J.T. Shrout, a member of the Tennessee football team for 3 seasons before transferring to Colorado, is reportedly set for his 1st-ever start with the Buffaloes on Saturday against Air Force.

Shrout signed with the Volunteers from the class of 2018 and played in 8 games with 1 start. His lone starting assignment for Tennessee came against UAB on Nov. 3, 2019, but he was later replaced by Jarrett Guarantano.

Following the 2020 season, Shrout entered the transfer portal, ultimately landing at Colorado. But he suffered a knee injury during fall camp in 2021 and missed the entire season.

He saw his first action with the Buffaloes on Sept. 2 vs. TCU as he replaced Brendon Lewis in the 3rd quarter. His first appearance in a college football game in nearly 21 months saw him go 13-of-23 for 157 yards and a touchdown.

Now, Shrout will be behind center to start the game against Air Force as the Buffs look to make it a 1-1 start to the young 2022 season.
