What Colorado’s starting lineup could look like against Oregon without Travis Hunter

Colorado will be without one of its top offensive and defensive talents for at least the next three weeks after two-way star Travis Hunter suffered a lacerated liver against Colorado State. While no other player in college football compares to Hunter and what he brings to the table, the Buffs do have depth that’s ready to step up against Oregon.

But as safety Shilo Sanders said earlier this week, losing Hunter is like losing two players, which certainly stings heading into Colorado’s most challenging game of the young season.

Here’s how I project head coach Deion Sanders’ starting lineup to look in the Buffs’ Pac-12 opener at Oregon:

Surprise! Heisman favorite Shedeur Sanders will be under center for the Buffs in Week 4. He’ll have to come up big once again for Colorado to upset the Ducks.

I’ll go out on a limb here and suggest that Deion Sanders may consider starting Alton McCaskill IV in his first game back from injury. Coach Prime said that McCaskill shed his no-contact practice jersey and the Buffs are certainly looking for a spark in the run game. If not, Edwards will likely get the start.

Xavier Weaver has been one of Shedeur Sanders’ favorite targets all season and he’ll be asked to do even more with Hunter out.

WR2 Jimmy Horn Jr.

Jimmy Horn Jr. had an up-and-down game against Colorado State, but he capped it off with a 45-yard touchdown.

WR3 Tar’Varish Dawson

Tar’Varish Dawson started last week and he’s in a prime position to start again at Oregon.

TE Michael Harrison

The world got to know Michael Harrison last week as the walk-on tight end hauled in two overtime touchdowns.
