Saturday was another big day for Colorado, head coach Deion Sanders, and quarterback Shedeur Sanders as the No. 22 ranked Buffaloes routed rival Nebraska 36-14.
Leading 29-7 late in the fourth quarter, Shedeur Sanders broke the pocket on 3rd down at the Nebraska 6 yard-line and ran it in himself for an easy touchdown. Once he reached the endzone, Sanders broke out his dad's signature shuffle celebration from the elder Sanders' playing days.

Deion looked on from the Colorado sideline, holding up one finger as he prepared his special teams unit for the extra point.
The rushing touchdown capped off another massive game for Shedeur Sanders as he went 31-43 for 393 yards and two touchdowns throw the air. In two games this season, the Jackson State transfer has thrown for 903 yards, six touchdowns and zero interceptions all while playing two Power 5 opponents in Nebraska and TCU.
Deion Sanders already has Colorado rolling just two games into his tenure as head coach. The Buffs are 2-0 and are currently ranked No. 22 in the AP Poll despite starting the season with a win total of just 4.5 heading into the 2023 season.
