November continues on and so do the Buffs as they navigate their way through their toughest month on the schedule. Colorado will be making the trip to Seattle to take on the 17th-ranked Washington Huskies and the nation’s leading passer in Michael Penix Jr. Penix and the Huskies are coming off of a massive upset win in Eugene over the Oregon Ducks where Penix threw for 408 yards, completed 75.3% of his passes and threw for two touchdowns and one interception. This week will be the third week in a row that Colorado will face off against one of the premier quarterbacks in the country and interim head coach Mike Sanford spoke about the challenges Penix and the Huskies present.…

After the Buffs lost their best offensive player in Jordyn Tyson, Colorado faces a double whammy as they are on a short week and have to travel to Los Angeles to take on USC. Colorado is entering Friday night’s matchup as 34-point underdogs and even after last week’s blowout against Oregon, interim head coach Mike Sanford is doing well to block outside noise. “Nobody’s going to give us a chance but we’re going to go in there with belief,” Sanford said. “That’s what this week’s preparations have been about.” While it may seem like the Buffs are walking into a buzzsaw, going back to southern California is a homecoming of sorts for many players on Colorado’s roster. One of those…

Last Saturday against Oregon, Jordyn Tyson had the best game of his career until he went down with an injury in the fourth quarter. Colorado’s interim head coach, Mike Sanford, was not optimistic about Tyson’s injury in the post-game press conference after the Buffs’ loss to Oregon. In a Zoom conference with Buffs’ media on Sunday night, Sanford confirmed Buff Nation’s worst fear. “It’s going to be a season-ending injury for Jordyn,” Sanford said. “[It’s a] lower leg injury. The future is very bright for him and we expect him to make a full recovery.” While coach Sanford was coy with the details about Tyson’s injury he added that the injury was, “nothing out of the norm with regards to…

The leaves are turning, the World Series is on TV and it’s getting colder. It must be November. For the Colorado Buffaloes, November brings on four opportunities for the Buffs to prove themselves against the PAC-12’s best. The Buffs’ focus is on Oregon this weekend but will face USC, Washington and Utah in that order this month. In last week’s homecoming game against Arizona State, Colorado showed a willingness to fight when they were down by 22 points late in the fourth quarter. They’re going to need all of that fight and then some with the number eight team in the country coming to Folsom Field this Saturday in the Oregon Ducks. The Buffs are 31.5-point underdogs heading into Saturday’s…

At Tuesday’s weekly press conference, Colorado interim head coach Mike Sanford’s main talking points weren’t as much about Arizona State or Oregon but rather name, image and likeness (NIL). Last Friday, the Buffs4Life Foundation alongside the University of Colorado announced the Buffs4Life NIL Collective. Buffs4Life was created to aid former Colorado student-athletes and provide a community that could provide those former student-athletes with financial assistance and mental health resources. Now that effort has been expanded to provide assistance to current CU student-athletes. “I believe that what Buffs4Life and the collective put forth at the end of last week is a game-changing narrative for our program,” Sanford said. Colorado has lagged behind the rest of the country in terms of adjusting…

The injuries at running back and quarterback have placed the Buffs into a tough predicament. Offensively, Colorado has struggled in every game this season but after Owen McCown’s injury against Cal, J.T. Shrout played and led well in relief of McCown. Shrout struggled last weekend against Oregon State who was the latest opponent to get out in front of the Buffs early and put a stranglehold on Colorado. It’s unclear who will start at quarterback for both the Sun Devils and the Buffs this week in a matchup of two teams who could be playing for their last win of the season. Colorado’s interim offensive coordinator, Clay Patterson spoke about the offense and the troubles they’ve had throughout the season…

Coming off of the momentum generated by interim head coach Mike Sanford’s energy and the Buffs’ first win of the season against Cal, Colorado fell flat last Saturday against Oregon State. It was a painful 42-9 loss that was a reminder of the first five games of the season under Karl Dorrell’s lead. Last week’s loss was a tough pill...
