Gong 1-4 over their last five games, the Colorado Buffaloes need some much-needed motivation, and head coach Deion Sanders brought it to them during Thursday's meeting leading up to the matchup against Oregon State in Week 10 with an unconventional motivational video.

The motivation? A wildlife video.
The video he showed them explained the difference between a buffalo and a cow.
After the video, Coach Prime told his team, "We need some Buffaloes, we don't need no cows."
He took the time to explain the difference between the two animals. He said that cows run from storms, whereas buffaloes run toward fury.
"I'm looking for 22 guys out of this whole entire room... offense, defense, as well as special teams, including coaches, to run into the storm. Run right in."
Heading into the final month of the season, the Buffaloes are 4-4. Two wins, and they're bowl-eligible. Of course, though, the goal is to win all remaining games and go 8-4 this season.
The Buffaloes have lost their past two games, including a 28-16 loss against UCLA at the Rose Bowl where, allegedly, they had jewelry stolen from them that was in the locker room during the game. The other loss was a double-overtime loss at home to the Stanford Cardinal, 46-43, after leading 29-0 at halftime.
To finish off the year, these are the Buffaloes games:
- vs. Oregon State
- vs. Arizona
- at Washington State
- at Utah
Right now, DraftKings Sportsbook has odds for their next two games.
Against Oregon State, they're 13.5-point home underdogs. In Week 11 against Arizona, also at home, they're six-point home underdogs.
We don't have odds yet available for Washington State and Utah, but it wouldn't be surprising if they're underdogs in both games.
So, we'll see what shows up in Week 10 at home against Oregon State—will the Buffaloes live up to their name or turn into cows?
