Tuesday morning marked the start of Colorado head coach Deion Sanders’ weekly press conference as his team got ready for its season-ending home finale.
The Buffaloes (4-5) and Sanders will take on Arizona (6-3) in Boulder on Saturday.
The game on Saturday is scheduled to begin at noon MT and will be broadcast nationwide on Pac-12 Network.
Folsom Field, which is commemorating its 100th season, will host its final home game of the season. Colorado Football announced in September that it has sold out every home football game for the first time ever.
The Colorado Buffaloes have three games left in the season and are two wins away from bowl eligibility.
The No. 16 Oregon State Beavers defeated CU last Saturday in Boulder, 26-19. Following Pat Shurmur’s injury, the Buffaloes ran for minus-7 yards compared to the Beavers’ 195 yards on the ground.
After stunning the NCAA champs, the women’s basketball team from Colorado Buffaloes is the talk of the nation.
In the season opener on Monday night in Las Vegas, the CU Buffs defeated No. 1 and the reigning champion LSU 92-78.
During his press conference on Tuesday, Colorado’s head football coach Deion Sanders gave the CU women’s basketball team high marks.
“They’re coming and we should’ve played their theme music, cause they’re balling” Sanders said. “You know I’m a huge fan of their coach, Coach Payne, she’s unbelieveable. Just to see her do her thing and witness her practices.”
“That is huge. We cannot underestimate what they just did. That was huge for the program, huge for the university and women’s basketball. Hats off to ’em, I wish I could’ve been there to witness it myself, but it was a blessing.”
