Sam and football team were honored at halftime for their Cotton Bowl win over Oklahoma State.

Wearing a shirt declaring "We Are All CoMo Sexuals," 51-year-old Michelle Carmichael joined more than a thousand others in forming a line of support for Sam.

The shirt plays off the nickname of Columbia, where Sam announced to his teammates in August that he was gay. The NFL hopeful shared his sexuality with the world last Sunday.
