CU Buffs handed 42-6 defeat by Oregon Ducks, photos

EUGENE, Ore. — Even at 3-0, darlings of the nation, Deion Sanders warned those jumping onto the Buffs Bandwagon — some seats might’ve just come open, by the way — that CU was still about a half-dozen or so “dawgs” away from where he wanted the program to be.

On Saturday, it became painfully clear, right away, that most of those missing pieces are along the offensive and defensive lines.

The Buffs allowed 240 rushing yards — 161 in the first half alone — and 522 yards of total offense to the tenth-ranked Ducks, who scored on five of their first six possessions, led 35-0 at the half and cruised to a 42-6 win over the No. 19 Buffs.

“I think that was a good old fashioned butt-kicking,” Sanders, the Buffs’ first-year coach, said after suffering his first loss at CU and largest margin of defeat ever as a college coach. “No excuses. No nothing. Their coaches did a heck of a job preparing their team. Obviously, we didn’t. I mean, that was a really good, old-fashioned butt-kicking.”
