WATCH: This Hit Will Knock Your Socks…and Helmet…Off

Mother, don’t your sons grow to be quarterbacks…especially if Tai’yon Devers is lurking.

Colorado State met up with Devers and the Minnesota Gophers today for a road tilt at TCF Bank Stadium. There, freshman Collin Hill was officially welcomed to the world of big-time college football, crushed by Devers, who not only knocked the ball out for a Gophers recovery, but also sent Hill’s helmet flying an equal distance.

The 11-yard sack was the 3rd of the season for Devers, who is also a freshman. The Gophers took the subsequent fumble and converted it into a field goal to go up 17-7. The Gophers would eventually win the game 31-24 to improve to a perfect 3-0 on the season.
