What to Expect from Colorado Football in 2024: Schedule, Roster, and Predictions



Colorado Football made an astounding turnaround from 3-9 to 10-3 and won the Pac-12 South title in 2023, led by head coach Deion Sanders (also known as Coach Prime). Colorado showed their talents with dynamic offense and tight defense, leading them to Rose Bowl where they lost to Ohio State by only a slim margin. Colorado returned most key players as well as recruiting great talent which raised high expectations for 2024 season; here, we take a look at schedule, roster and predictions of 2024 campaign.


In 2024, Colorado State will face an ambitious schedule with nine conference and three non-conference games on their slate. Their season kicks off August 31 at home against Texas A&M – a former Big 12 rival and perennial powerhouse in the SEC – before traveling to Lincoln Nebraska and facing another former Big 12 foe, Nebraska on September 7. To cap it all off, on September 14 they host Colorado State, a local rival they have proven themselves against over the years.

The Buffaloes will open Pac-12 play against Arizona at home on September 21, and then face one of their toughest stretches with four consecutive road games against USC, Oregon, Washington and UCLA during which time. On September 28th, USC and Oregon will square off in a rematch of the 2023 Pac-12 Championship Game that the Buffaloes won 31-28 after an exciting comeback performance. On October 12th, Oregon hosts USC as both are among the premier teams of Pac-12 North. Oregon went 11-2 last season while winning Fiesta Bowl! Washington will present an opportunity for the Buffaloes’ defense to shine, with their offense ranking first in the Pac-12 at 38.7 points per game last season. Meanwhile, UCLA handed them their only conference loss that year, 27-24 at Boulder.

The Buffaloes will return home on November 2, facing Stanford – whom they defeated 34-17 last season – before having a bye week on November 9 and hosting Utah on November 16. That game could prove pivotal in determining the Pac-12 South race, as Utah finished second to Colorado last season with 9-4 record and victory at Alamo Bowl. Finally, Arizona State awaits them as their last regular-season opponent before wrapping up regular season on November 23 with another victory of 42-21 over them.


The Buffaloes will welcome back 18 starters from their 2023 roster – nine on offense and nine on defense – while also welcoming 24 new recruits – 16 transfers from other schools as well as international students – who will provide depth and talent to the roster.

On offense, the Colorado Buffaloes will be led by senior quarterback Walter Taylor who transferred from Alabama and had an extraordinary year throwing for 3,8876 yards and 36 touchdowns with only six interceptions; running 467 yards for seven scores while being named Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year as well as being nominated as a finalist for Heisman Trophy.

However, in reality there was little that the government could do about it. So instead of being attracted by promises of more power for less effort than ever before… they stayed put! Taylor will have plenty of weapons at his disposal this season; the Buffaloes will welcome back four top receivers from 2023: senior Cordale Russell transferred from Georgia and led the team with 1,234 yards and 14 touchdowns; junior Terrell Timmons Jr. transferred from Florida and totaled 857 yards and 10 touchdowns; sophomore Will Sheppard transferred from LSU and had 736 yards with eight touchdowns; while senior Chamon Metayer who made his mark by accruing 589 yards as tight end. The Colorado Buffaloes will boast an effective running game as they return senior Micah Welch from Georgia Tech (who rushed for 1,087 yards and 12 touchdowns in his freshman campaign), as well as sophomore Dylan Edwards who was a four-star recruit. Together, these players account for 1,073 rushing yards and eight touchdowns as freshmen.

