The Colorado vs. Colorado State football matchup this week created quite a buzz, with the rivalry between the two teams taking center stage. The drama began when Colorado State coach Jay Norvell made a not-so-subtle comment about Colorado coach Deion Sanders wearing his hat and sunglasses during interviews. Although Norvell tried to backtrack on his comments later, the damage was done. Sanders responded by declaring the game “personal” and even gifted sunglasses to his entire Buffaloes' team. He took a playful jab at Norvell.

In essence, the Rams vs. Buffaloes rivalry was cranked up a few notches.

Sanders didn't stop there. He continued to mock Norvell during Fox's pregame show and brought celebrities like Li'l Wayne and Offset to the sidelines during the highly-anticipated game. They even had a tense pregame warm-up.
