One of the biggest mismatches going into the game was the one between the defensive front of UCLA and the offensive line of Colorado on Saturday night.
The first half of the game was played exactly how it seemed, with the Bruins' defensive line relentlessly going after Colorado quarterback Shedeur Sanders.
He experienced 14 instances of pressure, 14 hits, 11 knockdowns, and 5 sacks.
Deion Sanders, the head coach of the Buffaloes, pledged change at halftime on Saturday night because his star quarterback was taking far too many hits.
Shedeur Sanders, the quarterback for Colorado, was given an injection on Saturday to help him play through his discomfort against UCLA.
According to remarks made by his father and head coach Deion Sanders during the news conference following the game.
Deion Sanders said that the injection would "block" the discomfort, although he did not provide specifics.
During his post-loss press conference, Deion Sanders emphasized the importance of strengthening quarterback protection for the sake of both the player and the offense's efficiency.
