach Prime, my dad, everywhere he went, he was a winner every game, every opportunity he took advantage of.”

The Horned Frogs fell to 0-1 on the season. TCU was the national runner-up in the College Football Playoff National Championship game last season before being dismantled by the Georgia Bulldogs.

Sanders went 38 of 47 for 510 yards for the Buffaloes. He had four touchdown passes.

Sanders followed his father to Boulder, Colorado after serving as the quarterback at Jackson State.

Sy’veon Wilkerson had 13 carries for 45 yards and a touchdown. Dylan Edwards had five receptions for 135 yards and three touchdowns.

“They showed up. They were more ready to play than we were, think more excited to play, think they played harder,” TCU coach Sonny Dykes said. “It seemed like they had more determination down the stretch than we did. So against that’s a real credit to them. I think their coaching staff, they really did a good job getting them ready to play.”

TCU quarterback Chandler Morris went 24 of 42 for 279 yards. He had two touchdown passes and two interceptions.

Emani Bailey had 14 carries for 164 yards. Jared Wiley had six receptions for 69 yards and a touchdown.

Each team had four touchdowns in the second half. Sanders hit Edwards for a 75-yard touchdown reception.

Edwards also scored on a seven-yard rushing touchdown. Sanders also connected with Jimmy Horn Jr. for a 26-yard touchdown reception.

Sanders also hit Edwards for a 46-yard touchdown reception.

Morris hit Wiley for a 21-yard touchdown reception for the Horned Frogs in the second half. He also connected with Dylan Wright for a 23-yard touchdown reception.

Morris scored on a 19-yard rushing touchdown. Trey Sanders also scored on a one-yard rushing touchdown.

Colorado led 17-14 at halftime. Sanders hit Edwards for a four-yard touchdown reception.

Wilkerson scored on a two-yard rushing touchdown. Jace Feely also made a 49-yard field goal.

Horned Frogs’ Sanders added a seven-yard rushing touchdown. He also scored on a four-yard rushing touchdown.

“I told the guys afterwards, if we play like that this year, we’re not going to win many football games. So we’ve got to get a lot better,” Dykes said. “Thought our tackling was really, really bad defensively. We’ve got a lot of guys back, those guys have tackled. I don’t know what happened today that they can tackle.”
