Colorado Buffaloes’ quarterback Shedeur Sanders revealed something interesting after leading his team to a stunning win over TCU on Saturday: He only sees one major difference between the FCS and the FBS.
Shedeur and his father, Pro Football Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, were previously at Jackson State before coming to Colorado together. Deion coached his son and the Tigers to consecutive SWAC Championships in 2021 and 2022 before making the move to the highest level of NCAA football.
Speaking to reporters after Colorado’s monumental win at TCU (h/t Dan Lyons of Count On 2), Shedeur revealed ” the only difference” he’s noticed between the FCS and FBS:
“The only difference between FCS and this level is the D-line get off blocks if you try to scramble up faster. Everything else, you’ve got good players, good DBs, good receivers, everything like that. You just have more of those on the field at once.
Everybody on the field ain’t going first round. A lot on the field may not get drafted. So people fear names, I don’t fear names, because I really don’t care. When you fear names, that’s half the battle.”
The Buffaloes entered Saturday’s game as a massive 21-point underdog. But they were mostly in control against the national championship game runner-ups, and Shedeur’s 510 passing yards (a school record) and four passing TDs were too much for TCU to overcome.
Four different Colorado players finished with more than 100 receiving yards: Dylan Edwards, Travis Hunter, Xavier Weaver and Jimmy Horn. Three of Edwards’ five receptions went for touchdowns.
Coming off one of the greatest regular season wins in school history, the Buffaloes will try to retain the momentum when they host Matt Rhule’s Nebraska Cornhuskers this Saturday. Ticket prices for that highly-anticipated game are through the roof, with TickPick noting that $375 is the cheapest ticket available.