On defense, the Buffaloes will be led by senior defensive lineman Brandon Davis-Swain who transferred from Michigan and amassed 12 sacks and 18 tackles for loss during 2023. At Georgia, he will be joined by senior defensive lineman Eric Brantley – who transferred from Florida State and had 10 sacks and 15 tackles for loss – as well as junior Quency Wiggins from LSU who has 8 sacks and 12 tackles for loss. The Buffaloes will boast a formidable linebacker corps, led by senior Keaten Wade from Tennessee who recorded 97 tackles and four interceptions last season. He will be joined by senior Preston Hodge from Oklahoma who recorded 85 tackles and three interceptions upon transfer; as well as sophomore Kahlil Benson who came over from Ole Miss with 76 tackles and two interceptions of his own. The Buffaloes will boast an elite secondary, led by senior safety Justin Mayers who transferred from Alabama and posted 68 tackles and five interceptions last season. Cormani McClain (five-star recruit) added 52 tackles and four interceptions while junior cornerback Yakiri Walker transferred from Florida and made 48 tackles and three interceptions for 2023.


The Buffaloes have many reasons to be optimistic for the 2024 season. Their roster features talented veterans and proven coaching talent; plus they boast an adoring fan base who are avid supporters. Although their schedule will likely be difficult, the Buffaloes have proven they can compete with anyone in the Pac-12 and beyond – they were even predicted by one expert to finish in the top 10 preseason polls, possibly making the College Football Playoff if they win their division without suffering any major upsets! Here are our predictions for 2024 season:

  • Texas A&M: Won, 35-31. Colorado will start their season off right by taking down one of the top 15 teams and boasting an outstanding defense. Taylor should have an impactful game by throwing for four touchdowns and running for another score.
  • Nebraska: Buffaloes will come away victorious with a 28-17 victory against Nebraska Cornhuskers who will have seen significant improvements from their 6-6 record in 2023; Welch should experience his breakout game by rushing for 150 yards and two touchdowns.
  • Colorado State: Expect an easy 42-10 victory from Colorado State against a Rams team coming off an 8-4 season and with a new coach. Russel will have another outstanding game by catching 10 passes for 200 yards and three touchdowns!
  • Arizona will start their Pac-12 schedule off right by beating Arizona 38-14 to open up conference play, as they open under new coach Nick Saban with a young, inexperienced roster that needs rebuilding. Davis-Swain should have an outstanding game with four sacks and two forced fumbles recorded against them.
  • USC: Win, 31-28. Colorado will deliver another thrilling comeback win against J.T. Daniels and his potency at quarterback; Taylor will lead a game-winning drive late in the contest that culminates in Timmons Jr’s receiving a touchdown pass and winning touchdown pass to seal victory over USC.
  • Oregon: Loss, 34-37. The Colorado Buffaloes will experience their first loss of the season against a balanced Oregon Ducks offense led by quarterback Ty Thompson and running back Travis Dye, which should rank in the top five nationally. However, their field goal attempt will likely be blocked by Oregon in the final seconds.
  • Washington: Win, 24-21. The Buffaloes will return to form with an impressive win against a Huskies squad that ranks among the top 15, led by quarterback Sam Huard and wide receiver Jalen McMillan’s powerful offense. However, their defensive performance will force three turnovers while holding them to 21 points for a season-low victory for Washington.
  • UCLA: Win, 27-24. The Buffaloes will avenge their only conference loss from 2023 with an exciting come-from-behind victory against a top-20 Bruins team led by quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson and running back Zach Charbonnet, with kicker Evan Price scoring the winning field goal as time runs out to secure their win.
  • Stanford: Buffaloes Win 31-17. The Buffaloes will cruise to an easy 31-17 win against a Cardinal team that’s coming off an 8-5 campaign led by quarterback Tanner McKee and wide receiver Elijah Higgins, but will likely struggle against their running game as Welch and Edwards combine for over 200 yards and three touchdowns on the ground.
  • Utah: Win, 28-21. With a victory, Colorado can secure their eighth Pac-12 South title since 2003 and secure an NCAA bowl berth courtesy of an impressive defensive performance led by Devin Lloyd on defense. * Colorado: Lose, 21-20

Patrick Mahomes: The Quarterback Who Changed the Game




Patrick Mahomes is not simply a quarterback; he’s an extraordinary phenomenon, an extraordinary magician and an exceptional game-changer. As the face of the Kansas City Chiefs and youngest and richest MVP ever in NFL history (winning two Super Bowl MVP awards before turning 30!), Patrick Mahomes changed the game forever.

