No. 18 Colorado got the scoring rolling early in Saturday night’s rivalry game against Colorado State and it was a son of coach Deion Sanders right at the center of the action.
No, we’re not talking about quarterback Shedeur Sanders. It was defensive back Shilo who got the Buffaloes on the board with an 80-yard interception return for a touchdown off an errant throw from Rams quarterback Brayden Fowler-Nicolosi.
Sanders hit midfield and took a page out of his father’s book, hitting a brief high step before realizing that he actually had to get on his horse and hightail it into the end zone.

The Buffaloes remain must-watch television under Deion Sanders, as Colorado looks to move to 3–0 on the season on Saturday night before the schedule gets much tougher heading into Pac-12 play.
Colorado is more than a three-score favorite on Saturday, but heads to Oregon next Saturday and hosts USC in the final weekend in September.
