The Colorado Buffaloes may have just found a new starting wide receiver.
After not recording a single reception in the Buffs’ first four games, true freshman Omarion Miller, a former four-star recruit out of Louisiana, went absolutely ballistic in the second half of Saturday’s game against the No. 8 USC Trojans.

His first catch went for 65 yards but that was only a taste of what was to come. All told, the rookie receiver finished with seven receptions for 196 yards, including a nine-yard touchdown.
Unfortunately for the Buffs, however, their Miller-fueled rally fell short, 48-41.
Here’s how social media reacted to Miller’s breakout performance:
