Colorado, Deion Sanders debut epic new prop: a turnover throne

Gabriela Carroll

Some teams have a turnover chain. Others have turnover sunglasses, or a turnover chainsaw. But Deion Sanders and Colorado always do things differently. On Saturday against Nebraska, Colorado debuted a new turnover prop: the turnover throne.

When a Colorado player causes a turnover, they get the royal treatment and get to sit on the throne, just below the student section.

The throne got plenty of use in the home opener. Nebraska quarterback Jeff Sims fumbled the ball on the game's opening possession, and after defensive end Arden Walker recovered the football, he ran straight to the turnover throne to celebrate with his teammates.

Sims had two more turnovers in the first half, an interception and another lost fumble, and Nebraska fumbled another ball away in the second half.

The Buffaloes won the turnover battle 4-1 on Saturday, and Colorado dominated Nebraska en route to a 36-14 win to bring their record to 2-0.

Colorado and its turnover throne will get the royal treatment from "College GameDay" and "Big Noon Kickoff" next weekend against Colorado State.