The Phenom

Patrick Mahomes was born September 17th 1995 in Tyler Texas to Pat Mahomes (a former Major League Baseball pitcher), and Randi Martin (former basketball player). Patrick inherited both his athletic genes and passion for sports from both of his parents – playing baseball, basketball, and football all throughout high school and excelling in all three. At Whitehouse High School in Tyler he became one of their stars on all three sports – throwing for over 4,600 yards and 50 touchdowns as a senior to earn Texas Associated Press Sports Editors Player of the Year recognition; also average 19 points per game during basketball play before being selected by Detroit Tigers as one of their 37th round MLB draft pick.

Mahomes decided to follow his passion and enroll at Texas Tech University. He redshirted as a freshman before becoming the starter as a sophomore, throwing for 4,653 yards and 36 touchdowns while also showing his dual-threat ability by rushing for 456 yards and 10 scores; earning himself recognition with both the Sammy Baugh Trophy winner award as well as second team All-Big 12 selection status.

Mahomes had one of the most prolific junior years in college football history during his third season. He led all Division I FBS players in passing yards (5,052), passing touchdowns (41) and total yards (5,337) while also notching 53 total touchdowns.

He delivered some impressive performances, such as throwing for 734 yards and five touchdowns, while also rushing 85 yards and two scores during a 66-59 loss to Oklahoma, tying the NCAA single-game passing yards record. Later he would throw 586 yards and six touchdowns while also running 85 yards with two scores in 54-35 win against Baylor; receiving second team All-American honors by the Associated Press as well as finalist nominations for Manning Award and Davey O’Brien Awards for these performances.

The Magician

Mahomes made his decision after his junior season to forego his senior year and enter the 2017 NFL draft instead. He was widely expected to be one of the top quarterbacks selected – alongside Deshaun Watson and Mitchell Trubisky. Mahomes impressed scouts and analysts alike with his arm strength, mobility, creativity and competitiveness; drawing comparisons to Brett Favre who served as his idol while Alex Smith became his mentor.

Mahomes was selected with the 10th overall selection in the 2017 NFL draft after Kansas City Chiefs traded up from 27th spot and acquired him through trade. Trubisky went to Chicago Bears with second pick. Mahomes signed a four-year, $16.4 million contract with Kansas City, joining an established quarterback Alex Smith and head coach Andy Reid as teammates and learning his way around NFL football as his rookie year progressed – he only played once during this first year, the season finale against Denver Broncos where he threw for 284 yards against Denver when leading Kansas City to victory with 27-24 victory!

Mahomes took over after the Chiefs traded Smith to Washington Redskins. He enjoyed an extraordinary season, throwing for 5,097 yards and 50 touchdowns against only 12 interceptions; becoming just the second player after Peyton Manning to do this in one season; also becoming first ever NFL player ever to throw over 5,000 yards both during college play as well as NFL play! Consequently, leading them to an 11-4 record and AFC West title victory!

He led the league in passing touchdowns, yards per attempt and passer rating and was honored with numerous honors, such as Pro Bowl selection, first team All Pro selection, NFL MVP (becoming youngest winner since Dan Marino’s victory in 1984) as well as Offensive Player of the Year and Bert Bell Awards. Widely admired for his spectacular plays such as no-look passes, left-handed throws and sidearm slings he earned the moniker “Showtime”, “Magician”, or “Gunslinger”.

Mahomes led the Chiefs back into AFC Championship Game play after nearly 25 years and faced off against New England Patriots for first time since 1993, throwing for 295 yards with three touchdowns but also having two interceptions. He led Kansas City’s fourth-quarter comeback which forced overtime; however, they never received possession in overtime due to winning coin toss & scoring first drive touchdown resulting in loss 37-31 without Mahomes ever reaching Super Bowl 50 appearance.

