The injury that kept two-way star Travis Hunter from Colorado’s last three games did not slow him down during his Friday night return.

Hunter dominated on both sides of the ball to help lead the Buffaloes to a 29-point first-half lead over the Stanford Cardinal. However, the Buffaloes ended up losing 46-43 in double overtime.

Still, Hunter had a game to remember, finishing with 13 catches for 140 yards and two touchdowns on offense while adding five tackles on defense.

Quarterback Shedeur Sanders started things off with a 38-yard run on Colorado’s opening drive to the end zone.

Hunter, who spent the game switching between wide receiver and cornerback, turned Colorado’s second possession of the game into another scoring opportunity by completing a 24-yard receiving touchdown.

Travis Hunter spin for that TD was disgusting

Hunter then opened the second half by showing off deft evasive maneuvers on a first down, following by an impressive touchdown catch while being hit by two defenders in the fourth quarter.

It’s safe to say Colorado fans noticed the difference in their team with Hunter back on the field.

Real matters @johnrea57213957

Buffs are 6-0 if he doesn’t get hurt

Roy Hobbs @pharoah769

CU a different team when Travis Hunter in the game. He’s rare.

Jalen Promesse ✞ ✞ ✞ @jpthree_

With Travis Hunter back, Colorado back in the mix

Dr. John Gaines @PushGaines

Colorado is a completely different team with Travis Hunter —it’s a bad year for Stanford but Hunter is the best skill player in all of college football.

The Real Avery Lynch @YoungBull_Lynch

Glad so Travis Hunter back on the field #GoBuffs

Donnell Suggs @suggswriter

Understatement of the year: Travis Hunter is an #NFL player biding his time in #collegefootball

Baba Jaga👹 @SackChaserSmvsh

Travis Hunter might mess around and be in the top 5 if not #1 when he declares for the draft

By the end of the first half, Sanders had 200 passing yards on 14-of-18 throwing for three touchdowns. He also added 72 yards on the ground.

His performance led fans to ponder the fact that Sanders will be draft eligible in 2024.

Brian Howell @BrianHowell33

Shedeur Sanders has 19 TD passes this year. That’s already tied for the 6th-most in a single season in CU history, and we’re not even at halftime of Game 7 #cubuffs

H @DynastyBuffs

Shedeur Sanders is QB1 in 2025

Riley Kennemer @RiKennemer

Shedeur Sanders throws such a pretty deep ball.

Ryan Prewitt @r_prewitt90

Unpopular opinion: I’d rather the Broncos take Shedeur Sanders than Caleb Williams. #BroncosCountry

Jugg❤️ @sideshowish

I really think Shedeur Sanders is the best player in college football and will be a little better than Joe Burrow

✌🏽 @DwaneRobinson4Q

Shedeur Sanders is a very very good quarterback btw. I’m glad he’s staying next year, he’ll get a Heisman I think.

Vince LaSalle @echo_LaSalle

Shedeur Sanders I’d DEFINITELY making it into the league. Both of Prime boys gonna make it. Lots of cats from tht team gonna make it. Those boys really ball out. There’s no way you can deny tht. 💯

Melvin L. Hayes @MelvinLHayes

Shedeur Sanders in the right NFL system is going to ball out.

Including Friday night, the Buffs needed two wins in their final six games to become bowl eligible for the first time in seven years. Colorado’s next step toward that eligibility comes during an October 28 contest against UCLA.
