Sportsman of the Week Ending 10/15/2023


This blog has always liked big upsets and nothing is better than an unbelievable performance in such.  Stanford pulled of an unbelievable, and improbably upset of Colorado after trailing 29-0 at half time.  Being a late game on a Friday night, few fans stayed up.  But they should have.  Stanford went full video game mode in the second half, scoring the first 26 points, then the last the last 10.  Of those 36 points, Stanford WR Elic Ayomanor scored 14 of them.  He scored another TD in overtime and ended the night with 294 yards on 13 catches, including a 97 yard grab and run.  And he did it all, catches in traffic, catches and make a guy miss, and there was nothing the Buffs could do about it.  The sheen is off the Buffaloes, but credit to Stanford and credit to Ayomanor, the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