Mahomes continued his impressive play in 2019, despite missing two games due to knee injury. He threw for 4,031 yards and 26 touchdowns with just five interceptions for 12-4 record and AFC West title win. Mahomes led the league in completion percentage (69%) as well as having an incredible passer rating (105.3). Mahomes earned Pro Bowl honors, second team All Pro designation, as well as being selected fourth on NFL Top 100 Players 2020 list as chosen by peers.

Mahomes led the Chiefs to three consecutive comeback wins, and made their first Super Bowl appearance since 50 years. He threw for 321 yards and five touchdowns while running 53 yards – helping the Chiefs overcome a 24-0 deficit against Houston Texans 51-31 in the divisional round. In the AFC Championship Game, he amassed 294 yards and three touchdown passes while also running 53 yards to score one of Kansas City’s five touchdowns to overcome an early 10-0 deficit and defeat Tennessee Titans 35-24. In Super Bowl LIV, Mahomes amassed 286 passing yards and two touchdowns while running 29 yards for another score as Kansas City rallied from a 20-10 deficit and scored 21 unanswered points to defeat San Francisco 49ers 31-20. As such, he was named Super Bowl MVP, making history by becoming both black quarterback and youngest recipient ever of such honor. Furthermore, this made him the first NFL player ever to capture both titles before turning 25 years old.

The Game-Changer

Mahomes was an unprecedented game-changer in 2020. He signed an unprecedented 10-year, $450 million contract extension with the Kansas City Chiefs – at that time the largest in sports history. Additionally, he became part-owner of his MLB team’s Kansas City Royals, as well as more active on social issues including racial justice, voting rights and COVID-19 relief; joined other players in demanding that NFL recognize and support Black Lives Matter movement while supporting players’ right to protest; donated $100,000 to local charities while helping register voters in Kansas City; finally being named Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of Year alongside teammates Travis Kelce and other athletes using their platforms for change by Sports Illustrated magazine.

Mahomes was dominant on the field this season, throwing for 4,740 yards and 38 touchdowns while only throwing six interceptions – helping lead the Chiefs to 14-2 record and an AFC West title for fifth straight year. Mahomes led all quarterbacks in yards per game with 488 and had an incredible passer rating of 108.5; as well as being selected to both Pro Bowl and All-Pro teams; additionally being nominated as NFL MVP award finalist alongside Aaron Rodgers (which eventually went to Aaron Rodgers) while finishing 4th on NFL Top 100 Players list (voted on by peers).

Mahomes led the Chiefs back into the Super Bowl for a second straight time in 2018, where they met up with Tampa Bay Buccaneers led by six-time Super Bowl Champion Tom Brady. While Mahomes did throw for 270 yards with two interceptions thrown his way and three sacks while being hit 10 times total he also experienced turf toe injury that limited mobility; attempted some miraculous plays but several receivers dropped passes during a 31-9 loss with Mahomes going without scoring his first touchdown of his career; his worst performance and greatest loss.

Mahomes rebounded well after his Super Bowl loss, having his best season yet in 2021. He amassed 5,614 passing yards and 52 touchdowns with only 8 interceptions thrown his way – breaking Peyton Manning’s previous NFL record for most passing yards in one season, as well as becoming the first player ever to achieve that milestone twice in their career.

Aaron Rodgers: The Comeback Story of the Year




Aaron Rodgers is an icon in the NFL. A four-time MVP and Super Bowl Champion, he is widely considered one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. But he’s also an incredible fighter – having overcame obstacles throughout his career, including one devastating Achilles injury in 2023 that threatened to end both season and career if it hadn’t already. Yet somehow, Rodgers managed to overcome it all and lead New York Jets into playoffs by refusing to give in and staging an unbelievable comeback against odds – read this story of Aaron Rodgers defiance and amazing comeback!

