Colorado safety Shilo Sanders not expected to play against Caleb Williams, No. 8 USC: report

The Colorado Buffaloes are facing their first test of adversity on Saturday as No. 8 USC rolls into Boulder. 

The Buffaloes are coming off a massive defeat against Oregon, looking thoroughly outclassed in Deion Sanders’ Pac-12 debut. The Ducks took a 35-0 lead into halftime and defeated Colorado 42-6.

One of college football’s top offensives now comes to town, and Colorado is expected to be without one of its best defensive players.

The Trojans, led by reigning Heisman Trophy winner Caleb Williams, lead the country in points per game (55.0) and are third in the nation in yards per game (569.3). 

“The kid is a playmaker,” Coach Sanders said of Williams. “He’s the epitome of class and confidence in what he brings to the table. He makes plays. He makes that team go. He’s a handful.”

USC and Colorado kickoff at 12:00 p.m. ET on FOX.
