The Colorado Buffaloes will never live up to the hype created by Deion Sanders and his masterpiece as they have given up as many points in seven games. On the one hand, when Masterpiece matches up on offense, its defense ranks as the worst in the FBS.

Coach Prime’s Buffs ranked last among 130 FBS teams in yards allowed per game, according to NCAA statistics.
The improvements have relied on their offense to win games thus far.
The Shader-led offense is averaging 34.4 points and nearly 432 yards per game, and their defense seems to pour cold water on all of their efforts.

Prime’s Buffs Defense ranked last out of 130 teams

Deion Sanders was regularly credited with making the Colorado Buffs a better team last season.
But it’s no secret that his mistakes are the reason for his victories this season.
Shadeur is already a revelation.
But the defense was weak.
The defense has improved somewhat from last season’s disappointing performance, but is still inconsistent.
Coach Prime was criticized for his lack of focus on defense and was also assessed as failing to build a strong and disciplined defense.

This season, the Buffs have allowed 473.7 yards and 35.9 points per game.
That’s a significant improvement from last season’s 509.8 yards and 45.5 points.
But that number still ranks last among the 130 FBS teams in yards allowed.
Compared to other teams they’ve played, Oregon ranks 56th with 217 YPG and USC ranks 94th with 243 YPG.
Stanford and Colorado State also ranked higher than the Buffs at 129th and 128th, respectively.
All of these teams allowed less YPG than Team Prime. Deion seems to have made some decisions about his next move in the transfer portal.
Fans will see Prime make tough decisions and D.C. He wants Kelly to resign.

The Buffs’ sudden defensive collapse at the hands of a lowly Stanford was not what Prime or Buffs fans expected. They led 29-0 at the end of the first half before giving up 19 points in the third quarter and losing 43-46 in OT.
There were warning signs.
Following the embarrassing loss, fans didn’t hesitate to voice their opinions on X (formerly Twitter) calling out Dion’s defensive coordinator Charles Kelly. Kelly felt the heat from the loss as many called for his firing.

But Coach Prime defended Kelly in a conference call after the loss to Stanford.
If the defense doesn’t step up, the Buffs’ bowling dreams will remain.
Instead of focusing on offense, counter defense and counter offense should be combined. The Buffs should have better defensive numbers against their next opponent, UCLA, as UCLA’s defense allowed just 214 YPG.
