Deion Sanders believes Colorado can make the 2024-25 CFP after a 4-8 season.

The always-optimistic Deion Sanders sees no reason why Colorado cannot compete for a berth in the College Football Playoff next season.

Sanders stated on FS1's Undisputed (beginning at 1:18 p.m.) that the Buffaloes "most definitely" have the potential to make the playoffs by 2024.

The path to the College Football Playoff will become easier next season when the field is expanded to 12 teams.

It will be intriguing to watch how Colorado does in Sanders' second season as head coach and in a new conference. 

The Buffaloes are returning to the Big 12, after spending the previous 13 seasons in the Pac-12.

This new Big 12 will exclude Oklahoma and Texas, both of which will join the SEC. 

This could allow a new program to emerge as the dominant power in the conference.

Since the Big 12's inception in 1996, the Sooners and Longhorns have won seven of the previous nine titles, as well as 18 of 28, including shared wins.

Colorado has not won a conference championship since 2001. To qualify for the playoffs, teams do not need to win their conference championships.

The six highest-ranked conference champions earn an automatic bid, while the top four clubs receive a bye into the quarterfinals.
