College Wire Pac-12 stars in Week 1 feature Colorado playmakers

The USC Trojan offense roared in Week 1, scoring over 50 points. The defense also scored a touchdown in the 66-14 week over Nevada. Playmaking was abundant for the Men of Troy in their latest win. Yet, if we were to identify the very best playmakers in the Pac-12 from the past weekend, we can acknowledge that the Colorado Buffaloes had an even better weekend than USC. It’s not that the Trojans didn’t play well; they did. It’s just that Colorado achieved a bigger result and pulled off a surprise which rightly gained national attention.

College Wire looked at the biggest Pac-12 stars from Week 1 of the 2023 college football season. Colorado undeniably and appropriately took center stage.

College Wire’s Patrick Conn provided a statistical overview of Colorado quarterback Shedeur Sanders, complete with a brief comment.

The numbers: 38/47 | 510 Yards | 10.9 YPA | 4-0 TD-INT

Conn’s comment:

“The debut of Shedeur Sanders for Colorado was a special one. After he led the offense to 565 yards of total offense and 45 points. His performance was must-see TV and it showed that the Buffs were here to win some games in 2023.”
