Colorado quarterback Shedeur Sanders suffered a significant injury during a blowout loss to Washington State, putting an end to the team’s hopes for a bowl game. Shedeur, who is the son of head coach Deion Sanders, faced a tough time on the field as he was sacked four times and had to leave the game twice due to injuries.
The young quarterback experienced numbness in his hand, which made it impossible for him to grip the ball effectively. After consulting with the medical team, Sanders made the difficult decision not to continue playing, prioritizing his health and well-being.
This devastating loss dropped Colorado’s overall record to 4-7, effectively eliminating them from any bowl game considerations. Coach Sanders expressed his disappointment in the team’s performance, emphasizing that it did not reflect their true identity as a football program.
The game itself was a struggle for the Colorado team, as they trailed 21-7 after the first quarter and failed to find a response to Washington State’s impressive offense. Their inability to contain the opponents’ offensive power contributed to the overwhelming defeat.
Despite this setback, the team is determined to finish their regular season on a high note. Their final game will be against Utah on November 25, providing them with an opportunity to show their resilience and end the season on a positive note.
As the season comes to a close, Colorado’s football program will continue to evaluate their performance and work towards improvements for future seasons. While this loss may be disheartening, the team remains hopeful for a brighter future and will use this experience to fuel their motivation moving forward.
