Terrell Owens, Phil Knight among celebs in Oregon to watch Colorado – USA TODAY


The Colorado Buffaloes and coach Deion Sanders have already turned heads with some celebrity appearances in their first few games of 2023.
Last week the Buffaloes’ double-overtime win against Colorado State featured a star-studded cast of supporters. Master P and “Migos” rapper Offset played ping pong pre-game in the locker room. Rapper Lil Wayne led the team out to Folsom Field. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson joined coach Sanders and Sanders’ mother for a pre-game speech after surprising Sanders on the set of ESPN’s College Gameday. Rapper Key Glock performed in the Buffaloes’ locker room after the win.
Now, Colorado is proving that celebrity support can continue on the road, too. The Buffaloes play No. 10 Oregon in Eugene to open Pac-12 conference play and more celebrities are on hand for the matchup.

It’s not unusual to see Nike cofounder and University of Oregon alum Phil Knight at Autzen Stadium for Ducks games. It is out of the ordinary to see Knight embrace the visiting team’s coach pre-game as he did with Sanders Saturday afternoon.
Back in 1993, Nike made Sanders’ signature shoe: “The Nike Air Diamond Turf.” It was marketed as both a football and baseball shoe. Sanders wore it in acton for the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta Braves in 1993. Nike ended up producing five editions of the shoe: the Air Diamond Turf, Air Diamond Turf II, Air Diamond Turf Max 96, Air Diamond Turf IV, and Air Diamond Turf V.

NFL Hall of Fame wide receiver Terrell Owens made it to Eugene for the game against the Ducks. He met up with Buffaloes quarterback Shedeur Sanders pre-game outside the stadium. He later joined the Buffaloes sideline pre-game wearing a “Coach Prime” t-shirt.

It’s around two hours to drive from Portland down to the University of Oregon in Eugene. The Portland Trailblazers’ top pick in the 2023 NBA Draft, Scoot Henderson, made the trip with teammate Anfernee Simons.
Don’t worry Blazers fans, they were on the Ducks’ sideline.
