Colorado Suspends Shedeur Sanders After Eye Poke Enrages Rivals
The football program will not discipline Colorado quarterback Shedeur Sanders for seeming to poke a Colorado State player in the eyes on Saturday.
Referees didn't witness the signal-caller's apparent attack on Colorado State lineman Mohamed Kamara during the 43-35 double-overtime win.
Sanders has passed for 10 touchdowns and one interception this year, completing 78.7% of his passes.
Without leading receiver Travis Hunter, who was injured by a late hit, he led a fourth-quarter drive that tied the game against Colorado State.
He then threw two touchdowns in overtime as Colorado kept its undefeated streak alive.
Colorado State's defense revolves around Kamara, whom Sanders poked in the eye.
Mo's a big leader to the team, obviously a huge physical presence out there," safety Jack Howell told the Denver Gazette before the season. "He's raising great young d-ends."
Colorado State players and supporters were upset to watch Shedeur Sanders approach the pass rusher, and they may be even more upset that the quarterback and son of head coach Deion Sanders will play Saturday against Oregon after avoiding a punishment.
