Deion Sanders and the Colorado Buffaloes remain unbeaten on the season.

The Colorado State Rams had upset on the brain Saturday night at Folsom Field, but behind a brilliant and clutch display from Colorado’s starting quarterback, the 18th-ranked Buffaloes survived in double-overtime for a 43-35 win.

“To be great, you’re gonna have to be resilient,” Sanders said on the field immediately after the game. “You’re going to have to overcome adversity. That was a tremendous, tremendous amount of adversity, and we overcame it.”

Colorado took over at its 2-yard-line with 2:02 to play trailing by eight points. It needed magic from quarterback Shedeur Sanders. And that’s exactly what Sanders delivered.

With the game on the line, Sanders drove the Buffs 98 yards in seven plays and 1:30. He had completions of 11, 16, and 26 yards before hitting Jimmy Horn Jr. for a 45-yard touchdown. Sanders connected on the game-tying two-point conversion right after to force overtime.

What was Sanders’ message to his son?

“Do what you do,” he said.

And what did Sanders learn about his team from the win?

“Patience,” he said with a laugh.

Colorado takes the show on the road next week to face No. 13 Oregon (3-0) at Autzen Stadium. The Ducks beat Hawaii on Saturday 55-10 and will be eagerly awaiting the start of Pac-12 play against the conference’s hottest team.
