He finished 38-for-47 on the day with four touchdowns in the Buffs’ 45-42 win.
Sanders was in complete control of the offense in the Texas heat. The Jackson State transfer hit passes at all levels and showed poise in the pocket while being harassed by the Horned Frogs’ defense. Six different receivers caught passes from the junior QB with four of them eclipsing the 100-yard mark. His best pass came when the team needed it the most on a third-and-16 with CU down four.
So we agree, everyone loves Sanders to Hunter combo? pic.twitter.com/J76FLBUxjb

Tyler Hansen held the previous record with 474 yards passing against California in 2011. Sanders shattered that record with a considerable amount of help from Dylan Edwards, who hauled in 135 receiving yards.
DYLAN EDWARDS DOES IT AGAIN 😱
