Deion Sanders and the Colorado Buffaloes have recently made waves in the world of college football. After a stunning victory over last year’s national championship runner-up TCU, they made their much-anticipated home debut. However, it’s not just their on-field talent that’s grabbing attention – their fashion sense is also turning heads. Prior to their game against rival Nebraska Cornhuskers, the Buffaloes football team sported custom suits, designed with the help of their head coach.
“We’re under a lot of scrutiny, so I wanted to ensure the team looked impeccable, paying attention to every detail, from the stitch colors to the ‘I BELIEVE’ message on the inside,” said Sanders in an interview with GQ Sports. He enlisted the help of New York Giants legend and Pro Football Hall of Famer Michael Strahan, who has his own menswear line, to design the team’s bespoke suits. The khaki suits featured a black lining with the Colorado logo, and each jacket had a monogrammed tag with the player’s name. The team also wore ties from the Prime Neckwear line.
The No. 22 Buffaloes secured a resounding 36-14 victory over Nebraska in front of a sold-out crowd. The defense was particularly dominant, forcing four turnovers throughout the game. Sanders, also known as “Coach Prime,” has expressed great confidence in his son, Shedeur, who he believes will be a contender for the Heisman Trophy this year. Shedeur threw for an impressive 510 yards last week, and he followed it up with a 393-yard performance against Nebraska. It seems that the talented junior quarterback is making a strong case for himself in the early stages of the season, capturing the attention of Heisman voters.
Sanders added a personal touch to his success on the field by paying homage to his father’s iconic dance from his NFL playing days while celebrating a 6-yard rushing touchdown. The Buffaloes will next host Colorado State on September 16th as they continue to make a name for themselves in college football.
