Quarterback Shedeur Sanders threw for 510 yards and 4 TDs on 38-for-47 passing, while two-way player Travis Hunter finished with 119 yards receiving on 11 catches, to go along with a pass defensed and 3 total tackles.

As a result, both Sanders and Hunter saw their Heisman Trophy odds move to +4000 after the Colorado win.

The Buffaloes' season win total over/under opened at 4.5 at many books before bettors hammered the under and moved the line to 3.5. Anyone who was brave enough to take the over on either of those lines can check off one of the precious wins they'll need this 2023 college football season.
