Deion Sanders’ Colorado Buffaloes continue to innovate: the team has now sold out all of its home games this season, a first for any school.
The university announced Tuesday that tickets have already gone for upcoming games against USC, Stanford, Oregon State and Arizona. Colorado had already played in front of a packed house against Nebraska and Colorado State.
It’s the latest indication of how Coach Prime has reinvigorated the program. Earlier Tuesday, it was revealed that Colorado’s double-overtime win over Colorado State, which ended in the early hours of Sunday across most of the country, drew 9.3 million viewers.
That made it the most-watched late-night college football game on ESPN, the network said.

“Ladies and gentlemen, Shedeur is special,” said Stephen A. Smith.

Stephen A. went on to say that the young quarterback had “the composure, the intellect, the athleticism, the arm strength, the courage, the ‘desire for the moment.’
“This kid here, when you see talent, that’s one thing. But knowing that (Deion Sanders is) his father, and having that spotlight on him, and playing the way he plays here (shows the mastermind), not just with his abilities, we have a potential superstar on our hands. . This brother is special, right? He is very special.
