Last week, college football made its triumphant return after a long offseason, and it didn’t disappoint, with several major upsets from across the country.
On Saturday afternoon, the college football world tuned in to see Deion Sanders and the Colorado Buffaloes walk into Fort Worth and take down Sonny Dykes and the 17th-ranked TCU Horned Frogs as 21-point underdogs.
Boulder has been a focal point since Sanders took over at Colorado, but the hype around the Buffaloes has reached an all-time high after their 45-42 win over TCU.
When I say the eyes of college football were all over this team, I say it both metaphorically and literally, as Colorado vs. TCU ended up being the most-watched game of Saturday’s action, according to the Big 12 Conference.
According to the graphic, the game reached 7.3 million viewers, which is quite impressive.
Not often do we get to witness a Game of the Year candidate in Week 1, but that’s exactly what the Buffs and Frogs provided us on Saturday.
This game had the atmosphere and last year’s runner-up against the biggest coaching name in college football. Plus, we saw a quarterback set a school record and a two-way player that can only be described as a generational talent.
These kinds of matchups don’t happen all that often, but next year, it will be a Big 12 conference clash, and must-see TV once again.
