The USC Trojans were fearless in their win over Colorado, and pass-rusher Jamil Muhammad wasn't afraid to take some shots at his opponent's head coach in Deion Sanders after making a huge play.
The Colorado Buffaloes suffered a humbling loss last week against the Oregon Ducks, where they lost 42-6. While head coach Deion Sanders won't be happy with the back-to-back losses, Colorado is missing their superstar two-way player Travis Hunter, and two other top defensive backs, including Sanders's son, Shilo.
The Buffaloes are once again struggling with a top-ranked opponent, as the USC Trojans have had a pretty easy day offensively. Defensively, USC also has applied strong pressure against Colorado quarterback Shadeur Sanders.
Trojans' linebacker Jamil Muhammad sacked Sanders during the third quarter and decided to add insult to injury. While leading by three touchdowns, after sacking Sanders on third down, Muhammad did Deion Sanders's signature shuffle after forcing the Colorado punt. This comes a week after Oregon head coach Dan Lanning led a locker room speech headlined by his "They're playing for clicks, we're playing for wins" line.

Barring a major comeback by Colorado, the Trojans will hand them their second straight loss, dropping them to 3-2 on the season. Colorado jumped out to a 3-0 start on the season but have dropped their first two games of conference play. Colorado is losing 41-21 midway through the third quarter at home but should have a good chance to get their first conference win next week against Arizona State. Colorado has already tripled their win total from a season ago.
Head coach Deion Sanders won't be happy with the outcome of the game, but has laid a foundation for the Buffs for next season and beyond.
