  2022 ALL-PAC-12 CONFERENCE HONORABLE MENTION: ILB Josh Chandler-Semedo, Gr.,...Chandler-Semedo, who transferred to CU from West Virginia this past summer, didn't need a lot of time to acclimate to the Buff program. Though playing only 27 snaps coming off the bench in the opener against TCU, he had six solo tackles, including one for a loss that set the stage to come. He would start the next 11 games and proceed to finish as CU's leader in tackles with 101 (73 solo); he also led the Buffs in tackles for loss with 13 (including three quarterback sacks), and with five tackles for zero gains, that added to 18 at or behind the line of scrimmage. He also had some nice "garnish," adding eight third down stops (one on a fourth down), an interception, one pass break-up, a fumble recovery, one touchdown save, two hurries and two quarterback chase-downs (near sacks). He played the most snaps on defense (734), and had five games with 10 or more tackles with a season-high 13 against Arizona State. - Colorado Football

  Deion Sanders, known as "Prime Time" during his Hall of Fame playing career and has since transitioned into "Coach Prime," has been named the 28th full-time head football coach at the University of Colorado, athletic director Rick George announced Saturday evening. Sanders, 55, joins the CU program from Jackson State University (Jackson, Miss.), where in three seasons the Tigers compiled a 27-5 record and won back-to-back Southwestern Athletic Conference championships competing on the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) level; that mark includes a 12-0 record this season.

Jackson State defeated Southern, 43-24, in the SWAC title game on Saturday. "There were a number of highly qualified and impressive candidates interested in becoming the next head football coach at Colorado, but none of them had the pedigree, the knowledge and the ability to connect with student-athletes like Deion Sanders," George said. "Not only will Coach Prime energize our fanbase, I'm confident that he will lead our program back to national prominence while leading a team of high quality and high character." At Jackson State, Sanders achieved tremendous success on and off the field as a fierce advocate for additional exposure and a level playing field for all Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Sanders brought national attention to HBCUs, pushing for opportunities to highlight its talent and the culture. In March 2022, Sanders held a Pro Day featuring athletes from four other schools in the state of Mississippi to provide a platform in front of 22 NFL teams and the Canadian Football League. In April 2022, Jackson State became the first HBCU to have its spring football game televised live nationally on ESPNU. - Colorado Football

  Shedeur Sanders threw for four touchdowns, including two on three first-quarter turnovers, staking Jackson State to a big early lead on the way to routing Southern 43-24 in Saturday's Southwest Athletic Conference championship that was possibly Deion Sanders' final game as Tigers coach. Reports swirled before the game that Sanders would announce his departure from the FCS program after three seasons to become head coach at Colorado. Sanders acknowledged an offer from the school earlier this week and added that he had talked to other FBS programs about vacancies. Colorado's board of regents called a special meeting for Sunday but hasn't commented on any candidates taking over the Buffaloes. JSU (12-0) quashed any questions about Sanders' future being a distraction by completing the first unbeaten regular season in school history and claiming its second consecutive SWAC championship. The Tigers' top-ranked defense set the tone by quickly pouncing on the Jaguars for three turnovers in eight plays in the first quarter.

Shedeur Sanders, the Hall of Fame coach's son, and the Tigers easily converted the takeaways into a 26-0 lead after 15 minutes, a run boosted by Sy'veon Wilkerson's 1-yard TD run two plays after Herman Smith III's 37-yard interception return. Two fumbles created chances for Sanders to hit Shane Hooks for TD passes of 14 and 40 yards and two-point conversions to Kevin Coleman Jr. Sanders' 14-yard TD pass to Coleman made it 33-7 at halftime, but Southern (7-5) didn't quit and even got within 36-24 late in the in third quarter on Glendon McDaniel's 42-yard TD run. Sanders, the SWAC's offensive player of the year, completed 31 of 44 passes for 305 yards. Hooks caught five passes for 98 yards and Wilkerson rushed 15 times for 61 yards. McDaniel was 15 of 34 passing for 220 yards and a TD for Southern. The Tigers advanced to the Celebration Bowl for historically Black colleges on Dec. 17 in Atlanta against Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference champion North Carolina Central. The Tigers' victory improved Sanders to 27-5 as coach of the FCS program and came days after he was named SWAC coach of the year for the second consecutive season. - Jackson State/AP College Football

  Although action doesn't officially start until Monday, among the reported quarterbacks in, or planning to be to enter the transfer portal as of Dec. 1 is Colorado's Brendon Lewis: He started all 12 games last season as a redshirt freshman, then played in two games this season. He opened the season as the starter, didn't play at all in the second game, played as a backup in the third game and that was it. Lewis didn't put up notable numbers, but he also played in two bad offenses. - NFL Draft Scout and online sources

  Freshman Travis Hunter, a two-way player who was widely considered the top recruit in the class of 2022, returned an interception for a touchdown and caught a 19-yard TD pass to help Jackson State beat Alcorn State 24-13 Saturday to complete the first 11-0 regular season in program history.
