Colorado Player Apologizes For Altercation With Oregon Fans

Colorado Buffaloes player Brendan Gant apologized after getting into an altercation with Oregon Ducks fans on Saturday.

Ahead of the Colorado Buffaloes road game against the Oregon Ducks, the college football world awaited the result, and the tensions were high, including those of the players such as Buffaloes linebacker Brendan Gant, who has apologized for his interaction with a Ducks fan pre-game.

On X, Gant posted an apology at 11:39 AM ET on September 24 in three separate posts. 

The apology comes after the interaction seen below, which former Ducks quarterback and top 1999 NFL Draft pick Akili Smith posted. 

As you can see, Gant, who's still not listed on any Buffaloes depth chart, including his No. 38, still assigned to Jacob Politte on Ourlads, ripped a yellow bandana off a fan's head who was facing away from him. 

As mentioned, Gant took to X to apologize. 

"Yesterday after the game I made a wrong decision toward a fan outta frustration cause of a fan just being a fan. To that fanbase and more specifically that individual,I know better and to myself that was unacceptable and could have been avoided. I do apologize because that is not me, my character or who I strive to be and that is definitely not Colorado football. #stayblessed," Gant, a graduate transfer from Florida State, said. 

"And one last thought for anybody, I DONT BOTHER ANYONE unless the bother me first. At the end of the day wrong is wrong but dont create your own narrative [thumbs up emoji]. #stayblessed," he finished.

Before coming to Colorado this season, Gant played for the Seminoles from 2019-2022. He played 856 snaps, accruing 80 tackles and one interception. 

Against the Ducks, Gant played three snaps—two on run defense and one in coverage. He had one missed tackle in the Buffaloes massive 42-6 loss. 

The Buffaloes return home to take on Caleb Williams and the USC Trojans.
