Home E Big 12 E BIG 12 Football Preview, Week 1

Our feature game of the week that doesn’t include UCF, is future Big 12 conference mate Colorado taking on last years College Football National Championship game participant TCU. Deion Sanders has certainly made a splash at Colorado with his larger than life persona, a massive roster turnover and bringing along his son Shedeur from Jackson State to quarterback the Buffalos. TCU Coach Sonny Dykes has a change at quarterback as well with the graduation of Heisman Candidate Max Duggan who started the season behind Chandler Morris, but retook the reigns when Morris went down with injury against Colorado in the opener last year. The redshirt freshman Morris is back under center where the offense is replacing 8 starters under new OC Kendall Briles
