Rapper and Migos member Takeoff was fatally shot in Houston on Tuesday morning, and now Jackson State head coach Deion Sanders is taking extra steps to keep his team safe on their road trip there this weekend. Sanders set strict ground rules for the Tigers’ road game against Texas Southern.

Outside of the game itself, Sanders doesn’t want his players to leave their hotel rooms. Sanders told the team that all visitors should come to the hotel, as opposed to players meeting them elsewhere.

“Takeoff was murdered during a craps game in Houston,” Sanders said, according to USA Today. “Where we’re going. So that’s stopping you all from leaving the hotel because it won’t happen until I give you another notice. Whatever her name, whoever she is, her parents, and whoever she is. “They’ll see. come to the hotel to visit you. Because you’re not leaving.

After news of Takeoff’s death reached social media, a number of famous athletes from the sports world paid tribute to former Migos member.

After a 35-0 loss to Southern, the Tigers are now 5-0 and atop the SWAC standings. Now they face a Texas Southern team that is 4-4 overall and 3-2 in conference.

This match kicks off at PNC Stadium in Houston at 7:00 p.m. ET and will be streamed on ESPN+.
