Colorado improved to 2-0 after beating Nebraska on Saturday. The win was a lot sweeter for Shedeur Sanders knowing that the win came against Matt Rhule’s team.

The Buffaloes quarterback didn’t hide the animosity he had against Rhule following the 36-14 thrashing of the Cornhuskers at Folsom Field in Boulder, Colo.

“It was extremely personal,” Sanders said after the game. “The coach said a lot of things about my pops, about the program — but now he wanna act nice. I don’t respect that.”

However, the younger Sanders clearly did not forget about Rhule’s apparent shot against coach Prime before the college football season began.

Sanders threw for 393 yards — almost four times more than Nebraska counterpart Jeff Sims — with 2 touchdowns and no interceptions. Colorado led 13-0 at the half and managed to extend their lead in the second half.

Colorado has a chance to go 3-0 when they face off against Colorado State next Saturday.
