Vaseline 2 months ago

Colorado football under Deion Sanders is back and the spring game will be bigger and better than ever. How can you watch Black & Gold Day?

In years past, the Colorado spring football game was nothing more than a meaningless head-to-head battle between teams that only die-hard fans cared about. However, things are different for Colorado football with Coach Prime, and Deion Sanders is turning Black & Gold Day into a spectacle.

There will be a lot more entertainment than just a spring game for fans of the Buffaloes. In this article we explain everything you need to know about Black & Gold Day.

Colorado spring game information

Date: Saturday April 27 | Time: 3:00 PM ET

Place: Folsom Field – Boulder, Colorado

How to watch: Pac-12 Network

Colorado Black & Gold Weekend Events

Of course, the spring game will headline Black & Gold Weekend, but that won’t be the only event fans can attend. The spring game itself will be one of the few spring games in college football where fans will be charged for tickets, but that’s the price you pay when your team is as exciting as the Buffaloes these days.

However, tickets are very reasonable. It only costs $15 dollars for bowl seating, and it only costs $5 for students to attend the event. Lil Wayne will also be back in Boulder. After performing before the Rocky Mountain Showdown, the Louisiana rapper will perform a show after the football game.

This will take place in the CU Events Center. There will also be a talent show on Thursday, April 25. That event kicks off the weekend and it will be a free event hosted by 5430 Alliance.

Colorado football roster/players to watch

The hype train for Colorado football last season was unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. Deion Sanders’ team started well, but ultimately only managed to win four games. However, expectations are high in Sanders’ second year as coach, and the Buffaloes will play their football in a new conference; the Big 12.

It usually takes a year or two for the rebuilt universities to display the results in the record column. Sanders’ methods to rebuild the Colorado program are unprecedented, and they are already showing results. Coach Prime has built Colorado’s roster from the ground up and built it with more transfers than ever before.

In the transfer portal, star players such as Shauder Sanders and Travis Hunter joined Colorado’s roster. Both players came from Jackson State (Sanders’ previous destination as head coach) and will once again lead the way for the Buffaloes this season.

Sanders is one of the top returning quarterbacks in the country and could have a shot at the Heisman Trophy this year. Hunter is a two-way superstar who thrives on both ends of the court, something we haven’t seen much of since the ’90s. Hunter was the nation’s number one recruit in 2022.

Both players showed their talent in Boulder last year, but the team struggled to win games late in the season — after an impressive start with wins over TCU, Nebraska and Colorado State — due to issues in the trenches. Sanders has once again used the transfer portal to expand the roster, and the team will have more strength up front. Colorado even brought in the best high school offensive linemen (Jordan Seaton).

The team now has enough talent on the offensive and defensive lines to improve the skill positions, but unfortunately the transfer portal has hurt them as much as it has helped them. At least 14 players have decided to leave Boulder since March, with some expected to play major roles this year. Most notably, Cormani McClain – who was the number one cornerback recruit last year – has decided to enter the transfer portal.

Sanders downplayed the team’s recent losses, and you really can’t blame him. Boulder is now a hot spot for recruits and transfers, and Sanders is sure to bring in even more talent in the near future. In fact, Colorado Football just added Dayon Hayes, a player who last played for Pittsburgh and was one of the best pass rushers in the portal.

Colorado’s roster is constantly changing, but for now they will play with what they have in the spring game. Colorado’s Black & Gold Day is pure entertainment and you won’t want to miss any of it. Deion Sanders will certainly have something special in store for the spring game in Colorado as well.
