Colorado's Shedeur Sanders and Travis Hunter avoid pregame player fight

The pregame jawing back and forth has increased the level of intensity for the Rocky Mountain Showdown by a factor of one thousand.

 It all started with CSU coach Jay Norvell's words directed toward Colorado's Deion Sanders, but now the players are now suffering the effects of those comments.

Shedeur Sanders, the quarterback for Colorado, and Travis Hunter, a standout on both offense and defense, walked out during pregame warm-ups 

and found themselves in the center of a shoving match at midfield between players from opposing teams. The candidates for the Heisman hurriedly left the field as the players were being separated. 

Because Sanders and the Buffs feel that Norvell has mistreated them, this is likely going to be one of the most intense Rocky Mountain Showdowns that has ever taken place. 

Before the Rams coach opted to get personal on Wednesday during his appearance on his weekly radio show, the previous week had been a mello week. 

Colorado is looking to win their sixth consecutive game against Colorado State. BetMGM gives them a point spread advantage of 23.5 heading into the in-state matchup that they're competing in. 

The greatest victory margin over the Rams in the last 18 seasons. It would be the longest winning streak for the Buffs, extending all the way back to 1998, if they were able to pull off a victory.
