Colorado Buffaloes scored a victory over Colorado State Saturday evening. If you went to bed, you missed out! For us who stayed awake until the early AM to watch this showdown, we were the LUCKY ONES.
Shedeur Sanders threw a TD pass to Michael Harrison in the second OT after leading the drive to tie the game with 36 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, and No. 18 Colorado rallied to beat Colorado State 43-35. Sanders connected with Harrison for an 18-yard score and then found an open Xavier Weaver on the 2-point conversion.
The Colorado defense took it from there, with Trevor Woods intercepting Brayden Fowler-Nicolosi’s pass on fourth-and-23 to end the game at nearly 12:30 AM. (My time was 1:30 AM).
It was glorious… And I don’t even care for college football in it to the very end. Now I’m hooked.
Leading up to game day Colorado State coach Jay Norvell trying to fire up his team stepped in it with this comment: ‘he takes his hat and glasses off when he talks to “grown-ups” because that’s what his mother taught him.’
Referring to Deion Sanders, Sanders’s signature look is a hat and sunglasses.
Sanders fired back:
“I’m minding my own business watching some film, trying to get ready, trying to get out here and be the best coach I can be and I look up and I read some bull junk that they did said about us, once again,” Sanders told his team at practice Thursday. “Why would you want to talk about us when we don’t talk about nobody? All we do is go out here, work our butts off, and do our job on Saturday. But when they give us ammunition … they done mess around and made it what?” ‘PERSONAL’
Then on game day Sanders had this to say, WATCH:

I’ll conclude that I’m gonna be on this ride for a while this game and all the hype will last me for a while. I’m ready for the next game Saturday, September 2:30 PM Colorado vs. Oregon. Both teams have ridden an explosive offense to a 3-0 start.
Deion Sanders has gotten everyone’s attention by blowing expectations through the roof.
ESPN’s projections still aren’t favoring the Buffaloes.
ESPN’s Matchup Predictor gives Oregon a 93.9 percent probability of winning Saturday’s matchup at Autzen Stadium.
