CU Buffaloes fall to No. 19 in AP Top 25 after thrilling win over rival CSU

DENVER (KDVR) — The University of Colorado Boulder Buffaloes fell one spot to No. 19 in the AP Top 25 poll after earning a thrilling 43-35 double overtime win over the Colorado State University Rams.

Saturday’s game rolled into early Sunday after the Buffs tied the game with 36 seconds left on a 98-yard drive by quarterback Shedeur Sanders in the fourth quarter.

Boulder was once again the center of the college football world as Fox’s “Big Noon Kickoff” and ESPN’s “College GameDay” descended on campus ahead of the Rocky Mountain Showdown.

The sold-out game was star-studded, with celebrities like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Lil Wayne coming to watch the Buffs and Rams compete.

When it was over, fans rushed the field to celebrate the win for the second year in a row.

The team travels to Eugene, Oregon next week for its first regular season game against the No. 10 University of Oregon Ducks.

The Ducks jumped from No. 13 after a 55-10 win over the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa on Saturday.

According to DraftKings, the Buffs enter the match as 19.5 point underdogs.
