Why Colorado can cover:
The Buffaloes will aim to improve a ground game that managed just 56 yards last week. Though they rushed for two scores, QB Shedeur Sanders and WR Jordyn Tyson found the end zone. Colorado has options in RBs Dylan Edwards and Anthony Hankerson to challenge a Stanford defense that gave up 208 rushing yards last game.
Edwards leads Colorado with 217 yards on 47 carries, while Hankerson has 48 rushes for 214 yards. Edwards is also a top target, making 20 catches for 193 yards and three TDs.
Why Stanford can cover:
Colorado must account for TE Benjamin Yurosek, who has 15 catches for 227 yards and a TD. He’s 10th nationally in receiving yards for a tight end. Sophomore WR Elic Ayomanor has been productive with 15 catches for 207 yards and a score. RBs Casey Filkins and E.J. Smith average 6.4 yards per carry this year.
