2023 Colorado Buffaloes Football Preview

The Colorado Buffaloes are coming off a disappointing 2022 season, in which they finished with a 3-9 record. However, there is reason for optimism heading into 2023, as new head coach Deion Sanders has brought in a number of talented transfers, including quarterback Shedeur Sanders, wide receiver Travis Hunter, and running back Alton McCaskill.

Key Players

  • Shedeur Sanders: The younger brother of Deion Sanders, Shedeur is a dual-threat quarterback who threw for 4,600 yards and 39 touchdowns in 2022 at Jackson State. He is expected to be a major difference-maker for the Buffaloes in 2023.
  • Travis Hunter: Hunter is one of the most highly-touted recruits in the country, and he is expected to be a star at wide receiver for the Buffaloes. He caught 82 passes for 1,409 yards and 17 touchdowns in 2022 at Jackson State.
  • Alton McCaskill: McCaskill is a bruising running back who rushed for 1,000 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2022 at Houston. He will give the Buffaloes a much-needed boost in the running game.

2022 Statistics

  • Overall record: 3-9
  • Offensive points per game: 23.9
  • Defensive points per game: 44.5
  • Total offense: 3,854 yards
  • Total defense: 5,523 yards


The Buffaloes have a lot of potential in 2023, but they will need to find some consistency on both sides of the ball. If they can do that, they could be a dark horse in the Pac-12 South. I predict that they will win 6-7 games in 2023.


The 2023 Colorado Buffaloes are a team on the rise. With Deion Sanders at the helm and a number of talented transfers, the Buffs have the potential to make some noise in the Pac-12. I will be watching them closely this season.
