Shedeur Sanders and the Colorado Buffaloes faced the USC Trojans in a crucial game in Week 5 and they came up short. Their fans and head coach Deion Sanders were certainly proud of the performance they showed on the field, especially in the second half.

But it wasn’t until after the match that Shedeur and his brother Deion Sanders Jr. got a pleasant surprise. They had a guest and he was also a three-time Super Bowl champion who came to encourage Shedeur and his teammates. Despite Colorado’s loss, their fans still came away quite satisfied with what they saw on their team’s home field. The three-time Super Bowl champion is proud of his “nephews” and even posed for photos with them.

The NFL legend caught up with Shedeur Sanders and his brother

NFL legend Michael Irvin was at Folsom Field to watch his friend Deion Sanders lead the Colorado Buffaloes against the feared USC Trojans. The former Dallas Cowboys player uploaded a photo to Instagram of himself posing with Colorado QB Shedeur Sanders and his brother Deion Sanders Jr.

“Yesterday with my nephews after the game,” Irving wrote in the caption of his Instagram post.

Irving and Deion Sanders’ friendship dates back to their days in the NFL. Sanders and Irving have spoken many times about the relationship they share and always have the nicest things to say about each other. This bond is now dissolving in both families.

Irving felt proud to see Shedeur Sanders and his team lead a comeback effort against the Trojans in the second half, after falling far behind. And they had almost reached the top of the impassable mountain.

Deion Sanders and Colorado battle USC

At the end of the first half of Week 5 play, it looked like a repeat of the Oregon Ducks’ game against Colorado. But the Buffaloes took the field in the second half almost as if they were a completely different team. They put up a fight that their fans came to see, even causing Deion Sanders to say he was proud of what they did.

Trailing 34-14 at halftime, the Buffaloes’ defense held Caleb Williams and his offense to 14 points throughout the second half. Additionally, Shedeur Sanders led the offensive comeback and had 27 points from it. In the end, the Buffaloes lost 41-48.

Next, they will face Arizona State, who has a similar 1-4 record thus far. Will Colorado finally win after consecutive losses?
