The Colorado Buffaloes fell out of the AP Top 25 and Coaches Poll following their 42-6 loss to the Oregon Ducks on Saturday.
The Buffs were previously ranked #19, but they were never going to stay in the poll after such a poor performance. Everything went wrong in Eugene. The offensive line couldn’t protect Shedeur Sanders, the passing game was ineffective and the run game nonexistent. Oregon QB Bo Nix torched the secondary and a run game led by Bucky Irving had no trouble moving the ball against CU’s overmatched defense.
Maybe this loss lights a fire under the Buffs now that the hype has clearly dissipated.
