It’s been a rough few weeks for Colorado.

Deion Sanders and the Buffaloes dropped their fourth straight game and sixth in their last seven Saturday against No. 21 Arizona, 34-31.

With the game tied at 31, Colorado was primed to take a late lead as Alejandro Mata lined up for a 44-yard field goal attempt with about five minutes left. 

The attempt missed, giving the Wildcats the ball at their own 26 with 4:57 to go.

Arizona drove the field, killing clock in the process, and reached Colorado’s 1-yard line with under a minute left. With the Buffaloes out of timeouts, the Wildcats knelt the clock out, and Tyler Loop knocked down a walk-off, 24-yard field goal as time expired.

The Wildcats outscored Colorado 10-0 in the fourth quarter.

The Buffaloes opened up the season by winning their first three games but are 1-6 since.

Shedeur Sanders ran for a score and threw for two more, finishing with 262 yards passing to go over the 10,000-yard mark for his career.

The Wildcats have their best record through 10 games since 2017. That was also the last year they were bowl eligible.
