Colorado’s Deion Sanders says training with USC’s Lincoln Riley was ‘fun for me’

Colorado may have fallen to USC 48-41 on Saturday, but head coach Deion Sanders had fun coaching his Buffaloes against the Lincoln Riley Trojans, led by Heisman Trophy favorites, Caleb Williams.

“It was fun,” Sanders told reporters after the game. “For me it’s fun.”

Sanders added about Williams:
“This kid is a real player. He makes a difference.”

USC, ranked No. 8 in the country, is one of the best teams in college football and has one of the best offenses in the country along with the Washington Huskies.

The Buffaloes entered halftime trailing the Trojans 34-14, but scored a point in the final moments of the fourth quarter before attempting an onside kick that failed and sealed the win for USC. Colorado quarterback Shedeur Sanders was solid despite the loss, completing 30 of 45 passes for 371 yards and four touchdowns against one interception, in addition to rushing for 50 yards and a score.

Freshman receiver Omarion Hampton also shocked all of college football by catching seven passes for 196 yards and a score.

“I don’t think we’ll get that from Omarion. I’ve never seen that. He didn’t practice well. That’s why he didn’t play,” Coach Prime told reporters after the match.

Williams continued his Heisman-worthy campaign by completing 30 of 40 passes for 403 yards and six touchdowns against one interception, his first of the year. He also had five carries for 12 yards.

While USC improved to 5-0, Saturday marked Colorado’s second straight loss after falling to Oregon last weekend. The Buffaloes are now 3-2 heading into next weekend’s game against Arizona State.
