Deion Sanders is getting comfortable sitting at the college football winners table after leading the University of Colorado Boulder to its third victory on Saturday (Sept. 16).

The win came at the price of double overtime, and wide receiver Travis Hunter was benched after he suffered an injured abdomen around halftime in their matchup against Colorado State University. Hunter is expected to be out for at least a few weeks. The final scoreboard read 43-35, making the Buffaloes undefeated. “We showed that we were resilient,” said Deion as he spoke with ESPN immediately after securing the win. “We showed that we would fight. We showed that we had no surrender or give up in us, and that’s a lot for a team that’s fairly new.”

Deion set the tone for the showdown after enlisting his friend Lil Wayne for a live performance as his team made their way from the locker room, out of the tunnel, and onto the field. The rap legend amped up spectators with “Ride 4 My N**gas” while decked out in the custom Lil Tunechi football jersey he was gifted to represent the school. “I love Lil Wayne like he’s my son,” said the NFL great in a post-game conference.

Across social media, the proud bandwagon of Boulder fans showed a strong wave of support despite the game continuing well into the two o’clock hour Sunday (Sept. 17) morning in Eastern Standard Time.

Deion’s sons Shilo and Shedeur both had standout moments in the game that turned around in the Buffaloes’ favor during the second half. Both young men were under their father’s guidance when he served as the head coach of Jackson State University’s football team.

In true “Prime Time” fashion, Deion reminded the press that Shedeur’s off-the-wall performance has always been there — people are just now tuning in. “You just ain’t seen those moments. So you’re just getting to see those moments. That’s who he is,” he told a reporter. The 21-year-old also played a pivotal role in the team’s first victory on Sept. 2 against Texas Christian University.
