Colorado football fans go wild on refs after Travis Hunter’s 2 called-back touchdowns vs. Utah

In Saturday's season-ending game at Utah, Colorado football has nothing to play for other than pride. Despite the Buffs' precipitous midseason slump

 two-way playmaker Travis Hunter did his best to shine in his team's season finale. If only the officials would comply.

During Saturday's game, Hunter had two touchdown catches called back following replay review on the same series. Colorado supporters were furious with the Pac-12

officials when his second potential touchdown—a diving, highlight-reel grab in the back of the end zone on a go route—was called back, venting their fury on social media.

Hunter made an early impact on both sides of the ball after transferring from Jackson State, where he played as a freshman under CU coach Deion Sanders. In the early going of the season,

the No. 1 overall recruit in the high school class of 2022 more than lived up to that billing, aiding the Buffs to wins over TCU and Nebraska with excellent play at both cornerback and wide receiver.

A lacerated liver in Week 3 kept Hunter out for a few weeks, and Colorado, which was not bowl eligible after dropping five straight games, faced considerably tougher Pac-12 

 competition when he returned to the field. He had 49 catches for 614 yards and four touchdowns as a wide receiver, as well as three interceptions, five passes defensed, and 27 stops as a cornerback.
