Shedeur Sanders arrived to Autzen Stadium with a determined look on his face as No. 19 Colorado (3–0) faces one of its toughest games of the season in a road matchup against No. 10 Oregon (3–0) on Saturday afternoon.
He also had some esteemed company alongside him.
The Buffaloes quarterback—donning his shades—entered the Ducks’ premises with Pro Football Hall of Fame wide receiver Terrell Owens early Saturday afternoon as Colorado looks to keep its unblemished season intact through Week 4.
Ahead of Saturday’s game, Colorado football coach Deion Sanders said on the ESPN broadcast that he is confident in his players, despite the team’s failure to orchestrate an all-around dominant performance in all three phases of the game thus far.
“We have not [put it together] yet,” Sanders said. “We feel like this is the day that the world is going to get an opportunity to get to see us in rare form.”
Shedeur, the son of the Buffaloes’ coach, has thrown for 1,251 yards with 10 touchdowns and one interception through three weeks in the college football season. The junior signal-caller’s production also includes a 98-yard game-tying drive that led to the Buffaloes eventually pulling off a double overtime win against Colorado State last Saturday.
