Colorado tops No. 17 TCU in Deion Sanders' 1st game as coach

FORT WORTH, Texas -- Shedeur Sanders stood up after his news conference, pulled out his phone and snapped a picture of the stat sheet, the one that showed 510 passing yards -- the most ever by a Colorado quarterback.

The picture wouldn't serve as a memento, but a receipt, the one Sanders, his Hall of Fame father and coach, and the rest of the Colorado Buffaloes were collecting after Saturday's 45-42 season-opening win over No. 17 TCU. They had heard how they wouldn't win many games, how their revamped roster had too many holes and how Sanders, Travis Hunter and others would struggle transitioning from Jackson State, an FCS team in the SWAC, to college football's top level.
