Colorado football coach Dan "It's the Big 12, brotha'!" Hawkins said today that quarterback Tyler Hansen will be the starter on Saturday night against Baylor.
There was a little doubt about that after the Buffs were shutout at Missouri on Saturday. Hansen is completing 65 percent of his passes for 833 yards with 5 TDs and 5 picks. He's also been sacked 13 times.
He was 15-of-21 against Missouri with one int. and was sacked once. Backup, and former starter, Cody Hawkins played as well.
CU's counterpart, Baylor, doesn't have any QB issues.
Robert Griffin III appears to be more than back from his torn knee he suffered last season."
"He's extremely talented," Hawkins said today. "He's not just a runner, he can throw. He's a great player in a great system. He's a huge challenge. Huge."
