Buffs Drop Out of Top 25 After Bad Loss in Oregon

Colorado and Deion Sanders fell out of The Associated Press Top 25 college football poll Sunday after a resounding loss in one of the weekend's showcase games.


The Buffaloes spread and money line were the top two bets of the week and the sportsbooks made out like bandits as a result.

Bo Nix threw three touchdown passes and the No. 10 Ducks emphatically slammed the brakes on Deion Sanders’ “Cinderella story,” routing what was the 19th-ranked Buffaloes 42-6 on Saturday.

“The Cinderella story’s over, men. They’re fighting for clicks, we’re fighting for wins. There’s a difference,” Oregon head coach Dan Lanning told his team in front of ESPN’s cameras.

After the game, Lanning was more reserved.

“I think that team’s heading in the right direction. I think that coach is doing a phenomenal job,” Lanning said. “I get a little passionate at times. I need to humble myself a little bit. This is one game.”

Sanders, known affectionately as Coach Prime, has turned around a Colorado program that won just a single game last year.  He brought aboard 67 new scholarship players and opening the season with wins over TCU, Nebraska and last weekend’s double-overtime thriller against Colorado State.
