Milwaukee Bucks news: College football gifted us with an instant classic over the weekend as the Colorado Buffaloes took down Colorado State in a double-overtime showdown for the ages. So much so, that it may have even converted self-proclaimed non-football fan Giannis Antetokounmpo into an avid spectator.
Milwaukee Bucks Star Giannis Antetokounmpo Reacts to Wild Game
The rivalry game between Colorado and Colorado State made such an impact on the sports world that even the Bucks superstar had to turn in. Giannis admitted that he doesn’t follow football in general, but at the same time, he took to Twitter to express his mind-blown reaction to the double OT thriller:
I don't watch football but that was a heck of a game 🔥

Does this mean Giannis will now start following college football? If he does, Deion Sanders and the Colorado Buffaloes would not be a bad place to start at all.
Deion Sanders, Colorado Put in Performance for the Ages
As far as rivalry games in college football go, you can certainly count this one as one of the best of them. The fact that the entire arena was packed to witness No. 19 Colorado take on the Colorado State Rams is a clear testament to this fact. There were even more than a couple of celebrities in attendance, which included the likes of Lil’ Wayne, Kawhi Leonard, and Dwyane “The Rock” Johnson, to name a few.
Sanders and his boys delivered. The NFL legend’s own son, Shadeur Sanders, led a last-minute drive in the fourth quarter to force OT. It had to take two extra periods to determine a winner. As soon as the Buffaloes secured the win, their fans rushed to the field in a truly epic scene:

After the game, Deion Sanders had nothing but high praise for his squad:
“We showed that we have no surrender or give-up in us,” Deion Sanders said, via the Associated Press. “They never doubted themselves.”
Well, that’s one thing Sanders and his Buffaloes share with Giannis Antetokounmpo, for sure.
