Shedeur Sanders was 22-for-35 passing for 262 yards and two touchdowns during Saturday’s 34-31 loss versus Arizona. He also had 13 rushes for 29 yards with one touchdown.
Sanders deserved credit for a gritty performance where he kept his team competitive throughout the contest. In the end, Arizona had the last opportunity to score. Colorado struggles with penalties and other missed opportunities, but Sanders is mostly blameless when it comes to the Buffaloes’ shortcomings. Sanders has thrown for a whopping 3,144 yards and 26 touchdowns this season.
Washington State Cougars Game Notes
Cameron Ward was 34-for-59 passing for 354 yards, three touchdowns and one interception during Saturday’s 42-39 defeat against California. He also had 14 rushes for six yards with one touchdown.
Ward’s arm ignited once again Saturday, although his defense was unable to hold off the Bears. The Cougars fell off after a dynamic start, caused primarily by inconsistent defense and a predictable offensive playbook that other defenses were able to exploit. Despite those issues, Ward his still tearing it up in the Pac-12, with 3,131 passing yards, 20 touchdowns and only five interceptions. He also has six rushing touchdowns to his credit.
