Welcome to the new reality in college football: The No. 22 Colorado Buffaloes and quarterback Shedeur Sanders are for real.

Sanders, son of new Buffs head coach Deion Sanders, had his second straight crazy stats game, racking up 393 yards passing and two touchdowns to lead an easy 36-14 victory over the Nebraska Cornhuskers in Coach Prime’s home debut.

Even when things didn’t appear to be going Colorado’s way, they ended up going that way, as on this deflected pass that resulted in a completion for Sanders.

The Buffaloes were loose enough in this one to roll out some trickery late in the game, as wide receiver Tar’Varish Dawson scored on a reverse in the fourth quarter to make it a three-score game.

For the second straight week, the Colorado Buffaloes, Coach Prime and Shedeur Sanders impressed the heck out of college football fans.
