Deion Sanders gets his first taste of the Rocky Mountain Showdown rivalry game when the No. 18 Colorado Buffaloes (2-0) host head coach Jay Norvell and the Colorado State Rams (0-1) at Folsom Field on Saturday. Sanders’ Buffs are the talk of the sports world, going from a 1-11 program a year ago to a nationally ranked team with a pair of top Heisman Trophy contenders in quarterback Shedeur Sanders and two-way sensation Travis Hunter. CU opened its season with a 45-42 upset win over TCU, and followed it up with a 36-14 blowout win over Nebraska in the home debut for Coach Prime. Colorado State had a bye in Week 2, and lost its season opener to Washington State 50-24. Redshirt freshman Brayden Fowler-Nicolosi is taking over for Clay Millen as CSU’s starting quarterback.
