Travis Hunter is the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week for Week 1.

Shedeur Sanders is the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week.

And freshman running back Dylan Edwards took home the Pac-12’s Freshman of the Week award.

When the conference announced weekly honors on Tuesday, three of the six awards going to Colorado players was a fitting acknowledgment of the magnitude of CU’s win over the weekend. The Buffs went to Fort Worth in Deion Sanders’ debut as head coach and knocked off then-No. 17 TCU, 45-42.

That win rocketed the Buffs into the AP Top 25 for the week. And it captured headlines throughout the sport.

Central to the victory were Hunter, Sanders, and Edwards.

At quarterback, Sanders completed 38 of his 47 passes for 510 yards and four touchdowns without an interception.

The performance set nine school records, including for the most passing yards in a game in program history. Sanders also set a record for yardage in an FBS debut in Pac-12 history.

He’s the first Colorado quarterback since 2016 to capture the Pac-12’s Offensive Player of the Week award.

Hunter becomes the first Colorado defensive back to earn the Pac-12’s defensive award since 2016 as well. He was one of four Colorado receivers to top 100 receiving yards on Saturday, becoming the first FBS player in at least the last 20 years to have 100 yards receiving and one interception in the same game.

Edwards brought in five receptions for 153 yards and three touchdowns out of the backfield. He added 24 yards rushing and another touchdown on the ground.

In doing so, Edwards became just the fourth true freshman in the last 27 years to score four touchdowns in an FBS debut. He was also the first true freshman to start at running back for Colorado in a season opener since 1991.
