12:21 17.09.2023

In a thrilling double overtime game, Shedeur Sanders led the Colorado Buffaloes to a remarkable comeback victory against the Colorado State Rams, with a final score of 43-35. Sanders showcased his skills on the field, completing 38-of-47 passes for 348 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception. Two of his touchdowns came during the overtime period, solidifying the Buffaloes' victory.

The defining moment of the game occurred in regulation, when Sanders orchestrated an impressive 98-yard touchdown drive. With just 2 yards left to go, the young quarterback channeled the spirit of NFL legend Tom Brady, referring to it as "Brady mode." Sanders stated that he often communicates with Brady after each game, as they share a connection through their endorsement deals with Brady Brand, Brady's athletic wear company.

The comeback drive and subsequent victory drew attention from sports enthusiasts, including Brady himself. On Instagram, Brady posted a picture of Sanders wearing sunglasses during his ESPN interview and expressed his admiration, writing, "I just want to go Shedeur mode at some point in my life." Sanders' performance had undoubtedly left a lasting impression on both Brady and football fans alike.

The win not only boosted the Buffaloes' record to 3-0 but also highlighted the team's resilience and determination. Head coach Deion Sanders, Shedeur's father, praised his team, stating, "We showed that we have no surrender or give-up in us. They never doubted themselves." The victory also symbolized a special night for the Sanders family, as Shilo Sanders, a defensive back for Colorado, scored a pick-six in the first quarter.

The game itself was a spectacle, with national networks ESPN and Fox Sports choosing to hold their pregame shows in Boulder. Dwayne The Rock Johnson even made an appearance on the Buffaloes' sideline, adding to the excitement surrounding the team.

Despite the triumph, the Buffaloes face a challenging schedule ahead. Next week, they will travel to Oregon to face the Ducks, followed by a matchup against USC the following week at Folsom Field. Additionally, the team will be without one of their star players, Travis Hunter, who suffered a late hit during the game and may be sidelined for a few weeks, according to Deion Sanders.

The victory against Colorado State not only secured a memorable win for the Buffaloes but also solidified their position as a must-watch team in college football. With Shedeur Sanders leading the charge, Colorado is poised for an eventful Pac-12 conference play as they continue to captivate audiences with their electrifying performances.
