Sep 2, 2023

In Week 1 of college football, fans were eagerly anticipating the “Big Noon Kickoff” matchup between the No. 17 TCU Horned Frogs and the Colorado Buffaloes. TCU had a successful season in 2022, making it to the College Football Playoff championship game under coach Sonny Dykes. On the other hand, Colorado had a disappointing 1-11 season but made a splashy coaching hire in Deion Sanders, aka “Coach Prime”. Sanders not only brought his superstar quarterback son, Shedeur Sanders, with him from Jackson State but also completely revamped the Colorado roster. The game has been a close affair, with Colorado holding a lead in the second half.

In the third quarter of the game, TCU finally took the lead with a touchdown reception from Dylan Wright. TCU’s Chandler Morris redeemed himself after throwing an interception earlier. Sonny Dykes may need to emphasize running the ball for the rest of the half, as TCU has been successful with 8.3 yards per rush.

Colorado star Travis Hunter has been making a huge impact in his first FBS game, preventing a potential scoring drive for TCU with an incredible diving interception. TCU responds with a three-play touchdown drive to keep the game intense.

In the third quarter, Colorado increases their lead with a 75-yard touchdown catch-and-run by Dylan Edwards. Deion Sanders has pumped up his team for both halves of his debut game at the Power 5 level. The halftime score is 17-14 in favor of Colorado.

Travis Hunter has been his favorite target with several highlight-reel catches. TCU’s defense has adjusted to Colorado’s tempo, but has struggled on third down. TCU’s run game has been strong, led by Trey Sanders with two touchdowns on the ground.
