The first half of Colorado State-Colorado didn’t go how many attendees expected in the first half, and the Rams put an exclamation point with a bit of Deion Sanders flavor.

With the game tied 14-14 with 4:18 left in the second, Colorado State quarterback Brayden Fowler-Nicolosi hit wide receiver Louis Brown for a 15-yard touchdown to take a game lead. The oddsmakers expected them to lose by at least three touchdowns.

In a game full of bad blood, Brown celebrated his touchdown with an imitation of the opposing head coach’s iconic touchdown dance. He then mocked Colorado quarterback Shedeur Sanders, Deion’s son, by impersonating the inclination of the passerby from flashing his watch.

Colorado State went into halftime with a 21-14 lead, which had to feel pretty good after an unusually chippy run to the game.

Rams head coach Jay Norvell turned heads Wednesday with some comments about his in-state rival, especially how he was “tired” of the hype the Buffaloes were getting after a 2-0 start and some pointed comments about Deion’s hat and sunglasses.

The elder Sanders made the comments a thing in the following days. He promised that the Colorado mascot would come out wearing a hat and sunglasses. He rallied the team around the way the Rams had made it “personal.” In the hours before the game, Shedeur Sanders and Travis Hunter started working on it with Colorado State players on the field.

The first half was as contentious as promised, and fun all around with defensive touchdowns on both sides, although the low point came with a foul hit on Hunter that temporarily knocked the two-way star out of the game.
