CU Buffs’ Omarion Miller gets love from Michael Irvin, Michael Westbrook after breakout day vs. USC

0 25

BOULDER — That puppy just became a dawg.

“Incredible player,” Michael Irvin told me, loud and proud, as we walked off Folsom Field together Saturday. “Incredible player.”

After a few steps, the three-time Super Bowl champ and Pro Football Hall of Famer crept up behind that incredible player, sight unseen.

Then he pulled CU freshman wide receiver Omarion Miller close, like a cheeky uncle, and kissed that dawg straight on the helmet.

“Big-time players make big-time plays in big moments,” Irvin, the former Miami Hurricanes All-American, said to the teen from Louisiana. “And that was (big).”

Was it ever. You know how you’ve found a star? When they make the freaking impossible look routine. Then they go out and top it.

With 1:26 left in the third quarter, Buffs down 27 and trying not to get Oregon-ed again, the 6-foot-2 freshman beat USC’s Jacobe Covington in a dead sprint up the left boundary, reached out with his left arm while Covington was pinning his right, cradled the rock like an Easter egg and turned the heave into a 44-yard gain.

And that was only the appetizer. The play that got Irvin rocking, that got everybody rolling, capped the Buffs’ first drive of the fourth stanza.

Facing a fourth-and-5 from the USC 9, trailing 48-27, CU quarterback Shedeur Sanders rolled to his right and found Miller, who was running parallel to him, in the end zone. The Buffs signal-caller fired a dart on the run to the freshman, who somehow secured the ball as he slid, senior Trojans safety Bryson Shaw draped across his belly.

“We go over those plays every day,” Miller said of his first Buffs touchdown and one of the offensive highlights of a 48-41 CU loss, its 17th straight to the Men of Will Ferrell.
