The Colorado Buffaloes football team, under the leadership of Coach Prime, has been in the spotlight since his arrival. From disappointing losses to winning streaks and a significant roster turnover, the team has consistently attracted attention. This time, however, the spotlight shines on the team’s two-way phenom, Travis Hunter, and safety Shilo Sanders for their individual achievements.

Hunter recently graced the deluxe edition poster of the EA Sports College Football video game alongside other football stars. Meanwhile, Sanders made his mark in Boulder by portraying his father, Deion Sanders, in the crime drama series “Black Mafia Family.” These accomplishments propelled the Colorado Buffaloes’ popularity, boosting their overall appeal.

The podcast shifted focus to another accomplishment for the Buffs: Shilo Sanders’ role in the Starz television show “Black Mafia Family.” Borba praised Sanders’ personality, describing him as “the guy that do imitations of his father Deion Sanders.” Borba continued, “He not only got to do an imitation of him but he got to do a little more than that because he was on TV show on Starz…it was hilarious.” Thus, Shilo’s successful TV debut also makes the Colorado Buffaloes more popular, even during this offseason.

Coach Prime’s Colorado Buffaloes faced tough times with many players leaving and criticizing his ways, calling the team “click-based” and saying Deion “destroyed guys’ confidence.” However, he managed to find 39 new players to replace those who left, showing signs of a turnaround. Things were looking good for a while, but then a prediction for the 2025 draft put their star player, Shedeur Sanders, lower than Georgia’s QB Carson Beck, raising further concerns. However, the last few days have brought a wave of positive attention for the Buffaloes. Travis Hunter secured a spot on the cover of the EA Sports College Football video game, leveraging his NIL deal to boost both his own and the team’s profile. Curiously, Shedeur Sanders is absent from the deluxe edition cover despite previous rumors of him being featured.

But Shilo Sanders made up for the Sanders family name by landing a role in the third season of the popular TV show “Black Mafia Family,” reportedly earning a substantial paycheck. His role in the popular TV show, which had 5.1 million viewers for its first episode, further boosted the Buffaloes’ visibility. Despite Shedeur’s recent setbacks, Travis Hunter and Shilo Sanders are stepping up to keep the Colorado Buffaloes in the spotlight.
