This matchup had all the makings of a classic, with both teams showcasing their offensive prowess in a battle that kept spectators guessing until the final moments.


The stage was set at TCU and fans were treated to a spectacle that lived up to the hype. With star players like Dylan Edwards, Jimmy Horn, Jr., and Travis Hunter on the roster, the Buffaloes were determined to prove that they were a force to be reckoned with in college football.

But Colorado was far from finished. Deion Sanders, with his characteristic swagger and belief in his players, orchestrated a comeback. In a play that will be replayed endlessly on highlight reels, Sanders launched a deep pass to Travis Hunter, who made a gravity-defying catch that left fans in awe. Shortly after, Sanders found Jimmy Horn, Jr. wide open in the back of the end zone, regaining the lead.



The game's intensity continued to build as TCU returned the kickoff deep into Colorado territory, allowing Trey Sanders to add another touchdown to his impressive tally.


In the midst of all this action, Dylan Edwards emerged as the standout player of the game. His incredible speed and agility were on full display, as he scored four touchdowns, leaving spectators wondering if he had jet packs hidden under his jersey.

Shedeur Sanders, the poised and confident quarterback, remained unflappable even in the most pressure-packed moments. By the end of the game, he had completed 37 of 46 passes for a staggering 510 yards and four touchdowns.


Chandler Morris, leading TCU's offense, contributed 271 passing yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions, while Trey Sanders left an indelible mark with his three touchdowns.
