The Colorado Buffaloes finished their first season under head coach Deion Sanders with a 4-8 record this year. However, Colorado star Travis Hunter is adamant that better days are ahead for the program.

Colorado got out to a hot start on the year. A 3-0 start had fans eager about the future of the program.

Things took a drastic turn the rest of the way. The Buffaloes won just one of their final nine games of the season, which has completely shifted the view of the program in the eyes of most fans.

Despite this, Travis Hunter is confident that Colorado will be far better next season in the second year under Deion Sanders.

“You know, it was a hard season for us,” said Hunter on his Bleacher Report podcast. “We were a group of men coming together that we have never seen before. Next year, best believe we’re winning more than four games. We coming different next year.”

Next season will also be a big year for Hunter individually, as he will then become eligible for the NFL Draft in 2025. Hunter also spoke about some of his individual goals for next season.

“Expectation for next year, just go out and ball. Trying to become the highest draft pick I can. Trying to win something with my team and get the National Championship. Just trying to get everything we didn’t get this year. If you’re fans of us, stay with us, we got y’all.”

Hunter was in the midst of an excellent season before suffering an injury in Week 3, which caused him to miss three games. He then got his season back on track after his return and had a solid end of the season, scoring touchdowns in three of his last four games.

Only time will tell whether Colorado does indeed turn things around next season. But it sure seems like Hunter will be extremely productive again next season individually.
