The Colorado football team is the biggest story in sports and is being featured on national television for the fourth week in a row. The Week 4 game begins at 1:30 p.m. MT and will be nationally televised ABC.

The Buffaloes are ranked 19th in the latest Associated Press college football poll after starting the season with wins over TCU, Nebraska and Colorado State.
Colorado (3-0) defeated Colorado State 43-35 early Sunday in front of a packed house full of celebrities in Boulder.
CU trailed most of the game, but Buffs quarterback Shedeur Sanders threw a winning TD pass to Michael Harrison in the second overtime after leading a 98-yard drive to tie the game with 36 seconds left in the fourth to balance quarters.
ESPN’s “College GameDay” and FOX’s “Big Noon Kickoff” pregame shows each took place in Boulder for the first Rocky Mountain Showdown since 2019, which aired on ESPN.
Next week, the Buffaloes host the University of Southern California Trojans on Saturday, September 30th. The fifth-ranked USC Trojans are led by Heisman Trophy winner Caleb Williams.
The Pac-12 announced Monday that the game will begin at 10 a.m. MT on Sept. 30 and will be televised nationally on FOX. It will be the third time in the first five games that CU has appeared in FOX’s midday slot.