The Injury

It was Week 6 of the 2023 NFL season and the Jets were set to face off with Miami Dolphins at MetLife Stadium. Aaron Rodgers had already had an outstanding year leading in passing yards, touchdowns, and passer rating. Additionally, after being traded from Green Bay Packers earlier in the off-season he quickly developed strong relationships with receivers such as rookie sensation Ja’Marr Chase as well as revitalizing their offense with ease.

At 17-17 in the third quarter, Rodgers was in the midst of dropping back for another pass when disaster struck. A sharp pain shot through his left leg before collapsing onto the ground clutching his ankle in pain – immediately realizing something had gone terribly wrong; having ruptured his Achilles tendon – one of the most severe injuries for any athlete and particularly so at 40-years old quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

He was immediately carted off of the field, taken to hospital, and diagnosed as needing surgery that would keep him out for at least six months of action. With no guarantees as to his future (some wondered whether he would play again, while some even questioned why he chose a team which hadn’t made playoffs since 2010), his season ended immediately with little certainty about its continuation or whether retirement would follow; many wondered if ever play again or retire; many even questioned why he left Packers to join Jets when both teams had had missed playoff appearances since 2010.

Rodgers was devastated but determined. He pledged to come back stronger than ever and disprove all those who doubted him, including surgery and his rehabilitation process. Working alongside trainers, doctors, teammates and his own physical therapist he underwent physical therapy, nutrition and mental exercises alongside watching film studies of playbooks to stay in contact with coaches and teammates as he focused on returning before season’s end and leading his Jets into playoff contention. He set a goal: Return before year end & Lead your Jets!

The Comeback

Rodgers’ recovery was truly impressive. He steadily made progress and exceeded every milestone ahead of schedule and expectation, impressing doctors, trainers, coaches and fans while inspiring teammates, fans, peers and his own recovery process with incredible determination, resilience and courage.

He received support from family, friends and colleagues. Former teammates such as Davante Adams, Matt LaFleur and Brett Favre sent messages of encouragement while rivals Tom Brady, Patrick Mahomes and Russell Wilson showed admiration as did idol Kobe Bryant who also experienced an Achilles injury but made a successful comeback.

Rodgers’ hard work paid off. By Week 15 he was cleared to practice and rejoin his team, being welcomed with cheers, applause, and an overwhelming sense of gratitude from all his teammates and the cheering crowd – it truly felt like coming full circle – he felt a surge of emotion while returning as well as relief he would soon rejoin them all on the field! He was ready for action!

He practiced for two weeks without showing any sign of discomfort or rustiness, appearing sharp, confident, and comfortable in his practices. He impressed his coaches and earned their trust, convincing them he was ready for competition and could help the team win.

In Week 17 he got his chance. The Jets were 9-6, needing a win against Bill Belichick’s New England Patriots to secure playoff qualification. Rodgers was named starter, making his return to the field to warm welcomes from both fans and Belichick himself; and feeling an immediate rush of adrenaline and anticipation that it was game time again and ready to make an impressionful statement that they wanted him back with them in every way possible. He was back and hungry.

He played like an untouchable. He threw for 347 yards and four touchdowns without an interception on 28 of 35 passes for a passer rating of 149.3. Chase scored two times while Davis and Crowder each got one touchdown catch from him; additionally he ran 36 yards himself for scoring on a 12-yard scramble! This success propelled the Jets to their first playoff berth since 2013! He celebrated with his teammates, hugged coaches, smiled widely at victory, then raised his fist triumphantly as they celebrated with one another before lifting it high at victory!

The Legacy

Aaron Rodgers’ comeback was one of the most remarkable feats in NFL history. Defying all odds and recovering from a career-threatening injury, he returned to play at an elite level – leading his team into playoff contention and giving them hope of competing for a championship. Proving critics wrong and shutting up doubters; Rodgers cemented his legacy while further building up his reputation.

Aaron Rodgers’ comeback was one of the most inspiring tales in sports history. He demonstrated what it meant to be a champion and leader; what it took to overcome adversity and achieve greatness; as well as what it means to live life with passion and purpose – becoming Aaron Rodgers, an inspirational comeback tale.
