Colorado walks down the field for opening touchdown vs. TCU in Deion Sanders debut
Colorado is on the board for the first time in 2023.
And it was pretty easy.
After No. 17 TCU went three-and-out to open Saturday’s game, Colorado marched right down the field for a first-possession touchdown in Deion Sanders’ debut as the CU head coach. The Buffs walked 73 yards down the field in 13 plays and 5:06 of game clock.
Sanders’ son, Shedeur, flipped a pass to tailback Dylan Edwards for 4 yards to cap the drive with a touchdown. TCU brought pressure off the edge as Edwards leaked out. Sanders diagnosed things right away and hit the wide-open Edwards for six.
FIRST TD OF THE SEASON FOR COLORADO

All Shedeur Sanders did at Jackson State was throw touchdown passes. Last fall, he set a program record for touchdowns in a season with 40. At CU, Sanders’ teammates believe he can be one of the best quarterbacks in the Pac-12.
On his first possession, Sanders operated smoothly. CU moved at a lightning-fast tempo, but was very clean. It caught TCU in a substitution once and moved right down the field.
